Afternoon Delight: 'Highway to Hell.' On the Accordion. In Ukrainian.

by Jerome Weeks 4 Aug 2011 12:59 PM

Rock ‘n roll was made by loud guys with cheap guitars and second-hand drums. But what if you don’t even have those? You get a water bottle, an accordion and have fun banging away beside a pool.


Afternoon Delight is a daily diversion for when you’re just back from lunch, but not quite ready to get back to work. Check back tomorrow at 1 p.m. for another one.

There are actually several cover versions of the AC/DC shoutalong classic on YouTube, including one featuring an accordion and a shamizen (the Japanese guitar/banjo) with a guy whose duck mask-hat seems to be on fire. But you gotta love ordinary blokes sitting around a pool who can rock out apparently with whatever’s at hand, including a drummer who thumps a case with a plastic water bottle and a fourth member who just sits there.

Catchy, though, innit?

    I love these bad boys, especially the drummer!
