YouTube LOL: Heavy Metal Busking

youtube logo lol thrash hits

You can break buskers in London down into approximately four distinct groups. You’ve got the slightly down-on-their-luck violinist/classical music buskers, you’ve got the really-crap-sub-Ocean-Colour-Scene-guitarists-covering-The-Beatles types, you’ve got those guys playing frickin’ panpipes, and you’ve got those guys playing saxophones over a backing track so complex, you wonder whether they’re just miming themselves.

What you don’t get so often is angry young men barking a capella heavy metal songs. And we’re not talking about clean-vocal stuff, either.

Watch and LOL:

“WTF IS GOING ON?!?!?”

Amazing. Bonus points if you recognised who our busker is.
