Even 12 years later this just has me grinning from ear-to-ear for every moment every second of that 5 1/2 minutes

This never gets old! HAHAHAHAH I've seen it 100 times (I'm a music teacher and use this all the time for reference in planning) and I crack up laughing out loud every single time. I LOVE THIS! Thanks for bringing some joy to life.

Strangely enough, by copying dozens of songs, they ended up creating something more unique than any of them. What a performance.

This is actually bloody brilliant. Loved every second. And you just KNOW this took some time to write and arrange, because despite all these songs sharing the same four chords, the vocal melodies were just slightly different, so you KNOW they had to be on their toes when the next bit took over.

12 years later and I'm hearing this for the first time and I'm glad I did. That was great. Hope they are still doing this and killing it!

As a musician myself, this is so well put together and the fact that they did it so perfectly LIVE... I would pay serious money to witness this live!

I personally have added more than 200 views in this video and I will probably add thousands more since I can't stop watching this. A true masterpiece. Sad it's not more famous.

Irony is that a four chord song is their greatest hit.

The way they all harmonized on pinks "you dont really want to mess with me tonight" was fantastic honestly. Their voices compliment each other well

Always come back to this… a true favourite and I love how well they can change the key of so many songs without us noticing. The chord progression remains the same pattern, but most of the songs they used have different chords, this is what makes it so incredible.

I think one of the funniest things about this song is that it has probably there most popular song which is exactly the point they are making

I remember watching this when it was first broadcast and thinking it was the best thing ever. I was not wrong, it's still just as fantastic 13 years later!
