2Cellos perform AC/DC classic on The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson

2Cellos performed a cover of AC/DC’s 1990 classic, “Thunderstruck”, on The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson on Thursday, and video of the appearance is available.

The tune is the latest single from the Croatian duo of Luka Sulic and Stjepan Hauser, who have made a name for themselves worldwide with the release of several YouTube videos featuring versions of past hits by international artists.

2Cellos first caught the attention of music fans around the globe in 2011 with their dueling cellos version of Michael Jackson's "Smooth Criminal," which went on to receive more than 5 million hits on YouTube in less than 3 months.

The duo’s profile then caught the attention of Elton John, who invited them to join him on tour.

2Cellos have released two albums so far, including their self-titled debut in 2011 and 2013’s “in2ition.”

Both projects feature covers of well known rock and pop songs by artist like Guns N’ Roses, U2, Nirvana, The Police and more.
