Thunderstruck by 2CELLOS

(YouTube link)

It’s gotten to the point that when I see two guys with cellos, I know it’s going to be some outrageous rock ’n’ roll. These guys are Croatian cellists Luka Sulic and Stjepan Hauser, together known as 2CELLOS. There are clearly more than two cellos in this recording (see comments), but no doubt just the two cellists. Their version of AC/DC’s  "Thunderstruck" is available at iTunes. You can also see them perform some AC/DC live in the videos "YouShook Me (All Night Long)" and "Highway to Hell."  -via Viral Viral Videos

That makes plenty of sense. The other videos I linked are live performances, so the looping trick would help a lot with those. I just assumed they had laid down several tracks in the studio.

Clearly more than 2 cellos? Sorry, only 2 cellos and a loop/delay pedal. The only part that is looped is the ostinato (ie. fast, repetitive) part. Source: I'm an orchestra director and experiment with this kind of performance.
