215-

7 May

I can’t talk about German music without touching upon the Scorpions. Germany and metal bands are almost synonymous and the most classic example is the Scorpions. There’s no questioning their lineage with Klaus Meine’s name and heavy accent. The Scorpions have great guitar work and it’s been exemplified by the song “Rock you like a Hurricane” which featured the killer work of Michael Schenker. But this is the Germany theme so I figured why just post up the original? Here’s Song 215- “Rock You Like A Hurricane” by the Scorpions and the Berlin Philarmonic Orchaestra. There is no greater rock and roll excess than playing with the full orchaestra, just ask Metallica. But they did this well. It took away a bit of the originals punch but there’s nothing like 100 instruments playing a song like this.
