Koo Koo Kanga Roo

I have to say that I adore the title “Koo Koo Kanga Roo.� It reminded me of a line sung by the Beatles—one of my favorite bands—in “I Am the Walrus.� Anyway, there’s more to this video than the title. Koo Koo Kanga Roo is band composed of two college roommates from Winona, Minnesota. According to Matt Peiken they’re “sort of a blend of Beastie Boys meets Tenacious D meets Sesame Street.� I found that description amazing and throughout the whole video I couldn’t stop laughing.

The combination above just doesn’t seem right but I think these two roommates combined them quite well. Overall, I think they’re an interesting band with an interesting style. Who knew you could combine Sesame Street with the likes of the Beastie Boys and Tenacious D?
