Now a decade into their career, British rock band Kasabian are clearly in their DGAF zone, as evidenced by the April release of “Eez-Eh,” the polarizing lead single from this summer’s excellent 48:13 record.
Now they’ve gone mashed up the Sesame Street theme song with the Beach Boys’ ’60s classic “Good Vibrations.” The seamless combo cut was unveiled recently during Like A Version, a popular segment of Australian radio station Triple J where a band comes in and plays a song of their own as well as a cover. Not content with just busting out any old cover — we’d hoped for Miley Cyrus’ “SMS Bangerz,” which is what we think of every time we hear “Eez-Eh” — Kasabian took two beloved jingles and merged them together.
“The riffs are kinda similar,” says guitarist Serge Pizzorno. “I hope we’ve not offended too many people.”
