2 Cellos
Luka Sulic & Stjepan Hauser
CD ($11.99)

Chances are you've never heard anything like this, which is why these two young British chaps have become a YouTube sensation for their madly innovative versions of modern rock 'n' roll tunes performed exactly as the CD title implies — on two cellos. It's classical meets classic rock as the duo energetically saws away on U2's “With Or Without You,” Nirvana's “Smells Like Teen Spirit,” Guns N' Roses' “Welcome  To The Jungle” and nine other unique arrangements, including their bewitching take on Michael Jackson's “Smooth Criminal,” the viral video for which got them signed to the Sony Masterworks label and prompted an invite for the tour with Elton John. Cello fever — catch it!
