Dutch folk band put Irish twist on rock classic

They heard that American rock stars Queen of the Stone Age were coming to Amsterdam so decided to mark the occasion with their own unique rendition of No One Knows.

The band wrote on their YouTube channel:

“The magnificent band Queens of the Stone Age comes to Amsterdam on 12 November. We decided to do a tiny wee warm-up on the Rembrandtplein. So much fun to do. This is our Irish rendition inclusive Irish jig: Ten Penny Bit where you would expect the solo. We replaced the solo part with an Irish Jig called Ten Penny Bit.”
