This is climbing quickly thanks to TikTok, up to #43 today and it's not something you'd expect to be doing so well laugh.gif 'Wellerman' from Bristol acapella folk group The Longest Johns, it came out in May 2018 so it on SCR! It's certainly been stuck in my head for the last few days

gave this a listen and was fun! I'd love this to even chart top 40 for one week just for the novelty of a sea shanty making it! laugh.gif Is this the meme of those four stereotypical lads being deep faked to sing this?

220 KID and Billen Ted have quickly put out a remix which they're going to release this week. I think Scott Mills and Chris Stark are also involved in it too, madness!

Hmm this mainly just wants me to give the whole of the Futureheads acapella album 'Rant' a listen where they included 4-5 of old workers folk songs

Unfortunately 220 Kid's remix doesn't feature vocals of The Longest Johns, which is a shame as I think their cover is the strongest I've heard!

I'm not a fan sadly. I do love pirate music but I prefer it with instruments like flutes and accordions.

I didn't think I'd ever say this about a sea shanty but I am fully on board with Wellerman becoming one of the defining hits of 2021 lmao

Theyre using the vocals of Nathan Evans from TikTok where the meme is coming from!

Ah I see! I think I prefer TLJ version but his is pretty good laugh.gif

The remix doesn't seem to be out yet though, the latest update is Nathan saying it's "coming very soon" earlier!

Yeah, though he hasn't had an official version out which is why TLJ have been so high (from what I'm gathering)
