The best Croatian rock band you’ve never heard of.

People often ask me, they ask, “Walt, what is the best Croatian rock band I don’t even know about?

Sometimes I rattle off a couple of names, just to appease them. Or toy with them. Or make them go away.

Gruhak!

I’m not sure why they posed in front of the Union Jack. They’re not from Union Jack, they’re from Croatia. Maybe they posed in front of the Union Jack because they really dig The Who. Here’s their cover of “Baba O’Riley.” The singer does an incredible Roger Daltrey. In fact, I sometimes wonder if it’s dubbed. But I don’t think so.

 

 

 

Here’s a cover of “Comfortably Numb” by Pink Floyd. Perhaps anther reason for the UJ. Check out the scream at 2:54. And if you do nothing else today, watch the second guitar solo beginning at 4:30. Awesome.

 

 

Their cover of Pink Floyd’s “Time” is also great, and well-worth a watch. In fact, I almost posted that one instead. Top to bottom, it may even be the better cover, but in the end that guitar solo won the day.

 

 

And here is one of their originals. This was done several years after the first two videos.

 

 

 

Gruhak, people. Gruhak.
