MN Vikings Skol Line Joins IA Band for “In the Air Tonight” Cover
Before the MN Vikings stomped the Oakland Raiders 34-14 at U.S. Bank Stadium last Sunday, another show was taking place outside the stadium.
Iowa "party band" The Pork Tornadoes were invited to perform during Sunday's pre-game ceremonies at Sound the North Stage at Vikings Village. According to their Facebook page, the Cedar Falls-based rockers feature a "wide variety of covers played by good-looking, well-mannered men, who like Guinness, whiskey and may or may not have beards."
During their set, they invited the official Minnesota drumline The Skol Line to perform "every drummer’s favorite song" -- Phil Collins' "In the Air Tonight" -- with them.
As seen in the video, as the band begins the song, the drummer Mike Schulte says, "How 'bout we get the Skol Drumline to play this fill with us?" As the lyrics come in, he adds, "Not yet, boys! I'll tell you when!"
The band plays through a verse and then -- as they go into the chorus -- the Skol Line is given the cue to join in.
