There are some punk/hard-rock bands that have attempted playing classical pieces. For example Scatterbrain
released a stunningly good version of Mozart
's Sonata Number 3
. It's on their album Here Comes Trouble
, and it's also on an Australia
n single they released including a live version where the vocalist blames a guy in the crowd for stuffing up the guitarist's solo.
It's mad, it's frantic and it works.
Thanks to Segnbora-t for the suggestions and corrections.
