Kasabian mash-up 'Sesame Street' theme with Beach Boys classic – watch

Band put 'Good Vibrations' into classic TV song live on Australian radio

Kasabian performed a mash-up of the Sesame Street theme tune with 'Good Vibrations' by The beach Boys while in sessions for Australian radio station Triple J.

The band were guests on the Triple J show 'Like A Version' with Serge Pizzorno admitting they used a segment of 'Good Vibrations' because the much-loved kids TV show theme does not have enough verses to fill their allotted time.

"How dare we even attempt such a thing… to attempt those harmonies at such an ungodly hour we must be insane," the guitarist joked. "I hope we haven’t offended too many people."

Kasabian are currently on tour in Australia but will return to the UK shortly and hit the road in November and December, following a one-off show as part of the iTunes Festival at London's Roundhouse on September 5.
