The Leningrad Cowboys with special guests the Red Army Choir

You see some pretty odd things on the internet, but this has to be near the top of the list.

Here's the post where I found this (by way of my podcast co-host Dave), with a bit of explanation.

...consider the Finnish rock band called The Leningrad Cowboys. A little while ago, they held a concert in Russia, in which - to the screaming applause of Russkie teen-agers - they got the Red Army Choir to join them on stage for a performance of "Sweet Home Alabama." In English. You couldn't make this up.
