The U.S. Navy Band covered Swift's "We Are Never Getting Back Together," sea shanty-style.
A sea shanty is a song that sailors sang together while working on a ship, and typically has solos, choruses, and a deep, steady beat throughout. And because of TikTok, sea shanties are becoming more and more mainstream—which is amazing, if you ask me! And now, the U.S. Navy Band is getting in on the action.
In a video posted to Twitter, the band covers Taylor Swift's "We Are Never Getting Back Together," complete with drums and violins, sea shanty-style. And the internet is absolutely loving it! Check out the video below:
In the tweet, the U.S. Navy Band wrote, "We were very much into this music before it was cool," tagging the Navy Chief of Information Rear Admiral Charles W. Brown.
