Video: Kurdish AK Karaoke is Strangely Entertaining


War is hell, but that doesn’t mean you can’t take some time to have a little fun.

These Kurdish fighters took a break from killing ISIS soldiers for an AK karaoke session. Using there AK’s as musical props they sang along to a traditional Kurdish song. Let’s break down what’s happening is this crazy video.


First up we have the lead singer. You can tell he’s the leader of the band because he has the most stylish haircut. He’s also the only person in this video not holding an AK.

AK Piano

Then we have the piano player. We are not sure that he has ever played a piano in real life, but his enthusiasm is commendable. It also seems like he has an AR stock adapter on his AK.

AK Viola

The violin player got creative by using the cleaning rod from his AKMS as a violin bow. Just look at that concentration!


The sax player is probably the most concerning part of this video. He’s using the business end of the AK as the mouthpiece. While the magazine is out the bolt is still closed. Hopefully he check to make sure that the chamber was empty.

AKstringsLast, but not least we have the guitar player. You can tell he has a lot on his mind. Maybe it’s all of the brutal fighting he has been engaged in or maybe he just want’s to be the leader of the band?

Like we said before, this video is surreal. It paints a humanizing picture of the men who are fighting ISIS with everything they have. These “band members” are more than just warriors; they are people who like to have a little fun now and then. Watch the video below and let us know what you think in the comments.
