Nickelback is the latest act to get the “sea shanty” makeover on TikTok.

The viral craze takes moderns hits and remakes them to sound like old-fashioned songs of pirates and sailors.

UK group The Lottery Winners recently re-did Nickelback’s 2005 song, “Rockstar” and even the band noticed.

Nickelback shared the clip to their social media, saying, “Thanks to our new friends The @LotteryWinners for letting us join them on a new take of Rockstarrrr.”

What do you think of the sea shanty craze? Do you like this version of “Rockstar?” What else should get the sea shanty makeover?
