    While pop/psych rock legends The Beatles might be the most famous UK band, there's no doubt that the UK is becoming more and more known for another genre - UK drill.

    The Beatles never had a chance at making a UK drill track, but what would it sound like if they had? That's what YouTuber Zeke Lanham has put together, and it absolutely slaps.

    Writing on Reddit, Zeke posted, “For some fun, I made this UK drill remix of Eleanor Rigby by The Beatles. The beat is entirely produced by me with no samples.”

    The track is haunting, featuring Sir Paul McCartney's vocals amongst 808s that'll work their way into your soul. Of course, there's liberal use of hi-hat triplets, because it wouldn't be a proper drill track otherwise. 

    The end result is a track that will convince any drill lover to give the Beatles a listen, if they haven't already. (Hi) hats off to Zeke, because this is a remix that's not only fun, but genuinely left-field.

    The YouTube comments have lost it over the remix, both positively and negatively, so give it a listen below for yourself. We're also huge fans of the artwork that Zeke's made for the track - it's hard AF.
