The Golden Filibusters, an “a cappella quartet of kazoo-brandishing scoundrels,” managed to fit every single London Underground station into their most recent release.

All 270 stops get a mention in this number, uploaded on January 15.

The group consists of a soprano, an alto, a tenor and a bass and have been singing together since 2015.

They told Storyful, “The Glorious Filibusters formed in London in September 2015, with one mission – to grace the world with a cappella comedy, mash-ups, and sea shanties about Nando’s. As Tube dwellers and secret Gilbert & Sullivan nerds, we thought we’d have a go at singing all 270 London Underground stations. It took us about three months to learn, and we’re resolutely ignoring the Elizabeth line, because our brains can’t take anymore. This one is written by our own soprano, Jenny Draper, based on the Nightmare Song from Gilbert & Sullivan’s operetta ‘Iolanthe’, written in 1886.”
