Resheph and I were discussing the badassness of the song the other night. It's my myspace song for the time being, and you can download it from there:

The two really compliment each other well, the video and music.

Edit: Didn't mention that it's a remake of a Tears for Fears song which can be found here:

I've loved that song ever since I heard it at the end of Donnie Darko.

I hate R.E.M. Always have. The original Tears for Fears version is so much better.

Come to think of it, the Kill Switch Klick version beats them all.

I didn't know that was an R.E.M. song.

I pretty much hate everything that band has ever done, except for once in a while when I am very surprised, this being one of those cases.

i like a lot of old REM, like orange and earlier, but since then its all been down hill. specifically, 'the end of the world as we know it' and 'stand' are two of my favorites. ohh, and 'this one goes out to the one i love'. actually, come to think of it, those are the only three REM songs that i like, thought the song on the GOW trailer is pretty dang good, too.

Why are we discussing R.E.M? Did they cover it too?

REM is the band you're hearing while watching the Gears of War trailer.

Um...YES IT IS. That cover was from ages ago. Like anyone can ever mistake Stipes' voice for anyone else's. Here's a Q-Tip.

Thank you for the Q-tip, Midg. I miss A Tribe Called Quest.

What's the premise of thise game? Undead/supernatural invasion or aliens?

On the topic of Mad World, no matter who sings it, it always kind of creeps me out.

I think they're lying to us. Unless the point was to sound exactly like REM. Because it does. Listen to both, trust me. I WILL NOT BE DEFEATED!

Nah, Micheal Andrew's voice isn't nasal enough to be confused for Stipes'.

To much crappy industrial music may have a negative effect on your... well, everything.
