"One-man alternative rock YouTube band" Shai Peled loosens the song up in a rendition that sounds like Incubus covering Linkin Park. Peled does it all himself, layering guitar, bass, drums, keys, vocals and a sweet sounding xylophone. Though he starts it gently, Peled takes it to thundering heights and adds a bit of heart that's missing from even the original verison.
