I can't listen now, but I'm assuming this isn't the same one from like, 6 years ago? I think that was a BBC recording.
Street Spirit may be my favorite song of all time, and I really enjoyed the cover. I like the Darkness, so that helps. But they made it over the top without mocking the original song.
It's exactly the same version. Which brings to question why no news outlet seems to research it a bit.
