Adding a thumping rhythm, crunching guitars and screaming, screeching synths that create a sense of menace out of a song that was more cutting than threatening, Three Days Grace have added their energy to one of the most covered songs on the internet.
The vocalist Matt Walst does a respectable job at putting across the anger of the breakup of a relationship, to both himself and the other party, as opposed to the resignation found in Gotye and Kimbra’s original.
While this song might seem to be a strange choice for the band to choose to cover, vocalist Matt Walst says it hit him hard when he first heard it.
“The first time I heard Somebody That I Used to Know I got goosebumps! This has only happened to me a few times in my life” Walst says.
“I remember listening to it over and over and just being happy. Music releases a mood enhancing chemical in the brain that can set good moods and peak enjoyment. Music is truly the best drug!”
