Emocapella

You might be familiar with the a capella style of music where a group recreates the vocals and instrumentation of music with their voices. Take that concept, and throw in punk/emo from my sophomore year of high school (thats about 2001) and you get Emocapella. I found this 13-member group from George Washington University a few days ago on i guess i'm floating and was overfilled with nostalgia and the realization that emocapella often sings the songs better than the original groups.

MP3 Emocapella - Even Hitler Had A Girlfriend (Mr. T Experience)
MP3 Emocapella - At Your Funeral (Saves The Day)

here's the original (for comparison purposes)
MP3 At Your Funeral (from Stay What You Are)

From the Emocapella's site I found a video of one of their "guerilla performances" in which they basically become street singers for walker-bys on campus. They're singing Taking Back Sunday's "Cute Without the 'E' (Cut from the Team)" and it's hilarious. They actually start rocking out at the end and throwing chairs.
