Amanda L : Man, the lyrics to Hey Ya are actually pretty depressing. I never got past the original's upbeat tempo to really consider the lyrics. :(

Noah Lewis : How many Joe Rogan fans just found this?

ZA_Survivalist : This guys rendition is incredible. I see a bunch of vine kids trying to recapture this only to fail.. Good effort but this by far is the best cover I'll ever hear.

Odi Foldesan : I had no idea Zack Galifankis could play so well 

dasrockness : Joe Rogan bump

Dawidi L : Let's look at it this way, Andre Benjamin is a lyrical genius. This song just needed to be slowed down so you could feel the power behind the lyrics and not just dance

K Got : I like the original, but theres a few times where a cover is just plain better, and this is one of them.  This is amazing.


Bahareh Khosravi : I always thought the lyrics were a little too melancholy for how upbeat the song was. Of course Andre knew what he was doing, but this is a great re-appropriation!

frankie lavelle : Back a few years ago I was learning guitar, and scrolling through U2 acoustic covers for something to learn. This video was in the middle of them. I dropped the U2 plan and learned this tune instead. Next morning at breakfast I was about to impress the wife with my new tune. Just as I strummed the opening chord, the Outkast version came on the kitchen radio, instantly! Funny how the world works. Great cover, Obadiah Parker.

Amanda R. : My baby don't mess around Because she loves me so And this I know for sure. Uh, But does she really wanna But can't stand to see me Walk out the door. Don't try to fight the feelin' 'Cause the thought alone is killing me right now.. Uh, thank god for mom and dad For sticking two together 'Cause we don't know how... UH! [Chorus:] Hey... ya. Hey ya. Hey... ya. Hey ya. Hey... ya. Hey ya. Hey... ya. Hey ya. [Verse Two - Andre 3000] You think you've got it Oh, you think you've got it But got it just don't get it 'Til there's nothing at all We get together Oh, we get together But separate's always better when there's feelings involved If what they say is "Nothing is forever" Then what makes, then what makes, then what makes Then what makes, what makes, what makes love the exception So why you, why you Why you, why you, why you are we so in denial When we know we're not happy here...

(OH OH)

Scorch676 : He's very talented and all but this version destroys the whole subtlety and meaning of the original song. I loved the original because so many people didn't realize what he was actually singing about, which was half the point of the song

Kyle Downey : Powerful JRE

Raul Villanueva : Joe rogan brought me here

Tim Quick : Joe Rogan Podcast bought me here...

rivercitydream : This is a really cool cover. Cool how OutKast could take a serious topic and disguise with an upbeat tempo.

Caori : Y'a d'autres gens qui sont là grâce à SLG ? :3

Christopher Richter : This is how this song was meant to be sung.

Didgeridoo : This man sings straigh to my soul. Can anyone recommend me some songs/artists/musicians like him, people that sing and really make you feel something. Thank you.

William Martin : it is a rarity when a cover is better than the original, but this is one of those times
