Cover Wednesday: Acappella Edition

What do you think of when you hear acappella? Maybe this?

Well, acappella has been big on college campuses for a while now. And they're not just diving into those old school doo wop tunes; many groups have been tapping the pop-stream for some interesting selections. Here are just a few.

Now you may have heard this song on The O.C. season 2 finale or even the SNL Digital Short. But UVA's Virginia Gentlemen took Imogen Heap's Hide and Seek and gave it their own smooth twist. Want more? Listen to JT's LoveStoned.

Moving north, NYU's Mass Transit has been known to entertain their audiences with not only their voices but also their interesting dance sequences. Look as they tap their inner Chris Brown with Kiss Kiss. Enjoyed that? Try out their version of Miley Cyrus' See You Again.

Traveling further up, we make our may to Cornell's Chordials, who not only like to perform the traditional stuff but also like to play with what's new like The City is at War by Cobra Starship. Haven't had enough? Here's their rendition of You are the One by Shiny Toy Guns.
