    In todays edition of the world famous BBC Radio 1 Live Lounge, UK-based Alternative/Drum 'n' Bass act Pendulum (who were one of the opening bands for Linkin Park's Road To Revolution: Live At Milton Keynes DVD show) gave a surprise rendition of the first single from A Thousand Suns, 'The Catalyst'. The cover, which has been been moulded into a typical Pendulum-style song containing heavy DNB style beats and a strong electronic prescence synonymous with their sound, can be listened to below:

    I think it's awesome. It's made even more awesome by the fact that next to LP, Pendulum are one of my favourite bands. :D

    Once it gets going it gives the original a run for its money.

    Haha, I was totally expecting it to transition into the beat for 'Witchcraft' at around 1:15.

    Good listen though, I quite like it

    I like the original better, but this is kind of a neat interpretation.
