    Ehhh, didn't care for it. If I didn't know the original song, I would've stopped listening after a minute.

    Oh, and someone needs to rip that video and add lightning bolts shooting out of that guy's guitar :D

    Not bad, agree that it could've used Shinoda instead though.

    i really disliked the video for it. Kinda lame, especially when the rapper and Stan are trying to be serious while singing and the guitarist has that stupid grin on his face playing his guitar behind them, even during his solo he's raising his eye brows to the camera like his solo is the best lol.

    I like the way the chorus sounds, and I think its a good effort. If they got Stan to record this with the guys from Linkin Park (who I'm not a fan of, haha) I think it could work. The video was a bit ridiculous...though better than the original, haha.

    I like the random office-nerd looking guy playing guitar in the background.

    Random rap-style guy really throws me off.

    Everybody's rubbing their necks.

    Big props for not just remaking the same song, and changing stuff up a lot.

    Dress-shirt guitar man keeps smiling AT ME.

    I dunno it does things right and does things wrong. Grats Stan Bush.

    I like the guitar. I like the beat. I like the overall sound. But I don't like the high-pitched voice Stan Bush. The rapper seems like a forced Linkin Park wanna-be, and it kind of sounds like they forced this old song to be "epic" ... and I don't know if it works.

    I'm listening to it over and over again trying to decide.

    At 3:14 the guy is crapping his pants....

    Ehhh.... Chorus was alright. I give Stan Bush props for the attempt to modernize his old song, but it just kind of falls flat. If you try listening to it without watching the god-awful video, it actually sounds a bit better.

    But....

    I DO hope they integrate the classic version of "The Touch" into the movie in some way. Even if they just sample a few seconds of it on BB's radio voice.
