Anyone know the name of the song/ artist from the TV commercial for Gears if War?

Like it, want it!





Cheers, Stevo

If i think it is the one you're thinking of, it is the song from the movie Donnie Darko too.

Artist: Gary Jules
Song: Mad World
Google Search for "gary jules mad world youtube"

Kel is correct.

There is also what I assume to be the original: Mad World by Tears for Fears.

The Gary Jules one is much better/slower/darker.

Great song!

Nope, incorrect. It's covered by Gary Jules whom (eerily) sounds just like Michael Stipe - but it is NOT. Good to see you use Google, however you need to dig a little deeper than simply reading the preview lines for each of the results. Google IS your friend, just not always your best one Wink
