Saw this yesterday. It's cool that they're paying their respects to Adam, but holy shit that has to be the gayest cover of any song I've ever heard.

It would have been more fascinating if they kept the energy of that song rather than mellow it down.

I didn't think it was possible to pussify this song, but leave it to Coldplay to pull that off.

It's out of respect though. So what if it isn't that great; it isn't like they had a lot of time to prepare.

I dont know why I was expecting them to play the actual version. I was perplexed at the fact they chose this song, I'm not a fan
of their music but when I saw the video I was amazed. They turned a legendary party song into a soothing ballad.
It's good.

I don't think you all quite get it...

I'm pretty sure this arrangement was made on the night of his passing.

Plus, it's Coldplay. Of course they're gonna cover a track in a style that suits them and they're used to doing

Yeah this was a nice gesture, I hate the band as much as the next person but c'mon, chris martin doing rap vocals would be 1000 times more awkward.

He didn't need to sing. It's awkward and reeks of self-serving. RHCP played a tasteful vocal-less cover
of Whatcha Want. Kiedis could've rapped a bit of Beastie, but didn't, and for good reason.

This looks/sounds/is Chris Martin using the death as an opportunity to suck himself off in front of an
audience

They paid respects to him, who cares how it sounds? It's the thought that counts.

The arrangement wasn't made on the night. They played it at APW after the B-Boys pulled out. Jay-Z also did No Sleep Till Brooklyn in ultimately incredible fashion.
