I remember hearing 30 Seconds to Mars (Jared Leto's alternative rock band) back around 2001 and 2002. They sounded kinda like a mix of alternative rock, progressive rock, and space rock with some metal thrown in. I remember liking the two radio hits they had (Capricorn and Edge of the Earth). I never heard anything after their first album, but I just stumbled across this BBC radio session of them doing a cover of Lady Gaga's Bad Romance. Kinda reminds me of how Faith No More did a cover of Poker Face, but this cover here actually works pretty well.

That's quite an awesome version of that song. I had their first album and really loved a few of the tracks, but they got more boring to me as they "matured" as a band. Nevertheless, I still really love some of the stuff from the first record.
