There are so many good songs out there that make us want to sing along...or make our own version of it. When another artist takes a song and performs it themselves, it's called a cover. This particular group - known as Walk Off The Earth - did a cover of Gotye's Somebody That I Used To Know. While some covers sound very similar to the original, there are other artists that like to make the song their own and add their own effects. The use of one guitar between 5 people and great vocals on a popular song are what made this performance so highly rated.

What is Sussle?

Sussle is the first, open visual encyclopedia. Anyone can use it.

What's a visual encylopedia?

It has beautiful images and viral videos that are way more fun than reading all the text in traditional encyclopedias.

5 reasons you should add your own images and videos:

  1. If you found Sussle interesting, then give back by adding something interesting for others.
  2. Help others learn in a fun way.
  3. Make someone else interested in this topic laugh or say wow!
  4. Become internet-famous as people like and share your post.
  5. It's super easy, so it won't take more than a minute.
