Vitamin String Quartet


Have you ever wondered what Mozart would compose, were he modern musician? Look no further than the Vitamin String Quartet. Self-described as being "about applying rock n' roll attitude to classic technique," VSQ has covered over 100 separate albums by popular artists such as: Daft Punk, Bob Dylan, The Clash, Dragonforce, Elliot Smith, Foo Fighters, Jimi Hendrix, Korn, Led Zeppelin, Queen, and many, many, MANY more. With a diverse catalog, VSQ brings a literal army of classically trained musicians to reach out into the depths of the music scene. Even for those who do not possess an air for classical music, one must be impressed with the skills this collective group possess to transform such genre defining songs into something completely new.

I highly recommend you open up RainyMood while listening to the following song and, indeed, all of VSQ's discography: it takes the music to an entirely different level.
