There’s a semi-metal version by Matt Heafy from the band Trivium.

And here’s a pretty unique take by London’s Hackney Colliery Band.
You want electronic? Here’s your electronic, courtesy of Dutch musician Legowelt.

You’ll get a similar vibe from this version, played on outdated computer parts.
And this list just wouldn’t be complete without an a cappella jam, would it?
