PWR BTTM slowed things down from their normal raucousness for a solo take on the Wizard of Oz, Judy Garland sung classic "Somewhere Over The Rainbow" during a tour stop in Orlando last week. As singer Ben Hopkins explains in the video above, the band has added the song to their set horrific mass shooting at the gay nightclub, Pulse. Before starting the song singer Ben Hopkins says that to him, the song is about "queer space and being surrounded by those who want the best for you." He then dedicated the track to all those who were effected by the Pulse shooting. From the first notes, the cover becomes a crowd sing-along.
