(CBS NEWS) – “Let it Go” goes rock? Pearl Jam brought some grunge to the hit Disney song during a concert at San Siro Stadium in Milan, Italy, on Friday. Now, the footage from the concert has gone viral on YouTube with over 1.3 million views.
Frontman Eddie Vedder belted out the track, originally performed by Idina Menzel in “Frozen.” Menzel voiced Queen Elsa in last year’s animated hit, which has become the fifth highest-grossing film of all time.
“Let it Go” won the Academy Award for best original song earlier this year and has become a both a radio hit and a hit among children.
“I apologize to everyone out there — to all the parents children are making them play it,” Menzel joked with CBS News.
Perhaps Vedder is one of them? After all, he does have two young girls of his own.
