August 8, 2012 2:45 pm

Just when you thought a cappella was reserved for middle-aged men in pinstripe suits and barber shops, Pentatonix turns right back around with another killer vocal cover on YouTube. Pentatonix is the Season 3 winner of NBC‘s “The Sing-Off” and the band consists of five members who perform pop, electric, and dubstep style songs sans instrumentation. Scott Hoying, Kirstie Maldonado, Mitch Grassie, Avi Kaplan, and Kevin Olusola have set out to disprove the stereotype that a cappella is outdated and wish to make a mainstream comeback with the genre.
