WATCH: The Coronas and friends perform a spine-tingling, social distancing version of ‘A Real Hero’

The Coronas have rallied together their friends for a virtual rendition of ‘A Real Hero’ 


It’s 10 years since College and Electric Youth released ‘A Real Hero’. The electro-pop anthem became the theme song of the cult film Drive and part of what is arguably one of the best movie soundtracks of all time.

The Coronas performed a spine-tingling acoustic version of ‘A Real Hero’ on FM104 back in 2012.

Now, “to create something a bit different while in isolation”, they’ve gathered together a group of their talented friends to perform a social distancing cover of the song. Enjoy.
