"Truth be told, I'd never heard anything by them," Chambers said of Macklemore and Ryan Lewis, a recent breakout rap duo from Seattle.But almost a year later, Rolling Stone magazine named the cover as one of the "10 Mind-Blowing College Marching Band Cover Songs," alongside songs like "Gangnam Style" by Psy and "Blurred Lines" by Robin Thicke/Elizabeth Rudd, Lewiston Tribune.
