Extreme's 1990 acoustic ballad “More Than Words” was a change from the group’s usual pop-funk-glam hybrid, but it was also a huge hit that brought the band fame.
Granted, it was a little “soft” for fans of the group’s standard fare, but even if you thought it was cheesy, you might like the video below. It's a remake of the original “More Than Words” video featuring Jack Black and Jimmy Fallon, who stand in for singer Gary Cherone and guitarist Nuno Bettencourt. And it’s a shot-for-shot match, right down to the Mesa/Boogie amp in the opening.
We've included the new and original versions of the video below so you can compare them.
