Who Sang ‘Stand By Me’ at the End of ‘Fear the Walking Dead’? [VIDEO]

Fear the Walking Dead

At the end of Fear the Walking Dead‘s midseason finale, fans heard an unfamiliar cover for the familiar song, “Stand By Me.” The cover fit perfectly with the ending and made for a tense, emotional monologue at the end.

The cover is by Ki: Theory (aka Joe Burleson), a recording artist who specializes in alternative rock.

Here’s the full song:

There’s also an official music video for the song, which you can watch here:

Fans are saying that they absolutely loved the song. In fact, most fans loved everything about the midseason finale of Fear the Walking Dead. It was intense and had some big twists and turns (did anyone predict what happened with Ofelia?) The scene with Strand was also moving. And although we didn’t get to see Daniel Salazar, it’s going to be interesting to see how he reacts to learning about what Ofelia did, if he ever meets up with her again.

Do you think Ofelia will group up again with Madison, Nick and Alicia? Or is this the end of Ofelia’s role on the show? And what do you think will happen next? Will Madison take over the camp, or will they live in peace at the ranch with Walker and the other Native Americans? It’s hard to imagine how Troy especially is going to deal with what happened to his dad.

Bono has thanked Britain for “looking after the Irish” as U2 played to a packed Twickenham Stadium.

The rock star hailed London “capital of the world” as the band played the latest gig in The Joshua Tree tour, celebrating the album of the same name released 30 years ago.

He said the band were “boys” when they first came to the city and went on to reflect on Irish immigrants coming to Britain.

As green, white and orange Iights illuminated the stage, Bono described the scene as a “subliminal message from the motherland”.

He said: “We came to this great Great Britain and we thank you for looking after the Irish.”

Bono expressed thanks for the “safety” and “sanctuary” given, adding: “We hope that won’t stop.”

The band played for more than two hours and performed all the songs from The Joshua Tree album including With Or Without You and Where The Streets Have No Name, before belting out more recent hits such as Vertigo and Beautiful Day.

Released in March 1987, The Joshua Tree was drawn from U2’s relationship with the United States and beat Prince’s Sign O’ The Times to the best album prize at the 1988 Grammy Awards.

The band dedicated one of the last songs of their set – Ultraviolet – to murdered MP Jo Cox who was shot and stabbed on June 16 last year as she arrived for a constituency surgery in Birstall.

The mother-of-two had been elected as Labour MP for the Batley and Spen constituency just 13 months earlier.

Before the song, Bono said she lived her life “championing the lives of others”, adding: “Jo Cox, you light the way.”

For the last song, the band were joined on stage by Noel Gallagher for a rendition of Don’t Look Back In Anger.
