'Sidewinder' ... Air Force band members rock YouTube

SIDEWINDER, Air Force military band members home from deployment in Afghanistan, are a YouTube sensation with their cover of Adele's "Rolling in the Deep" with almost 2 million hits so far. It was an impromptu concert for their fellow troops in thanks for cargo-loading their gear but someone filmed it and posted to YouTube where it exploded onto the blogosphere:
