Rome from 'Sublime' -- AMAZING Winehouse Tribute

7/25/2011 8:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Sublime's new frontman Rome was so moved when he heard about Amy Winehouse's passing ... he hit the recording studio and busted out a version of "Rehab" in her honor ... and it's AMAZING.

Wow! Great cover! I think it was a beautiful tribute Rome! I'm amazed at how incredibly judgmental and cruel people have been towards Amy...let's you know how the world truly is in today's times!! Maybe that's why we are such bad shape right now as a country!

In no way is Rome exploiting anyone or anything. The dude just put a video up on youtube. He didnt ask TMZ to put it on their front page. Ive never seen a video or interview of Rome where he seemed like some money hungry-attention whore. People need to get a ******* grip. Seems like people are always looking for a reason to hate on someone. Its easy to talk **** about people when youre posting from your mom's basement during jack off breaks.

First of all, kinda sad that TMZ gives platform to people like these that ride the wave of other famous people to try and get themselves famous. If you want to see renditions of Rehab from Amy Winehouse than just go to youtube and look um up...they have been there waaaaay before she died and people on there arent trying to make an extra bug the wrong way...

Secondly, Dude your rendition was awful. You can't have a dog roar pretending to be a lion....it just doesn't fit you well...It was weak and a poor interpretation of Amy's talent... Seriously TMZ take this video down from your site...It doesn't sit pretty...At least out of respect...for your site and Amy.

I thought it was great. Some people can't see the good in anything. And think no one could ever do something without a motive, we don't know Rome so lets not act like we do.

This beautiful.

For those of you who don't know much about Winehouse besides what was reported, she wasn't a strong person. She was smart, and very talented, but she was weak as a human being.

Watch any video of her trying to give an interview -- she's a wallflower. Timid and strange, she didn't have the ego to thumb her nose at drugs and relied on them as she was catapulted to fame. Health Ledger was another star who didn't have the 'star' personality and something similar happened to him.

The tribute of this song is the fact that almost all the words are changed to reflect the sadness and inevitability, as well as the fact that Winehouse resigned herself to her fate.
