Radiohead, Pyramid Song, covered by Sybarite5 in an arrangement by Paul Kim.
See also, especially if you know the original well, their version of Packt Like Sardines in a Crushd Tin Box.

I think many of the attempts to "classicalize" popular music fall flat (e.g., the London Philharmonic's symphonic Led Zeppelin). They turn into a weird hybrid elevator-music sound that lacks the passion and energy of either rock or classical.
But I'm a sucker for the 2cellos version of Alien Ant Farm's cover of Smooth Criminal:
Mischa Maisky also does an incredible job covering classical songs as duets for cello and piano.
