Arcade Fire Cover Dead Kennedys in Concert

Subscribe to on

Arcade Fire are giving Jack White a run for the cover-playing money.

While White has been busy paying homage to everyone from Metallica (‘Enter Sandman‘) to Jay-Z (‘99 Problems‘), indie-rock royalty Arcade Fire have been treating audiences to their own renditions of Jane’s Addiction‘s ‘Been Caught Stealing‘ and the theme from ‘Beverly Hills Cop.’

Fans at the band’s show last night in Santa Barbara, Calif., were privy to perhaps the band’s most surreal cover yet: Dead Kennedys‘ 1979 anti-anthem ‘California Uber Alles’ (while wearing their papier mache bobblehead costumes). Watch a clip from Arcade Fire’s version above and listen to the original below.
