Arcade Fire, on their current tour, are starting to adapt the practice of playing locally significant covers in different towns (see: “Dust In The Wind” in Kansas City), and St. Louis is the home to rock and roll originator Chuck Berry. So it’s only right that the band played a Berry song — a honking, bar-rocking rendition of “Roll Over Beethoven” while they were playing St. Louis’s Chaifetz Arena last night. At the same show, as Consequence Of Sound reports, they advanced their beef with Deadmau5, showing an image of the EDM producer (along with former congressman Todd Akin) on a digital mask during their song “Normal Person,” the one where they ask if you remember rock and roll music. Watch a fan-made video of the Chuck Berry cover and the Deadmau5 dis below.

Honestly, though, would it have killed them to do “Hot In Herre” instead?

  1. I’m not buying part of the basis for this whole feud. Deadau5 is upset, because Arcade Fire supposedly mocked Daft Punk on stage? I really doubt they meant their spoof to be malicious. Daft Punk is an obvious influence on Reflektor. Their album was produced by James “Daft-Punk-is-playing-at-my-house” Murphy. They probably know Daft Punk. I mean, come on.

  2. can we just round up the covers at the end of the insanely long tour they are doing? or maybe a “top 5 arcade fire covers of the week” on Friday? no? a new article with a new cover every day? ok then.
