There are too many Arcade Fire covers to list here anymore, but if you haven’t heard by now that the band is covering a song from a local artist at each show, you must not be visiting very often. The latest stop on their world tour was in George, Washington and, of course, the band paid tribute to Nirvana. Win Butler did a few lines from “Smells Like Teen Spirit” during the intro and outro of “Rococo.” He didn’t play the full track, but the crowd got pretty excited to hear the nod to their hometown (well, nearby anyway) heroes.
