Arcade Fire were the stars of the Terry Gilliam-directed first installment of American Express, VEVO, and YouTube’s five-part UNSTAGED series. They show up in this new edition, too, via John Legend & The Roots’ cover of “Wake Up.” It took place at Terminal 5, NYC. Spike Lee directed.

Watch more of the set at YouTube.

  1. Directed by Spike Lee, eh? That explains the racial undertones.

  2. Man, I am so excited to see them at House of Blues Chicago in February… it’s going to be INSANE.

  3. the irony is, by making a soul cover this song has lost all it’s soul!

  4. I believe you meant ‘faux soul’ plumsoul :)

    John Legend? maybe in his own world.

  5. I think it’s awful

  6. It’s absolute garbage. Whether you want to call it a soul cover or whatever else you like, it’s tarnished the original.

  7. I couldn’t get the download to work.

  8. Is Chief Houserocker good or does he suck?
