Watch Arcade Fire Cover R.E.M.'s "Radio Free Europe"

During most of the stops on the Reflektor tour, Arcade Fire take some time out of their encore to cover a song from an artist that’s native to whatever state they’re playing. In Ohio, they covered Devo; in Philadelphia, they took on Boyz II Men’s “Motown Philly”; in St. Louis it was Chuck Berry and in Kansas City they played Kansas. The latest artist to be graced with a cover was R.E.M. when the band performed “Radio Free Europe” last night at their Atlanta show. According to a local report, they also paid homage to Outkast with a slowed-down recording of “Hey Ya” during the fake-out encore. You can watch a fan video of Arcade Fire’s take on R.E.M. below.
