Watch Arcade Fire Cover Devo's "Uncontrollable Urge"

We first found out last year that members of Arcade Fire were big Devo fans when they performed “Uncontrollable Urge” at the Crossing Brooklyn Ferry music festival.

Last night, the entire band once again performed the track from Devo’s 1978 debut album Q: Are We Not Men? A: We Are Devo! at the Hollywood Palladium in Los Angeles, with Win Butler donning his giant Halloween mask. Despite the limitations of what must’ve been a heavy and completely inconvenient mask, Butler seemed to handle himself just fine. You can check out the live concert video above.
