Arcade Fire Performed a Nirvana Tribute in Washington State

Arcade Fire have been incorporating covers of different home-state bands throughout their Reflektor tour, from covering Chuck Berry in St. Louis to busting out a rendition of the Beverly Hills Cop theme during a show in L.A. The crowd-pleasing tactic continued at tonight's show in Washington, as the band paid tribute to Seattle grunge icons Nirvana by mixing lines from "Smells Like Teen Spirit" into a rendition of their track "Rococo."
