1. Arcade Fire, “Kiss Off” (Violent Femmes cover)
Now that In Rainbows has rendered these Canadians merely the second most important band on the planet, they retaliate with this angsty cover. [Music Slut]

2. Cold War Kids, “I Don’t Want to Grow Up” (Tom Waits cover)
The blog band cover the Bone Machine track, tolerably. [Music Slut]

3. The Kooks, “All That She Wants” (Ace of Base cover)
All kidding aside, this is actually pretty great. [Fuel Friends]

4. Daft Punk, “Too Long/Steam Machine” (live)
A brand-new song by our all-time favorite pyramid-inhabiting robot duo. [Culture Bully]

5. Colin Meloy, “Every Day Is Like Sunday” (Smiths cover)
We never would’ve taken the super-fey, hyperliterate Decemberists front man for a Smiths fan, but we stand corrected. [Captain Obvious]
