Arcade Fire's "Reflektor" tour continued in George, WA, and the band kept with its newly adopted tradition of covering a song by a local band. Known Nirvana fan, Win Butler took advantage of the Pacific Northwest venue and played a few lines of "Smells Like Teen Spirit" during the intro and final chords of Arcade Fire's "Rococo." It's by no means a full cover of the iconic song, since you can hear "Entertain us" bleed seamlessly into "Rococo." The last few bars, however, are more recognizable, as Butler sings, "I feel stupid and contagious. Here we are now, entertain us."

The band has previously paid similar tribute to the Dead Kennedys in Santa Barbara, Jane's Addiction in Los Angeles, R.E.M. in Atlanta and The Smiths in London. See the fan-shot footage of the show below.
