Over the last year, Arcade Fire have began to transform themselves into the world's greatest functions band, sneaking covers of some of their favourite artists into sets while on the road. From Stevie Wonder classic 'Signed, Sealed, Delivered' to snippets of Aerosmith, and New Order to Prince's 'Controversy', they're cover crazy at the moment. In fact, you can now assemble an entire double album of tracks the Montreal band have put their own spin on - so we did just that. Here's the 100% unofficial DIY patchwork Arcade Fire covers record, pieced together from YouTube and Soundcloud clips.
