Arcade Fire performed in London tonight and they brought Pulp’s Jarvis Cocker up on stage to perform his song “Cunts Are Still Running the World,” a song from his 2006-released debut solo album Jarvis (it was also featured during the closing credits of Children of Men). Cocker pointed out that the song was written 20 years ago, adding, “You’d hope it’d be very irrelevant now, but unfortunately…that’s not the case.” Watch fan video of the performance below (via Pitchfork).

On Wednesday night Arcade Fire did a cover of The Pretenders’ “Don’t Get Me Wrong” featuring The Pretenders’ Chrissie Hynde.

Arcade Fire’s latest album, Everything Now, was released last July via Columbia. Read our review of Everything Now.
