Video: Arctic Monkeys - "Come Together" (Beatles Cover) (Live at the 2012 Summer Olympics)

Unlike my fellow white people, I could give less fucks about the Summer Olympics. Still, I feel obligated to give it some press and Britain's own Arctic Monkeys at least gave me a good reason. Hidden amidst the big budget nonsense of the opening ceremonies, a snarling Alex Turner led the Monkey's through a faithful cover of The Beatles' unity anthem "Come Together", accompanied by cyclists in glow-in-the-dark dove wings. Fast forward to the 2:50 mark to hear the song or watch the whole thing to also catch their performance of their 2005 breakthrough hit "I Bet You Look Good on the Dancefloor."
