Arcade Fire covered The Clash's "I'm So Bored With The USA" at their show at London's Roundhouse last night [November 12].

This was the band's second show at the London venue: the band had also played the previous night [November 11], where they had covered Devo's "Uncontrollable Urge". You can watch footage of their Devo cover below.

The band - billed on tickets The Reflektors - had asked the audience to come wearing fancy dress. For their 90-minute set, the band played tracks from their fourth album, Reflektor, as well as material reaching back to their 2004 debut, Funeral.

Arcade Fire's set on November 12 was:

Flashbulb Eyes
Power Out
Joan Of Arc
You Already Know
We Exist
It's Never Over
Normal Person
I'm So Bored With The USA
Here Comes The Night Time

Sprawl II
