Of Montreal with MGMT

Of Montreal teamed up with members of MGMT for this very well executed cover of "Teen Spirit" during the encore of a show in New York City in October of 2008. If you watch the audience's response, you get a sense of why so many different acts put the song in their show – the song has a primal power that causes people to totally flip out. The crowd at this gig at Manhattan's cavernous Roseland Ballroom respond to the song as if they are actually watching a resurrected Kurt Cobain.
