    Architecture in Helsinki covered a Prince song. I am not 100% sure now, but I think it was Purple Rain.

    And they also covered Matthew Wilder's Break My Stride.

    Unless this is snarky joke - I don't think it counts. It's more like Avey and Geologist played backing band for a song.

    About half of Dwight Yoakam's set was devoted to covers... of Buck Owens ('Act Naturally' and 'Streets of Bakersfield'), Elvis Presley ('Little Sister'), Johnny Cash ('Ring of Fire'), Ricky Nelson ('Garden Party') and the Eagles ('Peaceful Easy Feeling')
