Trampled by Turtles stopped by the Onion A.V. Club's office to continue a series of somewhat unpredictable cover pairings called... Undercover. Their song of choice: Arcade Fire's oft-forgotten "Rebellion (Lies)" from the band's debut album, Funeral

According to frontman Dave Simonett, who is quite comfortable trying on other bands' material, this is a song they wanted to cover anyway. And given the abundance of strings in Arcade Fire's arrangements, it's not too much of a stretch to goose the song up with bluegrass stylings.

For the most part, TBT stay pretty true to the original, but kicking the violin solo over to mandolin to close things out is a definite game-changer. Solid work.
