Ultimate Helter Skelter

So, there were the Killers, right? And the Vines. And the Howling Bells. And Louis XIV. All on stage. All doing a cover of the Beatles' "Helter Skelter". Whether or not it compares to the original is irrelevant. The point here isn't for the music to sound good (though it doesn't sound bad) but to just be the biggest, most intense spectacle possible.

And they succeed.

That stage is so crowded with artists, halfway through I was expecting the song to shift to "The Ultimate Showdown (of Ultimate Destiny)" by Lemon Demon and Chuck Norris to roundhouse kick Craig Nicholls in the head.
