Cover Thursday: Trent Reznor, Atticus Ross and Karen O (Led Zeppelin)- Immigrant Song

I’m not a fan of the Yeah Yeah Yeah’s at all but this version of Led Zeppelin’s “Immigrant Song” is fantastic. The arrangement from Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross as well as the visuals from the opening sequence of The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo make this great.
