Watch Arcade Fire cover the 'Beverly Hills Cop' theme

New, 10 comments

A lot of music has been made since "Axel F" — the relentlessly cool electronic jam from Beverly Hills Cop — was first played, and yet very little of that music has reached the level of total sweetness that it manages to hit in just seconds. But finally, there's something better than just playing Harold Faltermeyer's classic track on repeat again: you can now listen to a cover of "Axel F" from Arcade Fire. The band played part of the track in LA over the weekend, switching from "Axel F" into their own song "Normal Person." The intro to "Welcome to the Jungle" also makes its way in there at the end of the video.
