Pearl Jam and Arcade Fire's Win Butler Cover Neil Young

(Radio.com) While Down Under for the final Big Day Out festival, Pearl Jam decided to once again cover Neil Young's "Rockin' In The Free World." But this time around, the band invited their basketball buddy, Arcade Fire's Win Butler out to lend a hand.

The wobbly fan-shot clip from the Perth gig, shows the two guys side by side screaming lines like "There's colors on the street/Red, white and blue" and "There's a lot of people sayin'/We'd be better off dead."

Butler takes on the second verse while Vedder double-fisted tambourines to scream along, just like the fans did throughout. American or Australian, everyone wants to keep rockin' in the free world.

Soon Vedder was getting on top of the speakers-tambourine still in each hand-to get the crowd amped up, which was reportedly smaller than previous years. He even offered up one of his tambourines to an overzealous fan in the front row to help him keep the beat. Watch the video here.
