While recording at Electric Lady Studios for the Spotify Singles series, LCD Soundsystem just couldn't help but spend a little more time to knock out a jittery cover of British synth-pop band Heaven 17's "(We Don't Need This) Fascist Groove Thang." The original single was first released in 1981 and was banned by the BBC for libeling then-U.S. President Ronald Reagan.
