Phish’s live shows can be polarizing. Fans (ahem, “phans”) adore every moment while those of us less noodle-prone get lost around minute 57 of “You Enjoy Myself.” Everyone agrees they do a mean cover though. Know for their Halloween full-album sets – most recently Exile on Main St. – the band spent the first leg of their summer tour debuting tons of new covers, almost a new one with every stop.

The jaunt wrapped up on Sunday so we’ve rounded up these first-time covers. Lots of classic rock (Led Zeppelin, John Lennon) with a few curveballs thrown in (Neutral Milk Hotel, Rage Against the Machine). Stream and download them all below.
