In their concert film Rattle and Hum, Bono introduces U2‘s live cover of “Helter Skelter” by declaiming, “This is a song Charles Manson stole from the Beatles. We’re stealing it back.” Fighting words!

“Sweet Dreams” is a song Marilyn Manson stole from Eurythmics. At a recent New York concert, the adorably-titled rock/soul group Fitz and the Tantrums (the singer is named Michael Fitzpatrick) steal it back. They come armed with a jauntily-hatted saxman, a sexy dancer/hypewoman/tambourinist and a frontman with a haircut that could slice butter. Do they succeed? Judge for yourself below.
