Having paid tribute to David Bowie last weekend, Coachella headliners LCD Soundsystem had to unfortunately followup on it and pay tribute this week to the late Prince, who passed at the age of 57 this week. Early on in their set the band decided to cover Prince’s “Controversy,” perfectly suited as an LCD Soundsystem song.
