Below check out versions by Rage Against the Machine, the Grateful Dead, Uncle Tupelo, The Residents, The Waterboys, Toots Hibbert, The Specials, U2, Richie Havens, Stephen Malkmus, the Charlie Daniels Band and Solomon Burke.

Plus a version by David Grisman, John Hartford and Mike Seeger.

Evolution Of A Bear: Panda Bear Meets the Grim Reaper, is the tentative title for the next Panda Bear solo album. Noah Lennox the new album is inspired by the work of 9th Wonder, the Chicago hip-hop producer whose influence informs the samples-and-beats approach that dominates the new tracks. “I feel like the overall theme of a lot of the songs as a group is change or evolution, mainly of people and what that process is like,” Lennox says. “Growth, I suppose.” — Under the Radar
