Here's one reason to give Daft Punk's overplayed "Get Lucky" one more listen: The Russian Police Choir covered the Grammy-gobbling song during the Opening Ceremony at the Sochi Olympics. To see dozens of uniformed men sing the runaway hit from last year's Random Access Memories (with dashes of choreography sprinkled throughout!), watch the footage over at NBC. But heed our warning: Just like the helmet-less photos of Daft Punk at the airport, you can't un-see this.

We should've known the official death knell for the Best Song of 2013 was coming, though. Footage of the Russian Police Choir covering "Get Lucky" made the rounds online last year. Find that clip below.
