The Oils don't play Instant Karma that often but have done it at least a
handful of time (3 that I can think of in NY alone).

We Gotta Get Outta This Place has to be the coolest cover they do. They
should have released the MTV Unplugged version of it on TRT album. They have
done this live electric before as well dating back to 83 for sure.

They have done Political World by Dylan before and someone said they were
doing Neil Young's Keep on Rockin' in the Free World on the fall tour.

Telstar is also technically a cover that they have done several times.
