It’s impossible to cover each bit of new music that comes out during the week, so every Friday, we’ll be doing an end of the week music roundup. It’s called Final Track, and we’ll count off a few songs released during the week that are worth giving a listen to. (via Getty Image)

Today, we've got selections from Haim, Arcade Fire, and Nirvana.

"Wrecking Ball" by HAIM

This earnest cover of Miley Cyrus's "Wrecking Ball" proves that, yes, HAIM do indeed make everything better.

"Forgotten Tune" by Nirvana

One of the few "new" songs on Nirvana's In Utero reissue, "Forgotten Tune" is crude, ugly, and so, so good.

"Banger (MOSHPIT)" by ScHoolboy Q

For more, check out the Smoking Section.

"Games Without Frontiers" by Arcade Fire

Arcade Fire dust off Peter Gabriel's "Games Without Frontiers," repaying the favor the former-Genesis vocalist paid them when he covered their "My Body Is a Cage."

“Silent All These Years” by Twin Shadow

Speaking of covers: here's Twin Shadow making Tori Amos's “Silent All These Years” sound that much more gorgeous.

“Rude Customer” by Albert Hammond Jr.

The Strokes guitarist is off on his own, with a song...that sounds exactly like the Strokes. Not a bad thing.

“It’s Not Right But It’s Okay” by CHVRCHES

...and one more cover, this of CHVRCHES' very shiny take on Whitney Houston's “It’s Not Right But It’s Okay."
