The Arctic Monkeys paid tribute to the band that started the British Invasion 50 years ago by performing a slowed down and steamy version of the Beatles' "All My Loving" at Madison Square Garden in New York this past weekend.

Since Sunday, Feb. 9 marked the 50th anniversary of the Beatles performing on the Ed Sullivan Show, tributes were pouring in from all over, including a Grammy salute with Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr and "Beatles Week" on the Late Show with David Letterman. For us, though, seeing a young British band performing the song that started it all to a "really big" American audience seems like the most appropriate of them all.
