Arcade Fire are selling their own version of those Kylie and Kendall Jenner t-shirts

They were hastily made in time for the band's UK tour dates

The Jenners plastered their faces over images of iconic artists, so Arcade Fire have plastered their logo over the Jenners.

At the first of the band's London shows, NME's Thomas Smith spotted a stencil of Kylie's face on a $25 t-shirt (proceeds going to charity) with the new Everything Now symbol over the top.

It's quite a fitting stunt for Arcade Fire, whose social media for their new album has taken on a sarcastic pro-capitalist tone of late.

Kylie and Kendall's original t-shirts saw a huge backlash, with one featuring Ozzy Osbourne leading to his wife Sharon tweeting: "Girls, you haven’t earned the right to put your face with musical icons. Stick to what you know…lip gloss."

Kendall, who's had a lousy year that also involved the Pepsi ad furore, eventually responded: "These designs were not well thought out and we deeply apologize to anyone that has been upset and/or offended, especially to the families of the artists.

"We are huge fans of their music and it was not our intention to disrespect these cultural icons in anyway.

"The t-shirts have been pulled from retail and all images have been removed. We will use this as an opportunity to learn from these mistakes and again, we are very sorry."
