SOCHI, Russia (AP) — Chances are you’ve heard the Grammy-winning song “Get Lucky.”

But chances are you have never heard the Daft Punk song the way some people did at the Olympics.

During Friday’s opening ceremonies in Sochi, Russia, the Red Army Choir MVD performed “Get Lucky.”

And it wasn’t the only Daft Punk “appearance” at the games so far. A couple of days later, an organist thumped out the song at the arena where the Norway men’s hockey team was practicing.

And hip-hop is getting some love in the ice and snow, too. As fans entered the snowboarding slopestyle course on Saturday, they heard an instrumental version of Ice T’s old-school hip-hop tune, “New Jack Hustler.”
