Awesome: Arcade Fire

  • "My Body is a Cage" begins as a very quiet, almost lo-fi song. Halfway through, the church organs come in, and it is glorious.
  • "Intervention" may be an angry, scathing song about religion being misused by warmongers, but it's pretty much impossible to to listen to without feeling incredibly pumped-up and energetic.
  • Winning a Grammy Award.
  • Their song "Wake Up" (which in and of itself is a Crowning Music of Awesome) was used in advertisements for the 2010 Super Bowl, which naturally earned them a lot of royalties. Since one of the members of the band is Haitian, the group decided that they would donate every penny earned from the ads to relief efforts.
