Facebook Arcade Fire

They are the kind of songs that the less musically literate members of your party will tap you on the shoulder and ask “This song is pretty sweet, who sings it?”, making you feel pretty cool for busting out the hidden tunes. It can be cool to play bands with crazy names that few people have ever heard, but it is typically better to play the classic indie rock jams that everybody subconsciously recognizes from either a commercial, movie, or other media outlet that has featured it.
