The only immediate similarities between American Football and orchestral rockers Arcade Fire is the ability to fill out stadiums and vague connotations of high school marching band. I mean, does Canada even have football? That’s probably a really ignorant Southern Hemisphere question to ask. Of course not. They just all play Ice Hockey don’t they – or Tundra-Death-Match as we call it in Australia.
Anyway, come Super Bowl Sunday worlds will collide! Yes, skinny jeans will meet Creatine as Arcade Fire’s most anthemic cut, Wake Up, will soundtrack gargantuan men groping each other instead of gargantuan monsters groping each other. As we’ve previously reported Arcade Fire’s Regine Chassagne has Haitian roots and all proceeds from the track’s licensing will go to Haiti relief fund Partners in Health.
