Arcade Fire is a Canadian, Pitchfork-approved indie rock group, fronted by Hitler youth Win Butler and his silver-tongued concubine (oh là là), Régine Chassagne. They formed in 2001, and came into the picture with their critically acclaimed debut record, Funeral. This record revolutionized the lives of many a fat teenage girl, all of whom were blown away by its generic baroque pop sound. Their success paved the way for other would-be "mainstream indie" groups, such as Of Monsters and Men, Mumford and Sons, Gotye and fun.. In 2011, they won a Grammy award for Album of the Year for their record The Suburbs, forever proving that "indie" is a garbage disposable term with no real meaning.
