Arcade Fire Is Ready for Some Football

Attention, indie-rock fans who love football and have an anachronistic hatred of sellouts: Refrain from clucking disapprovingly when you hear Arcade Fire’s “Wake Up” blasting during the Super Bowl this Sunday, because all proceeds of the band’s licensing of the song are going to Partners in Health's Stand With Haiti relief efforts. Making the move more personal is that the band’s Régine Chassagne has Haitian roots, which are referenced on the Funeral song “Haiti.” Now who’s excited to hear “Wake Up” during the Super Bowl?!?
