2004 : 34 "Wake Up" by the Arcade Fire

This band reminds me of Radiohead, in that there was a time before I heard this album and it was very different from the times ever since then. I had been reading a lot about bands like Linkin Park and Korn and this was the reassurance I needed that music could still make sense to me. I didn't want to be old, prim and square; I wanted to rock out to Arcade Fire and let it fill me with what I think of as an upending nostalgia for the present.
