  • Arcade Fire's first album, Funeral, brought them critical recognition and commercial success. The album charted on the Billboard 200 and appeared on many year-end critic's lists. The album's singles, such as "Rebellion (Lies)," helped build the band a strong following.
  • The Suburbs won Arcade Fire their first career GRAMMY win for Album Of The Year for 2010. The band celebrated its victory by making their GRAMMY stage debut at the 53rd GRAMMY Awards in 2011 with "Month Of May" and "Ready To Start."
