Ummm. No, they're not.

 

Yes, Win Butler was raised in The Woodlands, but that doesn't make the band Texan. He founded the band in Montreal, and the other members (with the exception being, of course, Win's brother Will) are Canadian (or, in Sarah's case, British Columbian). That's why they're referred to as a Canadian band.

Texas refuses to relinquish the rights to the Butlers. See how many songs they get without them. :P

I love Regine to bits. She was the reason I gave Arcade Fire a second chance and, consequently, the catalyst which caused me to love them. :wacky:

 

Question: Does Owen still do stuff for Arcade Fire, or is he just releasing solo stuff under his name?

Yeah, so Texas boy loved Houston so much that he ran off to Canada- another country, to Montreal- which is French, married a French Canadian girl from Hati, started an art rock band with a bunch of Canadian kids, and made a career writing songs about how much he wanted to get out of Houston and everything that's wrong with it and how he's glad he's gone and how it still haunts him.

 

Texas boy may be from Texas, but he sure isn't the sort your tourism people would want anything to do with. I have no desire to go anywhere near Houston any time soon. Actually, he fits in perfectly up here- he's like a second generation draft dodger.

^ Origin of a band is so pointless to me. I relate so strongly to bands from other countries you would have thought the story they were telling was my own. In fact, it is - it's just humans sharing their feelings and life experiences, and we can all relate to that. When we talk about bands transcending other cultures, that's exactly what's going on. I don't really care what side of a border or ocean they fall on.

it's funny you mention that... because I was wondering if Arcade Fire would be considered a Canadian band if members were originally from other countries... but I guess they would be from Canada if that's where the band was born.
