Arcade Fire catapulted from “biggest band you never heard of” to household name status when they snagged the award for Album of the Year at the 2011 Grammys. The band was founded in 2001 by Win Butler and future wife Régine Chassagne. Butler’s brother, William, joined in 2003, making an already cozy situation even cozier. Eight years later, the familial gang is one of rock and roll’s brightest hopes. —Jeff Royer
