This week, Arcade Fire and LCD Soundsystem kicked off a highly anticipated joint national tour. Rock Daily caught up with frontmen Win Butler and James Murphy at Austin City Limits to find out how the two bands teamed up (apparently Arcade Fire asked LCD to the prom, and Murphy is praying for a wrist corsage) and whether they'll be playing together onstage ("I don't know that they need any more," laments Murphy). Watch the pair gush about each other's bands, talk about their cell phone communication breakdowns and more by clicking above on our exclusive video.

“Road to Nowhere”

Talking Heads | 1985

A cappella harmonies give way to an a fuller arrangement blending pop and electro-disco on "Road to Nowhere," but the theme remains constant: We're on an eternal journey to an undefined destination. The song vaulted back into the news a quarter century after it was a hit when Gov. Charlie Crist used it in his unsuccessful 2010 campaign for the U.S. Senate in Florida. "It's this little ditty about how there's no order and no plan and no scheme to life and death and it doesn't mean anything, but it's all right," Byrne said with a chuckle.
