10. Arcade Fire
Arcade Fire were born very early in the 21st century when Win Butler and Josh Deu started playing music together at Montreal's Concordia University. They met Régine Chassagne at nearby McGill University and pretty soon, they were writing future classics like "No Cars Go" and "Wake Up." Their rise was meteoric and before they knew it, they were sharing stages with the likes of David Bowie and Bruce Springsteen, and headlining festivals and arenas all over the globe. Butler was born in Texas, but Chassagne and most of the other members were born in Canada and they continue to spend much of their time up there.
