oh, shut up.
I’ll second that it seems just a little dishonest to say Arcade Fire ‘diss the kardashians’ when Win was just saying that it is hard to make an honest record popular in a time when most popular things lack in compassion. He references Søren Kierkegaard’s present age philosophy and how it correlates to today. From Wikipedia:
“The present age is one of understanding, of Reflection, devoid of passion, an age which flies into enthusiasm for a moment only to decline back into indolence. … Action and passion is as absent in the present age as peril is absent from swimming in shallow waters.”
—Kierkegaard, Søren, Two Ages: A Literary Review

Who the hell is Wolf?
We Only Come Out At Night
I’ll move my family out the country
So you can’t see where I stay
So go and grab the reporters
So I can smash their recorders
