Singing Hallelujah With The Fear In Your Heart

Few performances I’ve ever seen have been as palpably passionate as Arcade Fire’s performance of Intervention on Saturday Night Live in 2007.

You can visibly see the intensity on Win Butler’s face. Neon Bible is an album swirling with references to religion, corruption, family, darkness, and light. Who among us doesn’t brim with emotion as we wrestle with these ideas?

Stick around until the end to see Win smash the guitar and in a visceral way release the emotions we keep inside of us all the time.

May we all ‘smash our guitars.’
