Arcade Fire

How did Arcade Fire get the band name idea - Brighton pier burningIndie rock band from Montreal, Quebec.

As a small boy a friend of singer Win Butler deceived him into believing that a shopping center and a bandstand in Exeter (New Hampshire) had been burned to the ground, resulting in many (especially young) victims.

As far as can be ascertained a nonsense story, but the 'shopping center inferno' impressed Butler so much that the band name was the outcome.
