Arcade Fire SNL 2018

Watch Arcade Fire return to Saturday Night Live for their fifth appearance as they perform two songs from their 2017 album, Everything Now. First up is "Creature Comfort", with the band all decked out in sparkling gold suits. Their second performance is "Put Your Money On Me", which features lead singer Win Butler wandering amongst slot machines while the band is backed by anti-capitalist and anti-consumerist video projections. 

Fun fact: Arcade Fire have made five appearances on SNL, but only four were as the featured musical guest. In 2012, they served as Mick Jagger's backing band.
