Arcade Fire has gone from indie favorite to a stadium-rocking, Grammy-winning powerhouse in the rock world. Six years ago, the lead song to a big movie soundtrack might seem like a stretch, but today it's an obvious move. "Abraham's Daughter" is the dramatic cut Arcade Fire contributed to the Hunger Games soundtrack. Here's what frontman Win Butler said to Entertainment Weekly:

“I tried to put myself in the headspace of how excited I’d be if this film was coming out when I was 15. I still remember hearing Radiohead’s ‘Exit Music (for a Film)’ in [Baz Luhrmann’s] Romeo + Juliet when I was that age.”

“Our whole approach was to get into the world and try to create something that serves the story and the film,” he continued. ”There’s something in the story of Abraham and Isaac that I think resonates with the themes in the film, like sacrificing children. So we made a weird, apocryphal, alternate-universe version of that, where it’s as if Abraham had a daughter — kind of a metaphor for Katniss.”
