Arcade Fire: DNA

34 years ago this week, Win Butler of Arcade Fire was born in the sleepy Sierra Nevada mountain town of Truckee, California. His travels took him to Texas, New Hampshire, New York and finally Montreal, where he met his future wife Regine Chassagne and formed the genesis of what would become Arcade Fire. They’ve gone on to become one of the most critically beloved modern acts, from Manhattan to Coachella, and from the NPR crowd to the Hot Topic constituency. They’ve done this, won a Grammy, and sold millions of records without compromising their art. And that’s why they are such an interesting subject for the latest installment of Slacker’s DNA series. On this station, we explore Arcade Fire’s musical DNA—their own music along with their influences, friends, family, collaborators, and followers. This is Arcade Fire: DNA.


Garth Brooks: DNA

25 years ago, Garth Brooks released his first album, and your Slacker curators we are taking this opportunity to feature him in our latest edition of Slacker: DNA. When you talk about Garth Brooks’ musical DNA, you’re really talking about his family. Garth says “Growing up the last of six kids, music was the life blood of our family and as you can imagine, mom, dad, and each kid had his or her own favorite stuff and it all funneled down to me." During his wildly popular Las Vegas show, he was very clear about his musical family tree: He learned about classic country like Merle Haggard and George Jones from his father, he learned to love classic soul and R&B like Marvin Gaye and Otis Redding from his mother, and his older siblings turned him on to 70s rock. That makes our job easy. Here we have created a station that explores Garth Brooks’ musical family tree—his influences, his hits, his friends, family, and collaborations, and his legacy. You can blame it all on his roots--This is Garth Brooks: DNA, on Slacker Radio.


Pharrell: DNA

From his beginnings on 1992’s summer jam “Rump Shaker” by Wreckx-N-Effect to his 7 Grammy wins and Oscar nomination, Pharrell Williams is one of the most talented and prolific renaissance men in recent music history.

In celebration of his music and legacy, your Slacker curators have put together a comprehensive look at his musical DNA: from his recent solo hits to his work as part of The Neptunes and N.E.R.D., to his signature production work with Jay-Z, Daft Punk, Robin Thicke, Clipse, and even Gwen Stefani. This is Pharrell Williams: DNA!


Kenny Chesney: DNA

This week, Kenny Chesney celebrates his 46th birthday. To celebrate, your Slacker curators have put together a station that features his biggest hits, collaborations, influences, friends, and kindred spirits. Whether you are a dedicated member of the No Shoes Nation, or a casual fan, this station is a musical exploration of one of the biggest country super stars in the world—with 14 gold albums, 30 top 10 singles, 30 million albums sold, and one of the most dedicated fanbases in all of music. Kick back with some of Kenny’s Blue Chair Bay Rum and explore his musical family tree with us: this is Kenny Chesney: DNA


Adam Levine: DNA

Carrie Underwood: DNA

Welcome to another edition of Slacker’s “DNA” series—where we present you with a curated retrospective of an artist’s key tracks, collaborations, influences, and connections—their musical DNA.

This week, Carrie will celebrate her 31st birthday and we've assembled a station that features not only her biggest hits, but her entire musical family tree. This is Carrie Underwood: DNA.


Metallica: DNA

Welcome to another installment in our DNA series. On this station, we explore the musical DNA of the greatest Metal band of all time- Metallica. They took elements of 70s heavy metal and 80s punk rock, and created one of the most confrontational and aggressive sounds in modern music—today we call it Thrash Metal. It started as an underground movement, but it became one of the most unlikely mainstream phenomenon of the 80s, 90s, and beyond. With 9 albums, 9 Grammy awards, and over 110 million albums sold worldwide, Metallica is not only one of the greatest acts of all time, but one of the most successful. On this station you’ll hear all eras of Metallica, their collaborations with Lou Reed and the San Francisco Philharmonic, the bands in their family tree like Exodus and Flotsam & Jetsam, their influences like Motorhead and Black Sabbath, and the many bands that followed, like System of a Down and Avenged Sevenfold.
