∙ The group performed their pulsating New Wave single “Dead Disco” in the acclaimed 2004 French film Clean.
Live It Out, their sophomore album, featured the punky single “Monster Hospital,” which was included on NME’s list of 2006’s Tracks of the Year.
∙ Metric’s album Fantasies debuted at No. 1 on Billboard’s Heatseekers Albums chart in 2009.
∙ Future Academy Award-winner Brie Larson—playing a character inspired by Metric frontwoman Emily Haines—sang their song “Black Sheep” in the 2010 comedy Scott Pilgrim vs. the World.
∙ Rock legend Lou Reed sang the chorus on the bubbly 2012 pop track “The Wanderlust” from Metric’s biggest album, Synthetica.
∙ 2012’s “Youth Without Youth” was the first single ever to debut at No. 1 on the Canadian alternative-rock charts, and it stayed there for a record 16 weeks.
