Foster the People - Pumped Up Kicks

"Pumped Up Kicks" is the lead single by American indie pop group Foster the People from their debut album Torches. The song received airplay on modern rock stations soon after its release on September 14, 2010, and began seeing noticeable airplay on contemporary hit radio stations the following summer (2011). It has peaked at number three on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100, making it the first Alternative Song to crack the U.S. top 5 since Kings of Leon's "Use Somebody" in 2009.
