Better Than: A no-hit wonder.

"Pumped Up Kicks" is such a good fucking song.

It's cool and catchy and inspires people to use their Shazam app when they hear it on a TV show or at a bar. Modern technology will tell you it is a song by Foster the People, an L.A. band that made its Miami debut at the Fillmore Miami Beach last night.

And if you knew this group only by that one impossibly great hit, you could not help but be disappointed by the 13-song set.
