Now, I have known about Arcade Fire for quite a while now, but that was only because I liked Wake Up. I’m sure this was the case for many people. I guess I assumed it was their one good song. Boy, was I wrong! I finally gave Funeral a listen and was completely blown away. This was followed by Neon Bible and then The Suburbs. This really wasn’t too long ago, but they are already three of my favorite albums of all time.
Anyway… they won the Grammy for Album of the Year and, apparently, no one knew who they were. This upset hipsters. Yeah… kinda silly. There was an awesome Tumblr made called Who is Arcade Fire??!!? that collected a bunch of tweets from people who were pissed off by the win because they had never heard of Arcade Fire before (I guess only bands that are super popular are supposed to win Grammys). And then… two days ago… this happened:
Yeah… I’m pretty sure that’ll put an end to this whole Arcade Fire / Grammy / Hipster madness.
