    Who is Arcadia (sic) Fire??!!!

    For your enjoyment, a tumblr dedicated to people who don't know The Arcade Fire:

    Who Is Arcade Fire??!!?

    Maybe CW is on there somewhere.

    "No idiot, The Suburbs is the name of the band. Arcade Fire was the song they played."

    Arcade Fire was far, far, far, too mainstream for serious hipsters years ago.

    Glad they won, even if I liked other albums more. Wilco would have had the same reaction for Sky Blue Sky (which was excellent) several years ago.

    Some of those tweets are embarrassingly stupid.

    OK, I'm not the most up-to-date guy when it comes to music, but I've heard plenty of Arcade Fire songs. Surely there aren't that many clueless people out there, are there?

    Arcade Fire is a great band. I haven't heard their newest CD, but Funeral is a great album. I should probably spend the money to get their new one...

    I think a lot of people need to understand that there is more good music out there than what is popular.

    Exactly. Most good music by true musicians never makes it mainstream. The major records are more interested in selling images instead of good music, mainstream country music is a perfect example of that.

    Most of the playlist on my Ipod is by people that my friends have never heard of. I am pretty lucky that my brother in law is part of the entertainment scene in downtown Chicago and is always tipping me off to some new bands to check out when they come through Chicago at some of the more low key venues.

    I personally feel that Funeral by Arcade Fire is one of the best albums start-to-finish in modern day music. It's an absolute must in any true music lover's library.

    I guess I don't mind them but I thought Muse should have one and perhaps Eminem but I am biased towards Eminem especially since I think this album was, at worst, his second best ever. Plus, he can perform, which is something the vast majority of hip hop artists can't do.


    It's all snark from here on out

    MUSE won for best rock album nd deservedly so. They weren't nominated for best album.

    Honestly, I think MUSE's three previous albums were better than The Resistance but they were not nearly as widely known in the US back then. For any of you that have recently started listening to MUSE, deffinitely take a listen to Black Holes and Revelations, Absolution, and Origin of Symetry. They are all among my all time favorite albums. Mostly because MUSE is in my top three favorite bands.

    My wife started listening to Muse after Absolution came out, and I followed close behind. I don't care for a couple of the quieter songs on that album, but the rest are really, really good.
