WHAT. THE. HELL. WHO IS ARCADE FIRE?????????
Arcade Fire may be adored in indie rock circles, but the band's Grammy for Album Of The Year lit up the Twittersphere and Facebook alike last night with comments from baffled people who've never heard of the group.
Now, not even 24 hours since the announcement, a Who Is Arcade Fire? Tumblr exists (some posts NSFW). The blog currently contains two pages of screen-captured tweets and Facebook exchanges regarding the hugely-popular band's relative "anonymity." The posts range from those blatantly outraged:
WHAT. THE. HELL. WHO IS ARCADE FIRE????????? AND WHY DID THEY STEAL EMINEM/LADY GAGA'S AWARD????!!!!!! Like. Is this real life....??????
... to the strangely irrelevant:
LOL @ all the nobodies at the Grammy's. wtf? ARCADE FIRE? I'm sorry it should've won the stupid name award.
... to the bored and indifferent:
album of the year ? ummm never heard of them ever
What do you think about Arcade Fire winning the Grammy? Were there any big winners you'd never heard of?
