Who is Arcade Fire?

Posted February 14, 2011 - By Moye Ishimoto

Who is Arcade Fire?

Who is Arcade Fire? It's the question that crossed America's mind last night during the 53rd Annual Grammy Awards when the Montreal based indie rock band took the top prize home after winning Album of the Year for The Suburbs. Hipsters everywhere rejoiced (or perhaps bemoaned that their 2011 Coachella headliner had officially gone mainstream) as fans of Lady Gaga and Eminem were left stunned. 

The hilarious confusion continues with our favorite Tumblr of the day: Who Is Arcade Fire??!!?? The blog compiles some of the best tweets and Facebook updates illustrating the world's distress over the band's win. Check out some of our favorite tweets after the cut!

    All I remember is that in 2007 MTV was whoring them out trying to find the next Fall Out Boy but their songs were too indie hipster for america, then years later of not caring about who they were I see the grammys and hear their faux-punk ripoff and wondered....did the academy just think "since they're already on stage..."
