Watch: Arcade Fire wins the Grammys

Pin it

All of it! Fine, not all of it, but Arcade Fire's The Suburbs did win Album of the Year, the top prize at last night's Grammy Awards.

In various corners on the internet, this is being billed as a "shocker," an "upset," and an "indie-rock coup," mostly by people whose minds simply cannot imagine anybody other than Lady Gaga taking home an award for anything.

Apparently the members of Arcade Fire are having a hard time believing it too. After the win, the Merge Records band tweeted,

OH MY GOD OH MY GOD OH MY GOD OH MY GOD OH MY GOD OH MY GOD. Thank you EVERYONE.

Congratulations, guys, on beating somebody who arrived to the awards show in an egg.
