arcade fire dominates canadas juno awards

Arcade Fire aren't only rockin' the suburbs…they're rockin' the world!

Back in February, we were excited to report that Arcade Fire won record of the year at the Grammys for The Suburbs.

Now, their winning streak continues at Canada's Juno Awards, where they've dominated the competition by winning album of the year for The Suburbs, as well as group of the year!

They also won the awards for best alternative album of the year AND songwriter of the year.

Very impressive, Arcade Fire! It's been all uphill ever since Spike Jonze put your song Wake Up in the trailer for Where the Wild Things Are. Ha!

Do U think Arcade Fire deserves all the praise they're receiving for The Suburbs? What album do U think was the best of 2010?

    Never heard of this badn, but they look like your typical hipster shit peddlers.

    Never heard of them - and I'm Canadian.
    More bubble-gum, overproduced crap without any substance I assume.



  3. 3

    Can't stand them, I just don't get it! Down with Webster blew them away!

    Re: Hesnotintou – AHAHAHAHAHAH!!!!! You are soooo wrong! They are not a bubble-gum band..

    Re:Hesnotintou

    No, their not "bubblegum, overproduced crap". In fact, they are the complete opposite.

    I was so happy to see Arcade Fire win at the Grammys- it was an unexpected breath of fresh air. After hearing a lot of generic music that was put out, the Grammys did something right in awarding AF. They are very deserving and I encourage everyone to check them out. You may not like them, but thats the whole idea of having your own opinion. : )

    plus, as a fellow Canuck, I think it rocks that a Canadian band is getting recognition! We have a lot of great talent in Canada… and no, I'm not specifically referring to Justin Bieber. ; )

    Re: Hesnotintou – You should educate yourself before you make a comment like this. I'm shocked that you're Canadian and have never heard of them. Do you live under a rock?

    I'm guessing that "overproduced crap" is your preference. You bash it, but you love it.



  10. 10

    Now THIS is a talented group, unlike most of the crappy "wannabe" groups you showcase on here.

    Re: Hesnotintou
    You couldn't be more wrong. Bubble-gum.. what a joke.



  12. 12

    arcade fire's recognition is WAYYY overdue.. they've been around for a while and have alwayyss put out greatness



  13. 13

    Eh, I don't really like them, but they are definitely more deserving than a lot of other bands out right now. At least they have this thing called talent and can actually sing and play instruments live. They're just not my cup of tea, but congrats to them.



  14. 14

    they won because they're fucking fantastic. who the fuck is "down with webster"? go get a fucking taste in music.

    Completly deserved! The Suburbs IS the best album I've heard in 2010. It's fun to see an indepedant band winning against huge music industrie machines like Lady Gaga or Justin Bieber (no offense). Plus, they never sold their music to do publicity and they do incredible charity work in Haïti so no one deserves this more!

    Re: Kimberbunny – you're either a retard or you've been in a cave for 5 years listening to britney spears. STFU and know what your talking about first.

    Re: Hesnotintou – you're canadian and you've never heard of them? you must be 8 years old then.



  19. 19

    Down with Webster?? Were just kicked in the head? Down With Webster Covers Hall & Oats songs. Arcade Fire writes legendary, soon-to-be-classic rock music. Wow.



  20. 20

    Re: Hesnotintou – uhh youre a dumbshit. their music is FAR from that. its ACTUAL music. you know, with bass, guitars, etc



  21. 21

    Kudos to Arcade Fire and the legend Neil Young.



  22. 22

    down with webster is is soo much better, they should have won



  23. 23

    ARcade fire are the best band in the world and they deserve all the credit, not spike jones and his shit film!!! He has nothing to do with there success!



  24. 24

    Spike Jonze had nothing to do with it…

    Re: KimberbunnyRe: Hesnotintou – YOU GUYS ARE FUCKING RETARDED



  26. 26

    Perez you fat bitch–you had to throw a slight in there didn't you. Because you invalidate your self daily with the shit music you push you're pissed. Who should have one–KP, no rihanna, no no Beiber, no no no Gaga. Your a waste and this blog sucks as bad as it is slow.

    Re: hung37 – I WAS going to buy the new Boy George stuff, but I'm so annoyed with all of your thread-crapping spamming that I'm going to make it a point NOT to now. Do you think people are stupid? You are the equivalent of religious nuts ringing my doorbell at 8:00 a.m. Saturday morning.
    Capiche?
