Arcade Fire Politely Responds to People Just Recently Made Aware of, Angered by Their Existence

Arcade Fire's Grammy win for Album of the Year set off a massive wave of confusion, one that is still being catalogued by the Who Is Arcade Fire??!!? Tumblr. (Most recent: "THE FUCK! THE FUCK! THE FUCK! ARCADE GODDAMNED FIRE! WHO DA FUCK IS NO NAMES WE ALSO AINT NEVER HEARD OF"). Last night at the Brit Awards, where Arcade Fire won Best International Album and Best International Group, front man Win Butler acknowledged the firestorm: "We're called Arcade Fire — check it out on Google." Also, Vulture hint: If you do so and then turn up images of actual arcades on fire, you are bad at Googling. [MTV]
