arcade fire 2011 Arcade Fires The Suburbs wins Best Album at the Grammys!

This just happened: Arcade Fire’s The Suburbs won Album of the Year at the 53rd Annual Grammys.

We’re still in shock, mostly because Lady Antebellum won everything else and Win Butler’s crew were denied the more minor, Alternative Album of the Year. But yeah, it did happen, and well, sometimes you just have to let Kanye do the talking: “#Arcade fire!!!!!!!!!! There is hope!!! I feel like we all won when something like this happens! FUCKING AWESOME!”

Other notable winners included The Black Keys, who beat out Arcade Fire for both Alternative Album of the Year and Best Rock Performance By A Duo Or Group With Vocals. The White Stripes (R.I.P.) were denied Best Long Form Music Video, but their Under Great White Northern Lights documentary did take home Best Boxed Or Special Limited Edition Package. Also, Neil Young won his second-ever Grammy for “Best Rock Song”, Them Crooked Vultures scored “Best Hard Rock Performance”, and Danger Mouse earned Best Producer.

Below, you can find all the noteworthy winners (they’re in bold).
