The Tumblr “Who Is Arcade Fire??!!?” is still going strong (my favorite is to your left) and it shows no signs of slowing. I mean, I got asked by a co-worker last night to explain what Arcade Fire sounds like, and my co-worker just rolled his eyes and said, “Sounds like typical Grammy-winning shit.” Not really, dude.
At any rate, while at the Brit awards, Arcade Fire were asked to respond to the Meme, and they did it gracefully, as they are wont to do: “We’re called Arcade Fire—Check it out on Google.” Classic. They should have maybe included the addendum of “Also, our album Funeral is the best one.” [NYMAG]
