A couple of months back I read an oral history of The Replacements called All Over But The Shouting. Really good book. Anyway, in it there were several references to a popular Minneapolis rock band called The Suburbs. Apparently they were a big deal and were kings of the scene until Husker Du and The Replacements came and kicked everybody's ass.

I smiled every time they were mentioned in the book because, shit, that's the answer to the question! "Who the fuck are The Suburbs?" Well, they were a popular rock band in Minnesota in the '80s!

Just thought it was kinda funny that there actually is a band called The Suburbs. Adds another layer to that whole ridiculous Twitter thing after the Grammys.

Why would the world need an Arcade Fire album when Carly Rae Jepsen's debut will be out this fall?

CRJ?

I think she might be a one-hit wonder, my friend.

Arcade Fire is on a quest for the perfect pop song.

So, who'd like to hear a live performance of a new Arcade Fire song?

That clip was recorded in March??? I'm amazed that it took this many months to come out on the net.

Song is poppy. While it's not the direction I'd like Arcade Fire to go in, it sounds good.

Arcade Fire have always written poppy songs.

Half Light II and Sprawl II should have been huge hits.

Sprawl II is an example of why I don't like this band as much as the rest of you are pretending to. It's good, great even, but I just get nowhere near as much out of it as y'all seem to.

I'd kill to see them live though.

There's a little extra keyboard riff that comes in during the second verse of Sprawl II that absolutely makes the song.
