No putting out this Fire

Montreal based Arcade Fire has been catapulted into the stratosphere with their Grammy win last night for Album of the Year. "The Suburbs" beat out entries from Eminem, Lady Gaga, Katy Perry, and Lady Antebellum.

Indeed, the city of Montreal is so happy that their home page proclaims in all caps "BRAVO ARCADE FIRE FOR ITS ALBUM OF THE YEAR GRAMMY!"

The tribute came one day after members of the Montreal group thanked their home city while receiving the music industry's most prestigious award.

Last year, Arcade Fire held a concert in a Montreal-area parking lot to launch their now-Grammy-winning album.
