(Gibson) Much has been written about Arcade Fire's surprise win for Album of the Year at the Grammys last month, beating out such heavy hitters as Eminem, Lady Gaga, Katy Perry and Lady Antebellum.

The Rosie O'Donnell set are still shouting, "Who the &*%$ are Arcade Fire?!" Meanwhile, critics and indie fans alike are pleased as punch that finally the Grammy voters got it right. As for the band themselves, they continue to field questions from the press about their shocking victory.

As the band rolled into Toronto this weekend to appear on the 40th anniversary Juno Awards, frontman Win Butler talked about the group's reaction when their name was called. "We were just totally shocked," he told TheStar.com. "It was definitely a shocker. It was a pretty fun experience to go through with your friends who you've been playing music with for a long time. It was just genuinely shocking. You don't get shocked that many times in life, so it was kind of fun to be shocked on national television." more on this story
