TV on the Radio on The Colbert Report: Better than the Grammys
To address Colbert's point on the Grammy's being irrelevant, TV on the Radio's album Dear Science was the most critically acclaimed album of the year. The album was named number one by Rolling Stone , Spin Magazine , The Guardian , MTV (did they even play the video? Who knows), Entertainment Weekly , and PitchforkMedia 's readers poll. It also won theVillage Voice
Pazz and Jop critic's poll, which is an amalgam of all those and many others. Yet they were not nominated for a single Grammy, and the winner of the Record Of The Year went to four guys who didn't even write their ecord . Yes, indeed, Colbert is far more relevant that the Grammy's.
