Video of the week

Following the Grammy Awards, many people took to whoisarcadefire.tumblr.com, a website devoted to satiating rage-filled demands to find out who Album of the Year winner Arcade Fire is and why Eminem didn’t win the Grammy instead. Within the hate-filled posts, Jonathan Mann — famed for having written one song a day since 2009 — sings about the angry tweets and Facebook wall rants. In the video, Mann takes a brave stand against the haters and seeks to help them understand who the band truly is and what makes them award-worthy — without taking the ingratiating approach of the other posters on the Web.
