Dance Duo Wins Best Album At Grammy Awards

This year, French dance duo Daft Punk took top honors at the Grammy Awards by winning five prizes including album and record of the year. Wait…what? A dance group took Best Album and Best Record?

Just to twist the knife a little harder, the next big winner of the day was rap duo Macklemore and Ryan Lewis who took home four awards including best new artist. Yes, a dance duo and a rap duo took home 9 awards this year, including some of the top awards.

Not to knock dance music (okay, that’s not entirely true), but what the hell is wrong with the music industry nowadays? The album that won for Best Dance/Electronica, also won for Best Album. Not a single album from…well, anyone else in any other genre could manage to beat a bloody dance album? Seriously, if that’s the case then it's no wonder the whole music industry is in the toilet!
