« Funniest Oscar Moment | Main | The Roast of AJ Daulerio: Best. Thing. Ever. »

While I thought it was crazy dumb the first time I watched it, I realized the second time around that like 3 of Winn's guitar strings broke during the song. Maybe he was legitimately frustrated?

Is this still not a music blog?


i think you have too much time on your hands if you are THAT concerned about arcade fire smashing their guitar.

Pistol Whip

My issue is more, did he have to smash it like such a wuss?

And also: are those knickers?


I think arcade fire sounds like Church music. I also didn't feel the anger with that guitar smash. and why ruin a perfect guitar? He could've sold it for a boat load.


would like to uncharacteristically chime in here and agree with the overall sentiment (lame stunt)--but not with the title of the post. i may be in the minority but i love this album.


He was just pissed - really pissed at his guitar - he destroyed it and then hit in against the stage like a wanker. No need to hate them simply for that, although I wish he lit it on fire and threw it at the over-rated Kenan Thompson.


To be very clear, it wasn't just a guitar that he smashed. It was an acoustic guitar. Smashing an acoustic guitar is tantamount to having a mysterious vagina appear on your penis. It's like finding out that Ozzy bit the head off of a bat...a gummi-bat!


I agree with a lot of what you said, but Nirvana was not commenting on consumerism. Kurt was high and self destructive (kill what you love, blah blah) -- but I was younger then too and it had a bigger impact on me as well. The best part of the Nirvana thing was Krist throwing his bass in the air and hitting himself in the head. That was so fantastic. I took it as a commentary on the fragility of skulls.
