black keys v. vampire weekend: who’s the bigger sell-out?

as a former winner, stephen colbert is eligible to vote for the grammys this year. he takes us through some of the categories on his official ballot.

front and center is the race for best alternative album. (arcade fire, band of horses, broken bells, vampire weekend, and the black keys.) OF COURSE he has dan, patrick, and ezra on the show to duke it out.

colbert cleverly points out that the key to being the “most alternative” is being edgy and non-commercial. hilariously, he says the best way to determine the rightful votegetter in this category is to see which band’s songs had been in more commercials this year. hahahahahah so great:

Vodpod videos no longer available.
