Right On Time: “Who Is Beck” Is Trending
Critically-acclaimed and internationally successful recording artist Beck, who rose to fame in the 90s on the strength of his alt-rock, genre-bending albums Mellow Gold and Odelay, won the Grammy Award for Album of the Year tonight for Morning Phase.
Right on cue, the nation’s 12-14 year olds took to Twitter to admit (or claim) that they don’t know who he is. This same thing happened with Arcade Fire a few years back, then Bon Iver, and some people think it happened a few weeks ago with Paul McCartney, though all the tweets we saw appeared to be trolls.
Here are the people who (we think) don’t know who Beck is.
Yes, yes we are. And I’m not even an intern. This is my job!
