The Grammy nominations have pretty much been a joke with old, stuffy label heads voting in categories they have no business choosing. I’m pretty sure I remember Will Smith beating Hova for a Best Rap Album Grammy once. Anyways, the past few years the voters have got much better. Here Grammy Winner and voter Stephen Colbert (yea, weird, I know) offers up a pretty hilarious sketch on his choices for Best Alternative Album and the whole notion of indie bands “selling out”.

    I found it pretty funny that both bands were willing to openly address this selling-out – good on them!

    I also had missed a lot of those Black Keys plugs (even though I had seen all of the commercials on the skit). The “holiday” ads were a little more difficult to miss.
