    Canadian rockers Arcade Fire have won the Polaris Award, which is their native country's top music prize. The band picked up the award for their Grammy-winning album The Suburbs. Congrats, Arcade Fire dudes.

    The Suburbs was the odds-on favorite to take the prize and it didn't disappoint odds makers and those who predict these sorts of things. The band was up against releases by some lesser known (but equally as worthwhile) Canadian acts like Austra, Ron Sexsmith, Colin Stetson and Timber Timbre.

    Arcade Fire frontman Win Butler applauded the competition, saying, "It doesn't matter if you've heard of a band before, they can still be the best thing in the world. And if you haven't heard of them, it doesn't mean they suck."

    Are you a fan of The Suburbs?
