I think we should take the time to thank the underappreciated hero behind We Are Young: Janelle Monae

"For a new artist who releases, during the Eligibility Year, the first recording which establishes the public identity of that artist."

was about to say the same thing. basically it means regardless of the number of releases you can be nominated, but once only. am i right or wrong? I still prefer "The Format" but FUN is great but the radio is killing them for me.

Good for them. But I do think Steve Agee's take on fun. on Who Charted 100 is pretty safe. (Despite enjoying the first album)

It's kinda super sad that theyre the first "rock" band to do this, seeing as Some Nights was far inferior to their first album and inferior to countless "rock" records of the past 55 years.

Yeah I was just quoting the Press Release. Odd that they aren't labeled as pop band in it.

Super well deserved
I think what I read is that only 9 artists had gotten noms in those 4 categories in one year, but fun. were the first group (apparently implying all the others were solo artists, etc). But I can't find the link, so... Maybe I am wrong. Not a huge point either way; this is just awesome news.
