Mumford and Sons experience biggest Grammy bounce; Dave Grohl named Godlike Genius
- Arcade Fire may have taken home the top award, but Mumford and Sons experienced the biggest boost on the Billboard charts. The British folk rockers, who performed alongside the Avett Brothers and Bob Dylan at last Sunday's Grammys, sold 133,000 copies of "Sigh No More," their highest weekly total to date. It was good enough for No. 2 on the charts, behind Justin Bieber, who somehow has four Top 40 albums this week. Album of the Year winners Arcade Fire land just outside the top 10 with 41,000 copies of "The Suburbs" sold.
- Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl received the Godlike Genius trophy at yesterday's NME Music Awards. Winners for Best British Band and Best International Band (voted on by readers of the British music mag) were Muse and My Chemical Romance, respectively.
