Brit Awards ’08: Foo Fighters, Take That take ’em home


The 2008 Brit Awards were handed out yesterday in London! I know awards shows hardly affect your tastes, darling Buzzneters, but a few artists you’re into snagged some trophies.

Best British male: Mark RonsonBest British female: Kate NashBest British album: Arctic Monkeys – Favourite Worst NightmareBest British group: Arctic MonkeysBest British breakthrough act: MikaBest British live act: Take ThatBritish single: Take That – ShineInternational male solo artist: Kanye WestInternational female solo artist: Kylie MinogueInternational group: Foo FightersInternational album: Foo Fighters – Echoes, Silence, Patience & GraceCritics’ choice: AdeleOutstanding contribution to music: Sir Paul McCartney Oh and pictures, glorious pictures from this fine event… get ’em here.

Marvel Comics have used Foo Fighter’s songs for a new animated series trailer– without getting it cleared. Tsk tsk. Rolling Stone says “Best of You” and “Free Me” were used for the Wolverine and the X-Men.

Why they gotta be all cheap? I would think the Foo would lend their tunage for the right price and the right project, no?
