Iggy Pop's recent proclamation about bands today being a bunch of “cheap drinks” you can find at a supermarket got me thinking. But much like Homer Simpson, when I think of a drink, my brain goes directly to beer. If artists today are a bunch of drinks, what kind of beers are they, exactly?

While last night's 54th Grammy Awards was the week's biggest music event, the show had something of a dry run Friday night, when Paul McCartney was honored at the 22nd annual MusiCares Person of the Year gala in Los Angeles.
Ahead of what should be a memorable weekend at the Grammys for the Foo Fighters, the band stopped by The Late Show with David Letterman to present the "Top Ten Interesting Facts About the Grammy Awards." Check out the video below.
