Man, it feels like no music news happened this week except OH WAIT EVERYTHING HAPPENED. To be specific:

• The Grammys happened! And Adele won them! Chris Brown lost them (in the court of public opinion). And we had a fun time backstage.

• We attended them with Bon Iver and got an exclusive interview with your Best New Artist!

• Then we debated what it meant that dance music was so prominent at the Grammys this year.

• And then Dave Grohl praised dance music after seemingly dissing it.

• The new issue of SPIN starting hitting your mailboxes!

• Also, we lost a true diva, Whitney Houston and looked back at her legacy in 15 tracks.

• Valentine's Day happened, so we compiled a list of bitter songs.

• We learned who's playing Bonnaroo, got advice from Lamb of God, and found out Chris Cornell is an unlikely gay hero.
