"Royal Blood sounds like a tampon brand".
Royal Blood scooped up the coveted British Band award at the Brits and, as per, One Direction fans were not happy. They're known to get a little bit rowdy but the Royal Blood fandom and the One D fandom couldn't be more different.
Like Beck before him, fans were left wondering who on earth these people on stage were because they sure as hell weren't Zayn's strand and the rest of 1D.

"Who are royal blood?" Yeah, you probably haven't heard of them because they worked hard to be famous and didn't go on a TV show— elle (@horribelle) February 25, 2015

But just when it seemed like all hope was lost for the other nominees to ever get mentioned, Kanye took the stage and started singing a new song called "All Day"--which sounded a lot like he was singing "Alt-J".
