Because Foo Fighters is obviously the superior Hard Rock/Heavy Metal band here, with Sum 41 being a close second.
#7
Because Dream Theater's new album is shit and Foo Fighters are a much bigger band in a much less niche genre.

What compitition did Foo Fighters have? Besides Megadeth with Public Enemy No.1 (which I believe sucked ass). Wait til this year when Metallica, Priest, Dragonforce, iMaiden and all the big bands go off and make records and tour. Next year's grammys will be alot more interesting (at least in the metal catagories, cant help the live performances part).

Well I think I can explain.

Dream Theater makes good music, you can't deny that. One does not simply makes a song like that one, it's to hard and requires study, skill and talent. But, Dream Theater band members are old and a lil fat...

Foo Fighters make basic songs, you can make something like that without understanding music theory (who needs theory when there is power chords?). But, they're young and good looking, also they are a commercial band.

humm...

Do you know who the Foo Fighters are?

And theory doesn't make your songs creative, being creative does, which is why they got it.

Also, outside of this website, few people give much of a shit for overly technical music when really all they want is something that sounds good while they go about their day. Dream Theater is boring if you don't know what they're doing. Or maybe they're just boring.

Dude, who cares about the Grammy Awards anyway

Does it actually surprise you that a band like Dream Theater did not win?

Average age of the Foo Fighters - 43

Average age of Dream Theater - 48

Not a lot in it.

oh, well... then why I'm wasting my time in a progressive metal band, it gives me so much work >.<.

I'll just take 5 minutes of my time to make a song like that and imma getting a grammy

Seriously, is it me who has a great musical talent and find that type of song basic and easy to do or is it just you that suck as being a musician, and because of that you find that thing a masterpiece?

You seem to be making the mistake of equating "musically complex" with "good."

I give you the rest of your life to write a song as well written as Everlong, or Stranger Things Have Happened. If it's so easy and you're theory is so deep you could do it by tomorrow right?

Sometimes basic is best. The quicker you realise that, the sooner you'll be a better musician.

Also, I'm convinced that Everlong is the greatest song ever written. I'm not even a big Foo fan. It's just that good.

I heard that they are hated in the US, never knew why though... but here, in europe they're pretty famous, and everyone seems to like them :/.

Also that list is a bit old, I need to change it a bit.
#28
The grammys don't know shit about metal. Like one time they gave Jethro Tull a grammy over Metallica. Really?

Which one looks metal?




TL;DR The grammys wouldn't know metal,even if it burst their eardrums.

They're popular everywhere, but everyone hates them.

And how could you hate on the Foos for being simple if you like Nickleback They write the same song over and over

Did I ever said that I hate Foo Fighters ??? No, I didn't. I just think they didn't deserved that grammy over DT.

The Foo Fighters are just a lil bit livelier Nirvana with some alcohol... a.k.a. just as shitty.

Well you said they got it because they don't know shit about music and they're young and attractive, sounds like hatin' to me. Ignoring the simple fact that White Limo is simply a better song, even though it doesn't have guitar solos. It's more metal/hard rock too.
