setting aside that most of it is all pop and rap garbage(on kanye west's speech he couldn't string together a coherent sentence, which is suprising when he makes his living talking really fast) i was most surprised at the more obscure ones.

like slayer winning best metal performace, when machine head was nominated. didn't virtually every internet "source" name it the best metal album of the year, while even fans of slayer were kind of dissapointed with christ illusion?

and the best instrumental performance, in which joe satriani's "always with me always with you" and steve vai's "the attitude song" were nominated, but bruce springsteen won! bruce springsteen?! i thought he was dead!

Did anyone see Tina Turner?


But yeah, Grammys are always full of shit. It's just a big duet wankfest, and they all cream over each other.
Of course, I watch it anyway...

It's an awards show. It's all about record industry politics. You expected it wouldn't be?

Really? I thought Porcupine Tree would be like, above the Grammys. They seem pretty much against the industry and the Grammys would be the last thing I could see them participating in.

she's in rehab now, but the question isn't what drugs does she do. It's what drugs doesn't she use. All of the above sir. All of the above.

i just listen to my music and i don't give a crap if the artists win an award.
#34
Hm, I enjoyed the show. Whatever.

I thought the performances were good for the most part, especially Kanye's and Josh Grobans, which was incredible. I thought Aretha Franklin was stellar as usual. I actually thought Dave Grohl didn't sound too hot that night. Meh.

Oh, and John Mayer coming in during Alicia Keys was ****ing awesome.

Doesn't mean they're too far up their own asses to accept an award.


And this whole thread is basically, "My music isn't popular WAH WAH"


And here comes the kids saying they don't mind that their music isn't popular because they don't mind being social outcasts who can't get laid because they're too pretentious about the "popular music" other people listen to.


Truth hurts.

I thought it was a pretty good show...

Kanye, Morris Day and the Time, Foo Fighters, Josh Groban, John Mayer...all of them put on really good performances!

I thought that Beatles Circus Olay bit was pretty sweet too.

how were any of the artists nominated for Best Rock Instrumental relevant? do you see a large shred or prog revival going on in the mainstream? i sure don't...if anything the picked the most relevant artist to win.

Does anyone remember that song that had the performance with that one girl who was flying with the strings, and all of a sudden everything went wrong, and came back to good again?

The grammys are a joke. 50 gazillion sub-genres of music so
everybody can have one.
