The Grammys suck, at this point any self respecting metal head knows that. Really ever since the gave the Grammy for best metal performance to Jethro Tull in 1989 we’ve realized this but for the 2015 version another new low was reached.
First during their annual memorial of musicians and people who work in the music industry that were lost during that year there was no mention of Wayne Static of Static-X or Dave Brockie (Oderus Urungus) from GWAR. They had some random business manager that no one knows but no mention of at least Oderus? A few years ago there was no mention of Peter Steele of Type O Negative either. It’s not like these bands haven’t had any success or anything, (sarcasm mode turned off.)
The second huge mistake was giving the best metal performance Grammy to Tenacious D. Now we all love us some Tenacious D but their version of Dio’s “Last in Line” is the best metal performance of 2014? You must be joking. Unfortunately that’s exactly what the Grammy’s are, a joke, at least to the world of hard rock and metal they are. It’s too bad, all they would have to do is get one thing right and we’d all be good with it. Well that’s alright Grammy board because while rock continues to be the best selling music genre in the world you just make yourselves look silly with all the pop and randomness of your award show.
