Undeniable Proof That the Grammys Don’t Care About Metal Music
I don't typically do editorials here but, after this years awards show, I can't help it. The Grammys, to me, have always been BS. People like them though so, I've always just found something else to do and stayed quiet. Until now.
In 1989, The Grammy Awards FINALLY acknowledged heavy metal. Granted, this award show's about as genuine as the WWE but hey, a nods a nod, right? At long last, a little recognition for the metal heads and that year, up against Metallica among others, who won? Jethro F***ing Tull, that's who. Since then they've tried, pathetically, to make it seem genuine
Worse still, was the grammy committee's lame tribute to the rockers we lost in 2014. A couple of peeps got their posthumous high five but they overlooked Scott Asheton of The Stooges, Dave “Oderus Urungus” Brockie from GWAR and Wayne Static among others.
They had Brent Hinds from Mastodon thrown out. And then there's that douche bag Kanye. 'Nuff said.
The Grammys are a rigged platform for over-indulged pop stars to pat themselves on the back. The "committee" never really wanted to acknowledge metal and seems hell bent on stepping away from it now as quickly as they can. Fortunately, metal heads never really cared anyway and they care even less now. Screw the "shammies", bring on the Golden God and Loudwire Music awards!
