I like how there's apparently a whole bunch of people just now figuring out the Grammys are shiat.

keep listening to what you like and quit worrying about the bullshiat circlejerk that is the Grammys.

The Grammy's are so pointless and out of touch and lame that I'm going to complain even louder about them this year.

Grammys are to music as Oscars are to film.

Does anyone really waste time with the Grammys* anymore?

*insert "award" of choice here...CMAs, Oscars, SAGs, whatever....

it's pretty much the "everybody gets a ribbon for showing up" concept now.

Did they snub him because he died of alcohol related liver problems?  Some awards shows do that, although it's not consistent.  The Oscars are notorious for snubbing people that may have died from alcohol or drug related problems....the list is quite long.  And in that same segment they'll show a dozen entertainment lawyers or agents.  But they didn't snub Whitney Houston.

I don't see the big deal in showing someone's photo if they passed away if they worked in the industry.

But if the Grammys snubbed musicians that party hard they wouldn't exist.

I'm quite certain that Hanneman wouldn't give a flying fark about being mentioned at the Grammys.

While Slayer will always hold a spot on my playlists, they are a shell of what they used to be.  King's songwriting is just not good.  Everything sounds the same with him.  It was Jeff's songs that made Slayer, Slayer.  Don't get me wrong, King has some good songs here and there.  I know people will toss out the fact that Jeff hasn't been playing in Slayer for a few years now since his bite.  There was always hope of his coming back and writing again.  Now that he is gone, and they dismissed Lombardo - I think it's time for the Kerry King show to call it a day.

heavy metal musicians usually don't count unless its somebody really individually famous.  i wonder if the lead singer from suicide silence was mentioned the year he died.  peter steele from type o negative?  i bet the bass player from slipknot got mentioned though.  the mainstream music industry that produces stuff like the grammys really does not care about or support metal music at all, as every metal fan knows.  they occasionally promote bands like metallica as if to say "see, we talk about metal music too!" but its a joke.

I know a lot of you don't care for That Metal Show, but Eddie Trunk and VH1 Classic has done a lot to bring recognition to the genre.  But still, can't argue with the truth.

Not a legitimate complaint. They have so many freakin' categories and winners we don't even know about there is no way they can honor all the dead grammy winners every year. You could fill a shipping container with dead grammy winners, the vast majority of whom we have never heard of. George Solti won 31 of them and nine in ten never heard of the guy.

Hey, I actually had a friend who was nominated with his metal band (Killswitch Engage) this year.  Didn't win, but it showed that they still keep track of some of the "smaller" acts out there.

And yet Cory Montieth got a mention, and he's not even known as a musician.
 
2014-01-28 12:15:27 PM
Same thing happened a couple of years ago. Whitney Houston died (I think) the night before the Grammys and they fell all over themselves to get her in the montage... while somehow managing to completely forget Etta James, who'd died a month earlier. That was REALLY annoying.

I realize I may be a heartless bastard, but how does anyone anywhere feel sorry or saddened by a person they never knew dying of a heroin overdose? Especially enough that they're outraged over a minor misspelling of said person's name.

Oscars acknowledged the death of Heath Ledger when he died of an overdose. He was nominated that year for the Joker, but still was listed.

And she only has 7 acting credits listed on IMDB.  Jeff Conaway got the snub that year, and he had 89 credits including GREASE.

Same thing with DeForrest Kelley...snubbed.  WTF???  I know he was better known as a TV actor, but he made a lotta movies (not just the ST films).

That's one of the reasons I quit AICN...they had a five page obit for the fencing coordinator for Star Wars, but they snubbed Harry Morgan...no mention of his passing.  Harry. Frikkin. Morgan.  I would say Harry Morgan crapped bigger than Harry Knowles....but that's a *mighty* tall order there.

Wettner: Oscars acknowledged the death of Heath Ledger when he died of an overdose. He was nominated that year for the Joker, but still was listed.


He's definitely the exception rather than the rule.  Plus he got major press for his take on the Joker, which most likely played into it.

Cory Haim is another snub.  Despite anyone hating him, he did work in the industry.

The folks who do the memoriam segment for the Academy Awards are full-on douchebags.  They always claim "we just didn't have time to mention everyone"...but they'll include two dozen talent agents, attorneys, or whatever.  And it takes what, 3-4 seconds to show a photo with a name?  Douchebags.
 
2014-01-28 01:06:40 PM
The Grammys completely forgot a little known British musician by the name of George Harrison the year he died too. That was by far their biggest fark up.

The Oscars remembered him though for his work as a producer.

Award ceremonies are simply massive circlejerks.

If you haven't listened to/watched everything nominated, you should, because how can you possibly have an opinion on who should win?

If you have listened to/watched everything, why the hell would you watch, because your opinion on what you think "the best" is, is the only opinion that should matter.

As a general rule, the Grammys don't really give a shiat about hard rock and heavy metal.  Black Sabbath won the Grammy for Best Hard Rock/Heavy Metal Performance, but they didn't even get to receive their award during the main telecast.  Jeff Hanneman and Clive Burr were left out of the "In Memorandum" montage.  And the ceremony ended with a collaborative performance between Nine Inch Nails, Queens of the Stone Age, Dave Grohl and Linday Buckingham, but the network ran credits over the performance and then cut it off halfway through (Trent Reznor quickly went to Twitter and told the Grammys "fark you" for the insult).

Yeah, the Grammys did make a token gesture of including metal by having Metallica (the only metal band a lot of mainstream music fans know about) perform along with Lang Lang, but they've still got a long ways to go when it comes giving metal the same amount of attention they give pop, hip-hop, dance, etc.

/the Grammys are still better than the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame.  Fark Jann Wenner.

LOVE that show. I loathe metal, but the genre deserves respect. It's great to watch musicians being interviewed by genuine fans. I've learned a lot from TMS, which only increases my respect for metal bands (for whom, admittedly, I ignorantly used to have very little).
 
2014-01-29 12:23:24 AM
I don't care about the Grammys at all but it does seem like for an award show that is dedicated to music failing to mention a founding member of a band that has been at it for 30 years, sold 8 or 9 figures worth of records and for one of their members who won two of them in the last decade to not be mentioned seems a bit odd...I mean, if someone who won 2 of your awards in the last decade died and it's not worth mentioning it seems like by proxy you're basically saying that the award itself isn't worth mentioning.

Even for Fark, that's weapon grade stupidity you're wielding there. Slayer gets snubbed because the gays? Did you even read that before you posted it?
