Walken and the "O Brother" soundtrack. Let no one say this year lacked for interesting musical thingys.

Strange... I didn't feel disgusted reading the list of winnners. I must be getting old and complacient.
2002-02-28 09:02:19 AM  
Who are all those people?
2002-02-28 09:06:58 AM  
Excellent! Weapon of Choice was nominated for a Brit for best vid, but lost out to Basement Jaxx' excellent video for Where's your head at?.
2002-02-28 09:14:20 AM  
Well I'm glad to see "Tool" won one.... Tool fukin rocks! Bout time they're noticed.

FOR SALE: Grammy Award. Will consider trade for credible music award. Can pair with slightly used Canadian Juno award for Best Album (Anne Murray, "There's A Hippo In My Tub").
Evenings and weekends only. 465.987.6785
2002-02-28 09:25:23 AM  
Anybody got a link for "Weapon of Choice"
2002-02-28 09:31:47 AM  
in other news, grammys deemed worthless by millions of people who prefer to listen to music of their own choosing instead of being told who to listen to by "the grammy committee".
2002-02-28 09:39:10 AM  
George Carlin won one so maybe he can start binging again.

"Drops of Jupiter" Best Rock Song?

Oh god! The terrorists have won.

That is one hell of a pansy-assed song. Geesh.

I love Bono's quote from last night:

"Being Irish, if you get eight nominations and got no awards they wouldn't let you back in the country," lead singer Bono joked early in the evening.

Anyone else totally shocked to find out Bono even remembers he was once from Ireland?

Jayhawk: Bono and the rest of U2 live in Dublin - theyve never lived anywhere else.

They Might Be Giants won a Grammy!

Isn't that the "seventh sign"?
2002-02-28 09:57:39 AM  
I wonder if Bono and the rest of U2 live in Dublin? It's possible they've never lived anywhere else.

Weapon of choice is the greatest music video ever, followed by thriller.
2002-02-28 10:09:14 AM  
Rock Chalk, Jayhawk. Good to hear from one of God's chosen alum.
2002-02-28 10:23:43 AM  
they might be giants, george carlin, this video, oh brother where art thou, and steve martin in that huge list for foggy mountain breakdown.. nice to find a few deserving award winners among such total crap.. and what's with most of those categories.. nice to see polka has it's own award thou.. all those crazy polka fans might get mad and drink some beer..
2002-02-28 10:26:37 AM  
Well, my band SLAYER got beat out by Tool for best Hard Rock song.
But Eric Clapton won for best rock instrumental and my favorite guitarist of all time won for best Hard Rock Instrumetal for "Dirty Mind"(One of the greatest songs I've ever heard !)off of "You Had It Coming". I'm talking Jeff Beck people !!!

If U2 winning anything isn't a clear sign the Grammy's are a waste of time...
2002-02-28 10:45:31 AM  
sheesh. I copied too much text. oh well.
2002-02-28 10:54:28 AM  
The Grammys are a bunch of bullshiat. Giving people awards so that consumers can go out and waste their money on albums with one or two good songs. Oh well, at least they didnt give Linkin Park anything....

Oh God
2002-02-28 11:03:04 AM  
Why should U2 winning anything mean the Grammy's suck? They suck regardless...

hey Harmonia. I see you. pendeho.
2002-02-28 11:06:20 AM  
Needs obvious tag!
2002-02-28 11:22:20 AM  
Whats wrong with Linkin Park?? Those guys are awsome, and a hell of a lot more musically coordinated than U2 if you ask me. Never been a U2 fan, never will be, but Linkin Park and Tool, hell yea.
2002-02-28 11:28:15 AM  
"Short Form Music Video: "Weapon of Choice," Fatboy Slim featuring Bootsy Collins."

Umm... who the fark is Bootsy Collins? And why is he credited and not Walken?
2002-02-28 11:31:30 AM  
because bootsy collings is a MUSICIAN. he wasnt' paid to be in a video. hence, he's credited.
2002-02-28 11:31:56 AM  
collins, rather
2002-02-28 11:35:33 AM  
drpcken, all im saying is that i hate their music, and that most people that i know that like linkin park are morons. But i'm not saying that you cant listen to and enjoy them. Different strokes for different folks i guess.
2002-02-28 11:37:34 AM  
Tool is OK, but "Schism" is certainly the most boring, dullest song ever.

Big congrats to Linkin Park for picking up Best Hard Rock Performance.

And a big F U to Alica Keys for sucking so much.
2002-02-28 11:44:10 AM  

cudos for your opinion dude, but what music do you listen to? Who's your favorite band?
2002-02-28 12:04:12 PM  
Where is the line for Alicia Keys sucking at ?
2002-02-28 12:10:33 PM  
Screw Linkin Park. Hybrid Theory is the worst cd I've ever bought. At least Tool has musicians with talent, and a frontman who's worth a damn.
2002-02-28 12:11:50 PM  
Who is Bootsy Collins?
Have you been living under a rock
..in the dark
..with your fingers in your ears
..and your eyes closed
..on Mars?

BTW - best video ever goes to "Easy" by Faith No More, 2nd goes to "Peaches" by The presidents of the USA

2002-02-28 02:51:48 PM  
walken wins! yes! that's no fatboy vid, that's the walken vid! i think he waived his fee for this too, he should at least get a little somethin-somethin
2002-02-28 03:52:46 PM  
Damn, I never realized what kind of strange-ass awards they give out. They gave an award for album notes! Album notes, you know, those little thingies in the front of the CD case! No wonder the Grammys are so screwed up. Rock on Walken though, that was a great video.
2002-02-28 03:59:50 PM  
Thanks Rwkasten.

Well, after watching both of those vids; 'Weapon of Choice' and 'Where's your Head at', I have to say, Where's your Head at' just sounds and rocks a whole lot better. The WoC video was ok because of Walken, but nothing can beat those monkeys in WyHa.
2002-02-28 06:59:22 PM  
"Weapon of Choice" would have been nothing without Walken. He should have gotten the award. Coolest man on the planet--no argument.
2002-02-28 07:10:46 PM  
This is weird:
I bought one CD all last year, the soundtrack to "O Brother Where Art Thou?".
I saw one music video: "Weapon of Choice", thanks to Fark.
Now, I saw exactly two movies at the theater: AI (which sucked), and Lord of the Rings (several times). LotR is nominated for 13 Oscars.
