Metallica, Foo Fighters, and rock as a genre have been grossly disrespected by the Grammys, as the genre won’t even get one of their biggest awards televised.
Avenged Sevenfold tweeted on during a Q&A that the Grammy won’t be telecasting “Best Rock Song” this year. Avenged Sevenfold, Metallica, Foo Fighters, K. Flay, and Nothing More are nominated for the award.
Run – Foo Fighters
The Stage – Avenged Sevenfold
Atlas, Rise! – Metallica
Blood In the Cut – K.Flay
Go To War – Nothing More
Fans on Metallica’s Reddit are not happy with this news.
If its not Poping then it can go Fuck it self. Look at the album of the year Nominees. Kendrick Lamars last 2 albums were more hardcore hip-hop but Damn. Has a lot more pop appeal so its getting a lot of praise.
Shit even David Bowie didn’t get nominated for shit till he died.
Grammies aren’t musics biggest night they’re PoPs biggest night.
Metallica doesn’t need that award. We as fans know what’s good. They don’t need an award from a bunch of 5 Years old that think Despacito is one of the best songs ever made LIKE WHAT THE FUCK….
I’m more shocked that they’re voting for actual rock bands this time around instead of a hip hop band like 21 Pilots or whatever shit Imagine Dragons is supposed to be.
Fuck the Grammys and fuck the current music industry. Their definition of art is autotuned and identical sounding shit about how many ho’s you fucked last weekend or how bitchy you are, or partying. Some rap and pop songs cover real topics, but for the most part, it’s shit.
