Not like this is any different from any other year, but the Grammys missed the rock boat. Passed by again is Shinedown, Five Finger Death Punch, Pop Evil, Foo Fighters, Seether, Godsmack. Even The Pretty Reckless should have been nominated for something. It is embarrassing for us in the music world to say the Grammys are cool or have to keep our mouths shut for fear of getting in trouble for talking about an artist who did get nominated but clearly does not deserve it. These are the same kinds of people that ranked Eddie Van Halen the 75th-best guitar player. WTF? He is now in the top 10! Thank God for that.

Members of the board of directors for the Grammys are clearly getting fat paychecks from somebody. I will record the Grammys only to make fun of the pathetic lyrics of song like "It's All About That bass" and "Shake It Off."
