    Jesus, that GVF singer reminds me of Luther from The Warriors.

    You had to have a COMMERCIAL release in 2018 to be eligible.

    So, for 12,000 Recording Engineers, Producers, Sound Guys, ect to nominate you, you likely have a significant foothold in the industry.

    But still, for them to nominate Deafheaven's "Honeycomb", a 12 minute song that is probably unmarketable, that's pretty badass.

    I haven't watched any awards shows in at least 45 years. Probably longer .I'm guessing the odds of watching this one aren't very good. I just don't get the fascination with them

    People still upset about a Grammy show from 31 years ago, should probably be told that Metallica has won EIGHT Grammys, and has been nominated for FIFTEEN.

    Metallica is not underrepresented by the Grammys.

    They should have 9 Grammy’s.

    It was just the clearest example of what a joke these award shows are.

    The only thing foolish is admitting at work you watched it.

    What's the pay off for getting me to watch? To expand my mind to new music? I can do that without being told. But your persistence to guilt us seems a little suspicious.

    And to accuse anyone of not watching because "it's all black guys" is absolutely ludicrous and uncalled for and unfounded. That comment to try and generalize all of us Is getting a little old. I come here as an escape from politics.

    Never cared for the pitting of those engaged in creative or intellectual pursuits against each other in some spectacle of feigned competitive validity. I think it demeaning.

    Especially that ceiling paint that goes on purple and whitens as it dries. Mind blown

    In 15 years, having a lawn with real grass will probably be a felony.

    Going from memory here, and I know someone that cares to google will straighten me out... didn't the Grammys NOT air the Rock category on the broadcast last year?

    I think last year the winners were announced on one of the bumpers.

    There are 100 categories, so they obviously can't always show them all.
