Dear Grammy Awards

Dear Grammy Awards:

Last night, you got one sort of right. Metallica did deserve the Grammy over the other crap that you nominated. However you have a long history of completely missing the fucking point with metal. First of all, Slipknot is not a fucking metal band. Secondly, perhaps if you dug a little deeper, you might find that there were much better albums out last year than Judas Priest, Metallica, Dragonforce, and Ministry.

You have a real fucking spotty record with regard to nominations and winners in general for this category. Looking over the list of winners, we have the following completely non-metal bands: Slipknot, Korn (what the fuck, not even Korn believes they are a metal band), Tool, Deftones (this one completely astonishes me and they fucking won over Iron Maiden for fuck's sake), Nine Inch Nails (if you don't use real instruments, it's hard to claim you're a metal band and they won twice), Rage Against the Machine, and the grand-daddy of all Grammy fuck-ups Jethro fucking Tull. The following completely-non-fucking-metal bands were nominated over the years: Stone Sour (really?), Mudvayne, Rammstein, Hatebreed, Marilyn Manson, Spineshank, P.O.D. (wow), Rob Zombie, System of a Down, Nashville Pussy, Rollins Band (I like Henry Rollins, but his band is most certainly not even fucking close to a metal band)

You have been warned Grammy. Either learn about real metal, try a little harder for nominations, or stop giving out the damn award.
