The fact that The Resistance isn't nominated for best album is a travishamockery.

Somehow less offensive than usual, but it still pisses me off in spots. Easily one of the weakest batches of alternative albums in years. Shouldn't surprise me in the slightest that the top 5 were all the best-selling of the year, rather than the best. Ray Montagne being nominated for song of the year made my day.

This, however, is a damn shame:

Thank Me Later is no more rap than 808s And Heartbreak, Jay-Z's should have been an EP, and Em's album was panned by nearly everyone in the rap community. B.O.B's is fun but too scatterbrained to deserve it. That leaves The Roots, whose album is good, although it's not really their best. Where the hell is Big Boi?

The pop vocal album list is what's wrong with radio today.

Looking at the Album of the Year award, there's absolutely no way KP or Lady Antebellum will win. So that award is down to either Arcade Fire, Gaga, or Eminem. Honestly, I'd be happy with either Arcade Fire or Gaga getting it. AF deserves it out of that group, and the Suburbs is in my top 3 albums of 2010, so that'd be cool. And The Fame Monster had a clutch of really memorable singles, including one of the best and biggest zeitgeist-capturing pop songs that I can remember. (How the fuck was Bad Romance snubbed for both Record and Song of the Year, considering the mainstream bent of these noms and the other nominees? That's a serious head scratcher.)

And, of course, I hope Backspacer wins Rock Album, although Eddie and the guys wouldn't give two shits if they won the award.

Probably. Although I would make the argument that Neil Young will win it, just because he's fucking old.

And, yeah, it's a good record. A lot more creative than Backspacer, which PJ sort of mailed in.

Their acceptance speech when they won for Spin The Black Circle in '96, featuring a coked out Mike McCready:

YouTube - Pearl Jam 1996 Grammy's Speech

Eddie!

With AF nominated in two album categories, I think it'll win in the alternative category over album of the year.

Ray LaMontagne (y'all are missing the "La"!) is quite random, but I like him a lot.

Nice to see "Fuck You" up there a few times.

Esperanza Spalding is not "new," but I suppose that's not shocking for that weird category. (I heard about her yesterday while reading about NPR's top album picks, and saw she had videos on YouTube from her debut album in 2008.)

I'm a Muse fan, but I don't think The Resistance is all that great.

I copied and pasted that short list from somewhere and can't believe that I didn't catch that it was missing the La in LaMontagne. Damn.

I don't know much about his music at all, but I remember that he wrote a song about Meg White a couple years back. That was pretty cool.

Yeah, I think AF has a really good chance in the alternative album category as opposed to Album of the Year. I think they deserve that one tho but I am pretty sure it will go to GaGa or Eminem.

I hope Muse gets at least one out of the three they are nominated for.

Pop Vocal Album category. Justin Bieber and Susan Boyle in the same sentence?

I truly hope Bieber doesn't win best new artist. That would be an all-time low.
