well... it's certainly better than "shut up and drive."

it's a shame... rihanna is actually a very good singer/performer but is cheapened by these cookie cutter cheese-o-tastic songs that her producers make her sing.

That makes sense. But actually, my favorite song is Long Nights. The whole soundtrack just flows so nicely. Don't they have an award for best soundtrack album?

I'm pretty surprised about The Boss getting dissed too. It's hard to call the voters Old Guard when they're nomming Foo Fighters over Bruce.

You thought Bruce would have been a shoo-in for the WIN after him and U2 lost to the O Brother soundtrack 5 years ago (they sure as hell made it up to U2). But to not even get shortlisted...shocking.

I'm pretty pleased about Alternative album, and wouldn't cry foul at any of them winning (even Lily). Though I'd love to see the Arcade Fire get some props over the rest.

As for the big awards, all I can say is AMY AMY AMY! So glad she's getting recognized. I hope she performs and blows the roof off the place, and how insane would the look on Kanye's face be if he lost again? If I had to vote, I'd say Kanye for album and Amy for song and record.

I agree with what Headache said about U2. Funny that it took the band so long to even get noticed by NARAS and now U2 is a give-me every year. Find that fairly lame. I also don't like nominations being given out for covers. Something not right about that.

So glad to see "Once" getting some notice because the soundtrack is amazing. Hopefully this will propel more people to buy the soundtrack and see the movie.

I'm also very glad that Ms. Amy got so many nominations because "Back to Black" is a tremendous album and she is so talented. I have my fingers crosses that she'll get herself in fighting shape and her music will once again be the focus.

Though probably not many here will agree, I was disappointed that Fall Out Boy (a huge-selling band) got no nominations for a really great album, "Infinity on High" Here's what Pete Wentz wrote about it:

got bitterness? vs. a revelation on true connection (and the award goes to).

the first reaction is jealousy mixed with a slight sense of entitlement. we just want to be a part of your club. we feel like the orphans in the movie the warriors, when we are just dying to be the baseball furies. the truth be told though when you explore it further than that you realize much more. other than the fact that we play the events for you and the right parties all the time (which is a bit embarrassing either for you or us, not sure which, possibly both. its kind of like being invited to a birthday party and then not allowed to eat the cake.)- it shouldnt mean much. (almost) noone in this industry has vision beyond the fear that this week is their last paycheck. we want our songs to be immortal and a statue doesnt do anything to help them live forever. it is the people that live and die with them in their ears and throats that give them life. we wont lie to you, accolades from our peers feel great. however, a fifty year old white man shouldnt decide whether we are relevant or not- and he doesn't. we wanted to thank you for making us feel relevant- for sitting up all night to get into our shows and for buying our music. it means more in the wake of moments like this. we know who we are based on those who would walk through hell with us. this is not a disappointment, rather a revelation on what is truly important. thanks.

The Five Types Of Grammy “Best Album” Nominees

The 2008 Grammy nominees were announced today, and at the risk of implying that the annual statue factory that is the Grammy Awards is in any way relevant, let’s handicap the field for this year’s “Album of the Year” nominees, which kiiiind of resembles last year’s “Album of the Year” nominees, and the year before that…

1. The New Album By Rock N’ Roll Band That Grammy Voters Have Actually Heard Of Because They’ve Been Around For 10+ Years: “Echoes, Silence, Patience & Grace” by Foo Fighters.

Past Nominees: “American Idiot” by Greenday, the last six or seven albums by U2

2. The Rap Album By Artist Who We’re Pretty Sure The Kids Are Listening To Because We Saw A Joke On Leno That Mentioned Him/Her, So We Might As Well Give Them One Nomination In a Category Without ‘Urban’ In The Title: “Graduation” by Kanye West

Past Nominees: “Late Registration” by Kanye West, “The College Dropout” by Kanye West

3. The Country Album That We Assume Is Probably Really Popular Because We Heard That Country Is Really Popular Because It Sells A Lot Of Albums: “These Days” by Vince Gill

Past Nominees: “Taking The Long Way” by the Dixie Chicks, “Come On Over” by Shania Twain

4. The Album By The Person Who We Heard Is Generating A Whole Bunch Of Controversy So They Must Really Be The Bee’s Knees: “Back To Black” by Amy Winehouse

Past Nominees: “The Marshall Mathers LP” by Eminem, “The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill” by Lauryn Hill

5. The Album That No One Has Heard Of Or Possesses Any Evidence That It Actually Exists, But Holy Sh*t, We Have To Let It Win: “River: The Joni Years” by Herbie Hancock, featuring Joni Mitchell, Leonard Cohen, Norah Jones, and Tina Turner.

Past Nominees: “Genius Loves Company” by Ray Charles, “Two Against Nature” by Steely Dan

Brilliant! That couldn't be more accurate. Well done to Best Week Ever.

I think is funny too. But I'm almost positive that U2 will win one of those awards. I really hope that Hey There Deliliah doesn't win. It was originally released as a single back in 2005, or maybe earlier. I just got so dang sick of that song. It was everywhere.

I do like the alternative choices, but i'm against the foo fighters winning. Amy Winehouse deserves props for her fantastic album. There are so few people that can pull off that kind of sound and she does it well.

If U2 does win it will be their 23 and or their 24th win. That is crazy!!! They have won more grammys than any other artist. True WITS and IK aren't their best work but they are so much better than some of the crap that was nominated. I don't usually watch the grammy's I will catch the highlights on youtube though.

Laz is specifically talking about the Album Of The Year category. Those other categories that Springsteen was nominated in aren't as big, and will most likely be awarded before the televised portion of the show.

I doubt Springsteen will show up anyway now.

Exactly. On what planet is Window in the Skies better than Sunday Bloody Sunday, New Year's Day or Pride (In the Name of Love)? As far as covers go, I understand nominating something like Johnny Cash's version of Hurt because he made it truly his own, but the U2 cover of Instant Karma isn't anything like that. I thought Green Day's cover of Working Class Hero was far superior.

On what planet is that necessary? SBS, NYD and Pride weren't released in the past year, hence they're not eligible.

I agree. In any case, Green Day is also nominated.

I was referring to the fact that SBS, NYD and Pride didn't get nominated when they WERE eligible. And Pride was a Top 40 hit in the United States, so you would think ever the Grammy voters would be aware of its existence back in '84.

I liked both the "Instant Karma" and "Working-Class Hero" covers, myself (and I loved the video for the latter).

That's quite the interesting little bit Pete Wentz wrote there regarding the Grammys. I haven't heard their album, and Fall Out Boy's a band I don't really have an opinion on one way or another (though I gotta say, their song "This Ain't A Scene..." is catchy stuff), but I do agree that it is kinda weird they aren't in there. He's right, though, statues don't keep an artist popular, the fans do.
