word has it that u2 is set to perform 43 songs, as they are inducted into the grammy hall of fame.

unfortunately for die hard fans, u2 will be performing with creed, nickelback, nellie, britney spears, and naturally, aerosmith.

i got this off the wire at work.

I canít decide if I should stay home and watch,
or check in to the hospital and be re-circumcised.
May I suggest oral surgery instead. Doesn't require a hospital stay and you can go home and watch the grammies while heavily medicated.

Coldplay is alternative?

Avril is up for 5 nominations? Blechhhh

Michelle Branch is 100x more talented than Avril and her album is soo much better. Im shocked. If Avril wins, I'll...I don't know but it'll be srastic, you better believe it.

Avril? Come on...what the hell, were the friggen nominators on crack? Or did she show them her ass crack and beg for mercy??

Joyful


I have had oral surgery. I understand it, the necessity of it.

After reviewing these nominations: the artists they included in the same category, the artist they left out. There is no rhyme or reason to most of them.
That said, to watch this makes about as much sense to me as re-circumcism.

Certainly you realize they're industry awards....industry meaning business....business meaning $$$$...for the music industry and record companies and CBS...so it's essentially a popularity contest.

And yet I am fascinated... I agree with the train wreck theory

Utter rubbish. OK, I'm happy Coldplay, Beck, Norah Jones and U2 all got nominated, but Avril Lavigne? Good God what's the world coming to? Well, on the bright side, maybe Coldplay will perform! That's reason enough to catch it. Maybe Chris Martin will do his 'mini-Bono' dance moves and stuff.

I agree, i wish the Gabriel album was a little better, Im dissapointed.....

U2's only nom is against interference fave Coldplay......should be a good race

I'm still catching up from having been away...

Yeah, the snub of the Chili Peppers makes me a little mad. I'm not sure if "The Zephyr Song" was released in time, but "By the Way" was better than that dumb 3 Doors Down song, too. Either one would have been better.

Isn't "The Zephyr Song" great? I love all the weird happy/sad melodic stuff the Peppers have done on their last couple of albums.

Me too! I was sure they would get nominations. I don't always pay really close attention to the charts, but I was under the impression the By the Way CD sold well and the title track was really high on the Modern Rock singles chart. It was also a great tune, IMHO.
