  • It’s not all crappy. Maiden are nominated as well as Halestorm. Not in the important categories – they are reserved for generally-crappy music – but if you look closely, then you can find some pearls in the 80 categories…

  • What’s interesting is who isn’t on there…Chris Brown. But RiRi is on there… Bitch is just asking for another beat down.

  • What ever happend to good old hard rock n roll where it feels like the bass is inside your chest about ready to explode and your ears are vibrating?? Mumford and Sons rock…..really????
