We Live In A World Where MGMT Could Lose A Grammy To Hall & Oates

by

Hey the Grammy nominations were announced. Beyonce, Lady Gaga, Black Eyed Peas, Taylor Swift, Maxwell (!!), etc. Best Male Solo Rock Performance is staggeringly old (Dylan, Young, Springsteen, Fogerty, Prince). Best Metal Performance ain’t so youthful neither (Slayer, Megadeth, Judas Priest, Ministry, Lamb of God). Phoenix is up for Best Alternative Album. And yeah MGMT is up for Best New Artist too, but here’s the real mind-bender:

Best Pop Performance By A Duo Or Group With Vocals (For established duos or groups, with vocals. Singles or Tracks only.)

“I Gotta Feeling”
The Black Eyed Peas
Track from: The E.N.D.
[Interscope Records]

“We Weren’t Born To Follow”
Bon Jovi

“Never Say Never”
The Fray
Track from: The Fray
[Epic]

“Sara Smile”
Daryl Hall & John Oates

Bon Jovi’s gonna win and it’s gonna be a total letdown.
