Could this be the sign we have been waiting for that Rock n' Roll is finally returning to it's former glory, if a rock band is one of the main performances? Nothing made me happier than when Arcade Fire totally dominated the Grammy's back in 2011, it was amazing! Since then nothing has really stuck in my mind. What pisses me off about the Grammy's is that real, actual bands with real musicians who write and perform their own music are included in the same awards ceremony with "artists" (I just puked a bit as I typed that) like Chris Brown, Justin Bieber, Selena Gomez, Rihanna, Katy Perry and all those clowns who couldn't write a song if their lives depended on it. They just mime what they are told to, dance their pathetic little puppet dances, act like the biggest losers ever in their personal lives and then sell millions of records and get praised. All that being said, I still am happy when real artists are acknowledged!
Jack White is nominated for three Grammy's with his debut solo album 'Blunderbuss' up for album of the Year and Best Rock Album, while the single "Freedom at 21" is in the running for Best Rock Song. These nominations are in addition to the 9 previous Grammy's he's won over the years.
Just to get you excited here is Arcade Fire performing "Ready to Start" as the final performance of the night at The Grammy's 2011:
