I agree With josh on the blink 182 deserving a nomination.. Music sucks today cause they only recognize garbage… Jeff beck is a great.. That has to be recognized.. Lol.

Rihanna should win everything… Her biggest threat is Adele. I LOVE Adele but, there are only a handful of songs that are great on 21. Rihanna’s LOUD album is better. Adele should take home Song of the Year, and Record of the Year.

yea this is a load of crap, how can rock bands like “Wilco” and “Jeff Beck” beat out Blink 182’s Neighborhoods? Ive never even heard of those 2 ppl…It is pathetic how all these award shows are run now…all the same damn musicians at every single one of them…what about when the nominations and the performers werent based on popularity instead of quality cuz man do I miss those days. Music Genre’s now n days are horse SHI*T…LADY GAGA beiber lil wayne thats all u hear and they all suck live and need all these ppl dancing on stage to even make it a concert. Blink 182 deserves a grammy nominee..if u saw them perform on dick clarks new years this year..by far best performance of the night out doing gaga beiber n everybody else..and why? because they went on stage they didnt need any other dance team to help them out…they jus went on stage played their hearts out and they deserve much more respect in this total down the drain music world we now live in.

Dude, you’re a moron. How can you sit here and talk about great rock bands and mention Blink 182. You’re kidding right? The worst part is you think you know great music and you don’t know who Jeff Beck is. Ask your boys Mark, Tom and Travis if they know who he is…idiot.

Jim, while Josh J lost all his credibility by saying he doesn’t know who Jeff Beck is, Blinks goin down in history as one of the greats in rock music, hate to break it to ya… and since when are you the one who chooses what music is great and what music is not?
