‘A heartfelt FUCK YOU’ — Trent Reznor is pissed off at the Grammys

Trent-Reznor

Many of us stayed up late tonight to watch Nine Inch Nails close out the 56th annual Grammys with a little on-stage help from friends Lindsey Buckingham, Dave Grohl, and Queens of the Stone Age. So imagine our surprise when the broadcast cut to a Delta commercial mid-performance, then ran credits over Trent Reznor and company while they were still busy rocking out.

Reznor, apparently, is not too pleased with the situation either. As the ensemble was tearing through Queens’ “My God Is The Sun,” which followed NIN’s “Copy Of A,” the CBS telecast faded out to credits, a Delta ad, a voice-over, and a pulled-back shot of a nearly empty Staples Center. Meanwhile, the band(s) were still ripping through their song.

Here’s what Reznor just tweeted a few minutes ago; sharing the sentiment of many:

 

According to Billboard, Queens of the Stone Age’s …Like Clockwork was nominated for Best Rock Album, while Nine Inch Nails’ Hesitation Marks was nominated for Best Alternative Music Album. Neither won a Grammy.

    Vampire Weekend won. They’re a great alt. band, so some justice was still served.

  • Joe Downey

    biggest load of shit i’ve ever seen. we all know trent has deserved a grammy for over a decade (at least) to have them ask someone they’ve continuously screwed over year after year to play and then fuck him even at that. fuck you grammy committee. i had no respect for you before but now i just plain don’t like you.

  • Faulke Yue

    duh…..said ungrateful…no mention of talent or no talent…events run out of time frequently…and not many Stars complain…its part of the business..maybe Trent should have requested to open the show or take Taylor Swifts spotlight…unclassy to be a whinner…and what have i done lately….ive always been myself..something youll never be..

  • Faulke Yue

    PS they pulled ole blue eyes one time too….Frank didnt whine….

    • process

      Well, we don’t really know that, do we? “Ole blue eyes” didn’t have Twitter.

      • Faulke Yue

        yeah..ole blue eyes had class…..

    Well boys you sleep with dogs you end up with fleas. Next time say “F the Grammys” BEFORE cozying up to them. Most indie acts get it. These guys can go cry to their accountants. They are great bands and have been big business for years. They are in the machine. Seems pretty whiney to complain about mistreatment now. So they cut to commercial. Waaaahhhhhhh. Go play some small venues where real fans can afford to see you.
