    I've seen this posted on a few websites today.. Pretty fucking amazing that these bands have never won a single Grammy.

    1) Queen
    2) Run DMC
    3) Led Zepplin
    4) Jimi Hendrix
    5) Beach Boys
    6) Bob Marley
    7) Rush
    8) The Ramones
    9) The Who
    10) Kiss

    People that have won a Grammy... Justin Timberlake, Lady Gaga, Boyz 2 Men, Lil Wayne, Katy Perry, Green Day, 'NSync, Milli Vanilli, Maroon 5, Taylo Swift.. :facepalm:

    I don't believe they even had a "rock" category until around 1980, even after that they were giving rock awards to pop bands and calling Jethro Tull Hard Rock/Heavy Metal.

    Guns N' Roses only got nominated once, for best hard rock/metal performance, in 1992 for the Use Your Illusion I album, and didn't win :facepalm:

    Sweet Child O' Mine should have been Song/Record of the year in 1988, and it didn't even get nominated :facepalm:. I think it went to that one hit wonder, Bobby McFerrin :facepalm::facepalm:

    Yeah, the hard rock/metal categories are never televised. If I actually gave a shit, that would annoy me.

    At one time, the Grammy was held in the highest esteem, the standards were set so high that it made it difficult for the great bands on this list to be considered. About 20 years ago when the Grammy's were losing viewers to all the hip awards shows that were on almost every other week. AMA, Blockbuster, MTV, Billboard, Soul Train, B.E.T., on and on.. There was quite a bit of talk that they wanted to attract the "young viewers", now they will give it to any shitty group or performer that happens to be on top at the moment. And the show has been dumbed down into a slicked up version of the old MTV video awards show. Such a shame, when I saw Green Day win that year, I knew that was the moment the Grammy's became worthless and insignificant.

    The Grammys are nothing but a jew music biz shill.
    The music scene just gets worse and worse, bands aren't even promoted anymore, it's just bubble gum shit, rap nigs, and bland acoustic acts. I fucking can't wait until all the record companies go bankrupt.

    I liked KISS growing up, and some of their 70's stuff is pretty good, especially the "Destroyer" album. But like another poster said, there wasn't a category for hard rock/metal then.

    100% in agreement about Grateful Dead, though.

    Kiss was HUGE.. One of the best-selling most popular bands during their hey day.. But I agree about the Greatfull Dead.

    A old Dead Head joke..

    What did the Dead Head say when he ran out of pot? ..... "Fuck! This band sucks!!!"

    If Kiss died in a fiery plane crash in 1980 they'd be looked at in a totally different light. They held on waaaaay too long and were exposed as the talentless hacks they are. I liked 'em when I was a kid as well, but everything after "Alive" is utter shit.

    Oh, and it's not trolling to dismiss talent/widely respected/influential artists just because they've won Grammys?

    Name any field, and you could point to many great artists who were dissed.

    Heck, our very own Howard Stern was rejected by the Radio Hall of FAme for many years.

    I gotta say one of the saddest moments on MTV in the 80s was when Kiss, after Ace Frehley and Peter Criss were thrown out of the band went on MTV and were introduced without their make up for the first time. Seriously, half the band was

    I can remember JJ Jackson introducing the band:

    "Vinny Vincent: Lead guitarist, just joined the band a few months ago and will be fired from the band in about 3 months"

    "Eric Carr: drums, never was in a band before he joined Kiss" (Jackson actually said that in his introduction of Carr).

    Kiss really did go on too long and Gene Simmons just became a whore who would sell anything with the Kiss name on it for a buck.
