It's gonna be a joke. They still haven't nominated the rock category yet. I can already predict the category. Jonas Brothers, Fall Out Boy, Panic At The Disco, Tokyo Hotel, and probably the Jonas Brothers again. There is probably not going to be a Metal category. In the Male Video Category it's all those shitty rappers that have made hip-hop only about Money, Sex, and Drugs or those faggy R&B guys.

I don't know if good music is dying or is the world just loosing it's taste in everything and only paying attention to looks and if MTV likes them.

i had poor taste in music in the past so i cant judge the world for that. i havent been able to trust MTV awards since they gave the movie of the year award to Napoleon Dynamite when they funded it. not that i trusted them before that anyway...

yea i was going to say that MTV is probably the last place you will find good music, especially bands.

might i suggest the discovery channel or comedy central? :)

oh wait, MTV owns them too :(

Anti...

The first metal Grammy in 1989 was given to Jethro Tull instead of Metallica (who was also nominated) and proved how absolutely clueless the Grammy voting comittee actually is.

(From Wikipedia.com)

Jethro Tull returned strongly in 1987 with Crest of a Knave. With Vettese absent (Anderson contributed the synth programming) and the band relying more heavily on Barre's electric guitar than they had since the early 1970s, the album was a critical and commercial success. Shades of their earlier electronic excursions were still present, however, as three of the album's songs again utilised a drum machine. The band won the 1989 Grammy Award for Best Hard Rock/Metal Performance, beating the favourite Metallica and their ...And Justice For All album. The award was particularly controversial as many did not consider Jethro Tull hard rock, much less heavy metal. Under advisement from their manager, who told them they had no chance of winning, no one from the band attended the award ceremony.[10] In response to the criticism they received over the award, the band took out an advertisement in a British music periodical with a picture of a flute lying amid a pile of iron re-bars and the line, "THE FLUTE IS A HEAVY METAL INSTRUMENT."[11] In response to an interview question about the controversy, Ian Anderson quipped, "Well, we do sometimes play our mandolins very loudly." In 2007, the win was named one of the ten biggest upsets in Grammy history by Entertainment Weekly[12] (In 1992, when Metallica finally won the Grammy in the category, Metallica drummer Lars Ulrich joked, "First thing we're going to do is thank Jethro Tull for not putting out an album this year," a play on a Grammy comment by Paul Simon some years before thanking Stevie Wonder for the same thing, allowing him to win.)

Exactly. Personally I agree with the fact the only talk about women, how much money they have and their cars but its still got a good beat behind it. And people who listen to rap probably think the same about the music you listen to/make.

You need to work on your reading comprehension; he said the MTV music award will host only crappy rappers not that all rappers are crappy

I don't think so. It came across as though he was saying that all rappers are crappy.

I remember MTV used to put all this music that was very mainstream, and like around 2000 i remember At The Drive-In said that they are happy that they are on mainstream because they are alternative and stuff and Cedric said that it would be nice for a change of music that is going thru MTV and radio, now fast-foward a couple of years and now thats all you hear in MTV.

and now it is so overwhelmed with just alternative rock and experimental rock with a mix of very mainstream rap and pop.
