Yet if U2 won a grammy today we'd all be saying how great it is and how this PROVES that they're still at the top of their game...

right?


 :D :D :D
Not for me.  I don't need award shows to tell me what's good music or not.  Why do people put so much emphasis on these dumb awards?  Sure, a win may sell a few thousand more records, but big whoop.  I guess U2 gets no credit for continously selling out, or close to selling out sometimes, the biggest stadiums in the world.

Over the decades the Grammy's have been hysterical.  I remember when rock artists never got nominated never mind win.  When I was youngin I'd watch it sometimes and get upset that some great rock band didn't win got beat out by some elevator shlock music artist.  I learned early on the Grammy's were a joke.  Ask Bruce Springsteen and his fans (me included) how many times he got shafted out of a win, and he's one of the greatest song writers ever.  

I don't think U2 is too heartbroken about this, especially with the most grammy's ever won a by group under their belts.

random.. but did anyone else think Pink was AMAZING?

Sorry, no!  She belongs in a Vegas stage show with that act.

Well I found the show to be boring-nothing too inspiring there! I think No Line is a beautiful album with so many layers no matter how many people dislike it . It doesn't need awards to be great. Look at what was winning!  No Line is above  a lot of that stuff.

If I wanted to see a person hanging from the ceiling I would have gotten tickets to Ringling Bros. for heaven's sake! Also, the 3D thing- the live audience had glasses but what about the rest of us. It was just a blurred mess to me. Was I absent the day 3D glasses were handed out for this telecast?!!  :D :D :D

I always flash back to the 97 MTV music video awards when I see something like this; a bunch of flavor of the month female rappers came out and did "Ladies Night" while wearing horrible Cleopatra type costumes; then U2 came out and did one of the best versions of Please I have ever heard.

NLOTH stands on its own merits.

U2 has deserved some of the Grammys they have won and Achtung SHOULD have won.  I think HTDAAB won because Vertigo was everywhere on TV and the RIAA doesnt need much of an excuse to hand a recognizable name like u2 an award.  But NLOTH won exactly the number of Grammy awards that it deserved.

Here's a history of the Grammy's.  Look when 'rock' started finally getting recognized and who won.  It's a total joke! 
You can do a lot of research there if you're so inclined.

Hmmmmm I hate to say this, but as much as I love Slowhand, No. AB was a better album.

Very much so. I actually liked Clapton's blues covers album "From the Cradle" better than Unplugged. But he got the sentimental vote and I don't begrudge him for it.

I like kings of leon and the song that won, i also like their old stuff and have seen them in concert but i would like to see them around as long as U2 have been and still produce the best music of all. When i went to see U2 i have never experienced anything like it, i was on that much of a high in the show that when i came out i was depressed because i would have to wait a long time to see them again.
When i came out from the KOL concert i was like yerr that was good, played well there was NOT same feeling as when i came out from wembley to see U2 and i believe they will never be able to reach that and make their audiences have goosebumps all over their bodies when watching them in concert or even on youtube

That is a hard one to argue, kind of like the whole Heath Ledge/Robert Downy Oscar race-- easier to argue well after the fact.

This much I know, Al Pacino should have won the best actor academy award in 1975.
