The Grammy awards haven’t been kind to metal fans as of late, and they’re doing an equally as terrible job with the the iconic metal musicians who’ve passed away, too.
You might remember last year’s “In Memoriam” video when they left out two-time Grammy winner Jeff Hanneman, co-founding guitarist of Slayer, which was a complete travesty. Well, the 57th Grammy awards fail again, and don’t include Dave “Oderus Urungus” Brockie from GWAR, and Wayne Static of Static-X, both of whom passed away in 2014.
GWAR were nominated twice for a Grammy award, their first in 1993 for their “Phallus in Wonderland” video.
UPDATE: While it’s a shame that they weren’t included in the “In Memoriam” telecast, both Brockie and Static were included in a blog feature posted on The Grammy’s website.
