So while everyone has their own comments and complaints about last night’s Grammy show, there’s really only one big question on my mind. I mean sure, it’s a bummer that the Dave Brubeck tribute lasted all of 45 seconds. And sure, Frank Ocean‘s performance of his odd tune “Forrest Gump” won him over about negative 47 new fans. And sure, the Delta ad cutting off Tom Morello‘s guitar solo during the end performance was completely absurd. And sure, Chris Brown is a piece of shit that shouldn’t be allowed anywhere near the building. And sure, Maroon 5 just continues to suck more and more. And sure, LL Cool J said the word “hashtag” about 92 times. But my question is – where was the biggest musical star of 2012? Meat Loaf? Seriously, I don’t know if there’s any piece of music I’ve watched or listened to more this year than Mr. Bitch Tits’ performance at that Romney rally. It is without a doubt, THE top most notable musical moment of the year. Let’s revisit that once again shall we?
Honestly though, couldn’t we have wheeled the old coot out for the final performance so he could sing the chorus of “No Sleep Till Brooklyn?’ Now that would have been enter-fucking-tainment. And just in case you thought his amazing singing ability was only in such fine form with Romney because he had the empowering spirit of Jesus and the Republican party behind him, then you obviously haven’t seen his angelic performance in Australia from a couple years ago. If you don’t want to watch the whole clip then just start with his brilliant tone at :55 seconds in, then skip to his wonderful resonance at 3:00, and whatever you do don’t miss his spot-on performance at 5:41. I know – it’s really been 20 years since that song came out? He really hasn’t lost a beat. Way to drop the ball again Grammys – geesh.
