I wouldn't mind if The Killers won either.

Green Day will probably win most of them though.



My God, isn't that blasphemy!!!!

What's so odd about them saying 3/5ths?  Is it because Adler was the original drummer...?


Anyway... I don't mean to sound like I'm dissing the band or the fans or anything, because I'm not.  But I'd like to remind you all that they might not win by a 'landslide' and remember that they are not the only band in the world.

What I mean is, the Grammys have been rigged for years, and someone like Maroon 5 is probably more likely to win.  That's jsut how it is, like it or not.  I really hope they prove me wrong this year though.  I would like to see them take home 3.

If they should lose, I hope American Idiot wins.

Either way, they've got tough competition.  Metallica and Green Day have paid their dues long before Velvet Revolver, as bands.  That is, if you don't count GnR and STP.  But I'm saying that more established bands might win.  Not sure.

Isn't it a bit early for a grammy?  Grammys are what the old fart washed up rockers get.  VR is 'too cool' for a grammy, imo.  Grammy comes later, when they've had like 5 albums out.  Grammys just aren't hip, and I don't think they ever were.

Anyone get what I'm saying?

congrats vr, now in two weeks they have sold 100,000 thousand copies of their album.. This week it's 51,000, hopefully with the grammys they will get more airtime and sell tons of records..

COntraband should be album of the year, it was the only album to debut at number one, plus it has two number one singles..

ROCK ON VR, THE BEST DAMN BAND


Didn't Beastie Boys debut at 1?  Knocking out VR?

Seeing the sad state the music industry has been in for the past decade now, it's about time 'rock' had a serious resurging.  Who better to lead it than 'Velvet Revolver'?!  :cool:  :beer:

The Grammys should definitely give VR a chance because they simply deserve it but then again there's Hoobastank and Metallica so it should be a tough competition.
Personally I don't give a rats ass about Hoobastank but considering the music scene at this point it should be a tough choice.

I agree. I think VR deserve it so I'm hoping they win or if they don't I assume it will probably be Green Days - American Idiot or Metallica but for now my hopes are for VR.

Fuck I just realized Vertigo was in the same category as FTP. There's no way VR wins that one. DAMNIT I HATE U2.

I dunno about that. From what I hear, U2's new album is flunking bad. It sold well it's first week but is now in the pits. And that song sucks, anyway. FTP is one of the best songs I've heard in a long time and I'll be damned if it get's beat out by the same sounding shit that U2 has put out for the past 10 years.  :evil:

By the way, does anybody know if they will be perfoming at the Grammy's yet?

They say it contains 3/5 of the original line up because it doesnt have Izzy or Axl, so that would make it 3/5

Offline VRyan

but in some ways it doesnt make that much sense because Matt wasn't part of the ORIGINAL line up, Steven was
