Avenged Sevenfold are on tour right now. But despite have a few days off after this Saturday, January 27, they won’t be jetting to New York on Sunday to see if they win the Grammy for “Best Rock Song.” Why? You might assume they’re just not going to bother since they’re probably going to lose (fellow nominees include Metallica and Foo Fighters, both of whom have more brand recognition/appeal to the old people who vote for these awards). But, to hear them tell at it least, there’s a different reason altogether:
The “Best Rock Song” category — and the “Best Metal Performance” category, for that matter — won’t be televised, but they will be live-streamed. I guess that’s not good enough for A7X. In any case, if you were looking forward to watching the band members sit in ironically-distressed tuxedos and try not to look disappointed when they lose, tough titty.
Despite this tragedy, MetalSucks will be covering the live stream on Sunday, which will also include a performance from Body Count. Watch this space.
