The 11 Best Songs By Slayer

This past weekend was the Hollywood rock stars' excuse to throw lavish parties...better known to us common  people as the Grammys.  Probably the least credible award show on the planet but strangely over the past few years, it's become the most watchable of all the award shows.  Since they've stopped giving out awards during the telecast and focused more on filling the show with plenty of live performances, it's been surprisingly watchable.  Also, they've stopped catering to the 14-year-old American Idol audience.  With the Beach Boys, Glen Campbell, Tony Bennett, and Paul McCartney it was an odd irony that the Grammys focused so much on saluting the music industry's rock n roll roots while it still seemed stuck nominating current popular albums over truly ground breaking material.  The Foo Fighters and Bon Iver getting huge nods was pretty cool.  And did anyone notice that Isaac Brock of Modest Mouse got nominated for best rap song?  I get Adele's huge sweep of the awards...even though I think the album is a bit overrated.  When Arcade Fire won last year...I thought Grammy might have seen the light.  But when the announcements came out this year and Kanye's album was not nominated so they could ensure that subpar albums by Rihanna and Lady Gaga got noticed, I once again lost least in the Grammys...but not in music.  Dave Grohl saved that show.  Dave might be single handedly bringing rock back.  He's the only one who got a standing ovation for his speech.  He's the only person that performed THREE TIMES.  And he did it all wearing a Slayer t-shirt.  Long Live Dave Grohl!
