Grammy Nominations

A lot of old timers, including three nods to Sir Paul. Bruce Springsteen is a surprise, but not as surprising as Coldplay not getting their due.

So, here are the categories: Shall we go ahead and pick the winners? I haven't had time to really think about the nominees, but the one award McCartney will win is in the "Best Pop" category. He won't win the others. Still...

My Calls. But I will probably be wrong since the grammy people have no taste at all.

Album: U2
Record: Green day
Song : hmm ... teh boss (and whats the difference in song and record?)
New Artist: Keane
pop: all pop sucks now
Rap: Eminen (actaully a good album)
Rock: U2 (coldplay sucks)
Country: i dont knwo any of them
R&B: hmm dont know any of them
Electronic: Well its a who's who of elctronic music, I'd guess daft punk.
And the hardest to pick, alternative: a toss up between white stripes and beck. Both awsome albums.

Anyway I know I'll be all worng.
