This year’s 61st Annual GRAMMYs failed to include some of rock/metal music’s notable musicians who passed away over the last year including Pantera/Hellyeah’s drummer Vinnie Paul, We Came As Romans’ vocalist Kyle Pavone, All That Remains’ guitarist Oli Herbert, The Cranberries’ singer Dolores O’Riordan, Lil Peep and rapper Jahseh Ofrey a.k.a. XXXTentacion. This is a huge let down to fans of all of the above mentioned musicians.

Although, all the mentioned names are included within the GRAMMYs online website for their In Memoriam, they failed to televise their photos or names within the broadcast as they seemingly always failed to leave out the rock/metal categories on tv as well. I mean they did fail to remember Slayer’s late Jeff Hanneman in 2013 when he passed away as well and this year was no different with the several artists left out of the televised In Memoriam tribute reel.

What are your thoughts on this situation? See the GRAMMYs full list of of In Memoriam on their website, HERE.

Fans are outraged and speaking out and voicing their opinions via Twitter, see some of the Tweet below:
