Here are the 2010 Grammy Nominees in the leading categories. Thanks to AOL. I don’t really have much to say about these, because I guess I’m not representative of the majority of music listeners. But I’m a blogger, so fuck it. Here are my thoughts:

-AC/DC put an album out this year?

-Everyone in the Best Rock Album category is way past their prime and/or irrelevant

-I don’t think I’ve ever really listened to a full Taylor Swift song. I can tell you that her face bothers me.

-Best Rap Performance looks okay. I like Mos Def, but what’s he doing on there?

-What’s a Zac Brown Band?

-Maxwell still sings? I thought he passed away in 1990 in a snowmobile accident

-I predict Gaga will win big

– Go Cudi! (Heard he’s got 3 nominations overall)

Okay that’s pretty much all I thought while looking at these. I spend every day of my life seeking out new music, yet seeing the Grammy nominees makes me feel out of the loop. Sad, no matter how you look at it. What do you think?
