And The Award Goes To...

And The Award Goes To...

 It's 1989, your half in the bag—full of pizza and beer while sitting in your living room at your very own Grammy party. You've decided to go all-in because Metallica is up for Best Hard Rock/Heavy Metal recording, and there is no way they're not going to win. The time has come as Alice Cooper makes his way to the stage and opens the envelope—"and the award for Best Hard Rock/Heavy Metal Recording goes to....JETHRO TULL!". You look at your friends the same way everyone in the audience is looking at one another—in utter confusion and disbelief. Fast forward a few decades and the disbelief still stands, but are awards and award shows any more or less important than they used to be? Does it matter if your favorite musician has ten awards or even any at all? Is a Grammy more important or prestigious than a VMA? We talk about this famous mishap, and so much more on episode 24 of your girlfriend's favorite music podcast.
