Josh Homme says “fuck Imagine Dragons and fuck the Grammys”

Queens of the Stone Age frontman Josh Homme has finally addressed last month’s debacle at the Grammys, as NME points out.

If you recall, the all-star superjam featuring Homme, Nine Inch Nails’ Trent Reznor, Dave Grohl, and Lindsey Buckingham was cut short in favor of commercials. Reznor responded almost immediately, writing on Twitter, “Music’s biggest night… to be disrespected. A heartfelt FUCK YOU guys.” While the Grammys Executive Producer has since apologized, there still appears to be ill will among the rockers.

Case in point: during QOTSA’s concert in Houston on Sunday night, Homme took a shot at the awards show as well as Imagine Dragons, who beat out QOSTA for “Best Rock Performance” at the Grammys. Homme introduced the band’s performance of “I Appear Missing” by telling the audience that it was written by Imagine Dragons. Met with heckles, he added, “Fuck everything. Fuck the man. Fuck Imagine Dragons and fuck the Grammys.”

Watch footage below (Homme’s mini-diatribe begins at the 0:30 mark).

I guess when your claim to fame is that you once did a song that featured Dave Grohl, it allows you to be a total douche bag whenever you want. Such a shitty fucking band. I remember when they played ozzfest and they sucked ass. Josh homme is such a pretentious asshole. Just go away already.

QOTSA are such a great band. They should be glad they didn’t win. Half the time the Grammys give awards to the wrong artist anyway. Led Zeppelin gets an award 34 years after they broke up. Black Sabbath finally acknowledged. Remember the 1st metal performance went to Jethro Tull. Total joke show!

I don’t understand what is so provocative or telling about what Homme said. It was a joke. And now it makes music news?
