The Killers weren't even mentioned on the 2021 Grammy Awards nomination list. However, if something becomes clear, they should win an award for how well they channeled their inner trump card on Twitter.
Among the many responses from non-nominees, The Killers decided to bring Trump-related satire to the table. And if post comments ever come up with something, their followers are definitely there for that.
They tweeted (all in capital letters for emphasis): “Observers were not allowed to enter the counting rooms. We won the Grammys and got tons of legal votes. Bad things happened that our observers were not allowed to see. Never happened before. Dozens of ballot papers were sent to people who never asked! “To top it off, they added hashtags, #riggedgrammys, and #wewon.
On the flip side, there are artists who don't take their lack of success at the 2021 Grammys at all well. After not being nominated for a single category this year, The Weeknd tweeted in the face of adversity, criticizing the Grammys critics as corrupt.
He said, “The Grammys remain corrupt. You owe me, my fans and the industry transparency … "
Given the mainstream success of his album After Hours, as well as his single "Blinding Lights" – a song you guaranteed to have heard without really trying this year, it's no surprise The Weeknd doesn't piss.
Later that year, the Las Vegas-based band has been undoubtedly prolific in their music production, releasing their latest album, Imploding The Mirage, with notable singles, "Caution" and "My Own Soul's Warning".
Granted that their album and singles alone did not reach the same chart highs as The Weeknd, none of them managed to get a single nomination for this year.
But when you think about it, it's pretty hard to be salty, considering how much The Killers it has actually killed in the past two decades. Especially with “Mr. Brightside ’lately announced that it had exceeded one billion streams on Spotify.
