bittnerhaleEarlier today, Shadows Fall drummer Jason Bittner expressed his outrage at the Grammys for giving Halestorm the award for “Best Hard Rock/Metal Performance” for their track, “Love Bites (So Do I)” from their 2012 album The Strange Case of…

Halestorm won the award over Anthrax, Iron Maiden, Lamb of God, Marilyn Manson, and Megadeth.

Bittner wrote on his personal facebook page:

“Well, I know I’m gonna get a lot of shit for this but I just don’t care anymore…. How the FUCK does Maiden, Megadeth, LOG, and my ‘other family’ ANTHRAX lose the Grammys to ________ (not gonna say the name)!!!! Shit is rotten in the music business and this proves it!!! And I thought the JETHRO TULL thing in 1989 was bad enough but this beats it hands down!!!”

Of course, he is referencing Metallica losing the very first Hard Rock/Metal Grammy back in 1989 to the very un-metal Jethro Tull.
