But they should have! As a Layne Staley-less reincarnation of Alice in Chains continues to enjoy chart love and now a “Best Hard Rock Performance” Grammy nod out of this year’s Black Gives Way To Blue, we’re left with something of a bad taste in our mouth. We know it’s the Grammys and all but….dudes! In it’s own titanic way, Pissed Jeans’ King of Jeans comes much closer to rediscovering crystals of early 90s Seattle. It’s completely devastating yet ridiculously listenable! It leaves bruises on our relatively tender earlobes every time we listen! If a Sub Pop record can make its way into the nomination round, then why not this one?
Alice In Chains Receive Grammy Nomination, Pissed Jeans Do Not :(
