i second this question. if they were doing a tribute/special ceremony type of thing, i would completely understand. and yes i know they have an album less than a year old and yes i feel they are deserving of recognition, given what they have done for the development of music.
mtv is like one of those people (most of us hate) who just yesterday realized how good zeppelin or the beatles were, yet they talk like they are the next big thing.
buttt, leave it to the money of the mainstream to ruin the uniquity of anything that is underground and good. my prime example is what bonaroo has become.
