Petition launched to include Trevor Strnad in Grammys 'In Memoriam' segment

Sign this shit.

Trevor Strnad

In the wake of The Black Dahlia Murder frontman Trevor Strnad's passing, a new Change.org petition has been launched to include Strnad in the Grammy Awards "In Memoriam" segment.

Created by journalist, musician, and artist manager, Bradley Zorgdrager, the petition doesn't beat around the bush:

"The Grammy Awards have a longstanding blindspot for metal, recently snubbing influential metal figures Joey Jordison (Slipknot) and Jon Zazula (Megaforce Records) from their In Memoriam segment.

"The metal community just lost a hugely influential and universally loved member, Trevor Strnad, best known as vocalist of The Black Dahlia Murder, as well as for his encyclopedic knowledge of metal and fun-loving, kind spirit.

"Grammy producer Ken Winston apologized for leaving people out, and we as a metal community demand — nay, kindly ask as he would want us to — Trevor Strnad's inclusion in next year's ceremony."

Since the Grammys couldn't even be bothered to Slayer's Jeff Hanneman or Pantera's Vinnie Paul, the petition's prospects appear grim, but we'll hope for the best.

hasn't he suffered enough?

anonymous 5/12/2022 9:37:26 AM

if justin lowe wasn't included this one's a long shot. RIP

anonymous 5/12/2022 9:38:05 AM

Never will happen

anonymous 5/12/2022 9:40:41 AM

Haha Justin Lowe was in a low tier level band. Black dahlia murder was almost headed towards legacy status in another couple years they would've been at the level of cannibal corpse and obituary. I think Trevor has a better shot. RIP

anonymous 5/12/2022 10:30:16 AM

Yes, getting Strnad's face/name featured for 3 seconds in an arbitrary vid at the celebrity-worship fest masquerading as being "music centric" is exactly where we should be putting our efforts/energies right now.

Petitioning The Empty Sky plays softly

anonymous 5/12/2022 10:31:19 AM

f*ck the Grammy's although I appreciate the sentiment

anonymous 5/12/2022 11:00:54 AM

ATB could play the same venues / open the same major tours as TBDM and have the same pull. RIP

anonymous 5/12/2022 11:01:23 AM

^ nailed it

anonymous 5/12/2022 11:13:01 AM

That's nice, it ain't happeninnn

Vodka Veins here, watching my hellfest 2000 dvd all day and yelling at my mom to bring me food.

anonymous 5/12/2022 11:16:33 AM

With all due respect, I really don't think Trevor could give a f*ck if he was mentioned on the Grammys.

anonymous 5/12/2022 11:39:37 AM

How corporate sellout of the metal community to do

anonymous 5/12/2022 11:50:03 AM

dont they have to win a grammy for that

lake_flaccid 5/12/2022 11:52:50 AM

I signed it but I am 100% certain they will ignore it Grammy's will never back a band with a name like "Black Dahlia Murder"

anonymous 5/12/2022 11:54:38 AM

I am sure that is what Trevor would have wanted, to be recognized by an award ceremony that does not recognize the type of music he played and loved.

_d0thack_ 5/12/2022 12:17:59 PM

Signed. Amazing talent that left this earth way too soon.

anonymous 5/12/2022 12:38:45 PM

Lol at adults talking about selling out. Back to the cash register at your aunt's failing video rental store at your small town in Kansas.

anonymous 5/12/2022 1:17:51 PM

I'm strictly listening to TBDM discography

anonymous 5/12/2022 1:29:22 PM

lol they won't.

anonymous 5/12/2022 1:49:37 PM

If you need a petition to include him in the In Memorium he's just not known well enough to be included. The Grammys IM lists whoever they deem was famous enough to be mentioned. I don't see them including Trevor but it's worth a shot.

anonymous 5/12/2022 3:45:28 PM

anonymous 1 minute ago Waaaaaaaaaaaaah waaaaaaaaaaaah -LG groomers. SHUT UP RETARD Settle down groomer.

rick_tocchet 5/12/2022 4:26:59 PM

f*ck the Grammys. Trevor was a straight white male in a metal band. He wont be included.

anonymous 5/12/2022 5:26:53 PM

Shut the f*ck up ej. You are the Trind of the news comments.

anonymous 5/12/2022 7:22:40 PM

RIP to the dude and all, but metal is supposed to be outsider music, not Grammy fodder.

anonymous 5/12/2022 7:41:39 PM

20 years ago I never thought this would be a discussion. Come a way ain't it

anonymous 5/12/2022 7:42:01 PM

For better or worse

anonymous 5/12/2022 8:30:44 PM

Damn I remember having a great time seeing them headline Summer Slaughter back in 08. Wtf man Trevor kicked ass

anonymous 5/13/2022 7:03:37 AM

They're not going to do it because the Grammy's hate to see a girl boss win.

anonymous 5/13/2022 7:50:47 AM

anonymous 5/13/2022 8:02:43 AM

The Black Dahlia Murder should get a hold of Jonathan Davis from KORN fame to do some vokills for them-the guy has a ton of grit in his voice when he does his "Skat style"(bbbbbbbrroppa bee bop,bbbbbbbrrrrrrrrrrrr-roppa-poppa boppa bee bop-*twist-twist*-bbbbbbbrrrrrrrrrrrr-bbbbbbb-roppa-bee bop-bbbbbbbrrrrrrrrrrrr-roppa-poppa boppa bee bop.

What's the opposite of this? In and in? Wtf does "out and out" mean? ^^^ the time you spent writing this and waiting for a response was time you could have spent looking up what it means.
