NIN Frontman Trent Reznor to Grammys: ‘F*CK YOU’

Some of the biggest names rock closed out the 56th annual Grammy Awards, including Nine Inch Nails frontman Trent Reznor, Queens of the Stone Age, Dave Grohl and Lindsey Buckingham of Fleetwood Mac, but producers of the show began to roll the credits before the encore had finished.

Afterward, an upset Reznor took to Twitter to blast CBS and the show’s producers for pulling the plug on the all-star rock performance.
