After Nine Inch Nails’ performance with Queens of the Stone Age, Dave Grohl and Lindsey Buckingham got cut short at the end of Sunday night’s Grammy Awards broadcast, Trent Reznor sent a harsh Tweet that included “Music’s biggest night… to be disrespected,” a riff on the event’s tagline. Oh, there was also “a heartfelt F*** YOU guys,” of course. Turns out that it crossed Vampire Weekend drummer Chris Tomson’s mind that the NIN frontman’s anger might be directed towards his band, as their album Modern Vampires of the City had earlier won the Best Alternative Album award over NIN’s Hesitation Marks.
“We saw that last night and we were worried for a second that it was about us because Nine Inch Nails were in our category,” Tomson said in a recent interview. “So we thought, ‘Oh, damn. Is Trent Reznor pissed at the Dubs?'”
