Each year, the Grammy’s pays tribute to all the musicians we’ve lost in a special video segment aired during the ceremony.
However, despite Slipknot being past Grammy winners themselves and Jordan tragically passing away last year at the age of just 46, the band’s founding drummer was criminally overlooked.
This year’s In Memoriam segment honoured the likes of Charlie Watts (The Rolling Stones), Mark Lanegan (Screaming Trees), Dusty Hill (ZZ Top) and, of course, Taylor Hawkins. But there was no mention of Jordison.
“The Grammys omitting Joey Jordison is disgraceful,” one fan wrote on Twitter.
While another added, “no tribute to joey jordison at the #GRAMMYs should be illegal”.
During his tenure with the ‘Knot, Jordison was nominated for seven Grammys, and ultimately won one for Best Metal Performance with his bandmates for ‘Before I Forget’ in 2006.
Check out some fan reactions to the sitch below.

Way to go, #GRAMMYs, for forgetting Joey Jordison, former drummer of the Grammy AWARD-WINNING band Slipknot. Does it kill you not to mention metal artists who made an impact on other musicians’ lives???
