“Cut Me Some Slack” Claims Best Rock Song Grammy

It should come as no surprise that a superstar collaboration created an award-winning song.

It should come as no surprise that “Cut Me Some Slack,” written and performed by Dave Grohl, Paul McCartney, Kris Novoselic and Pat Smear won the Grammy Award for Best Rock Song.

Far more newsworthy than its win, however, was the fact that the foursome only saluted two of its fellow nominees during the acceptance speech. While they credited The Rolling Stones (nominated for “Doom & Gloom”) and Black Sabbath (“God is Dead?”), the winners made no mention of Gary Clark, Jr and Muse, who were nominated for “Ain’t Messin ‘Round” and “Panic Station,” respectively.
