As inspiring as this underworld of beautiful losers may be, it would be wrong to suggest that all disgruntled writers-in are helpful. Some are just silly or willful: voting the beautifully abstracted sound art of Tim Hecker into the Jazz category, naming Darkbuster as World Music, or classifying Nickelback’s “Rockstar” as a “song.” Others see the blank field as the only place to register their raw dismay, voting “you’ve got to be kidding me, fuck” for Breakthrough Act, or “all of these bands suck” for Indie Act, or a blunt voicing of “none” for Punk Act — which is actually kind of awesome. Still, for these unsung voters and their unsung heroes, it’s not a matter of whether you win or lose, but rather, how you prove to yourself that everybody else’s taste in music sucks but yours. For this, we commend you.
