Petition launched to include Trevor Strnad in Grammys 'In Memoriam' segment

Sign this shit.

Trevor Strnad

In the wake of The Black Dahlia Murder frontman Trevor Strnad's passing, a new Change.org petition has been launched to include Strnad in the Grammy Awards "In Memoriam" segment.

Created by journalist, musician, and artist manager, Bradley Zorgdrager, the petition doesn't beat around the bush:

"The Grammy Awards have a longstanding blindspot for metal, recently snubbing influential metal figures Joey Jordison (Slipknot) and Jon Zazula (Megaforce Records) from their In Memoriam segment.

"The metal community just lost a hugely influential and universally loved member, Trevor Strnad, best known as vocalist of The Black Dahlia Murder, as well as for his encyclopedic knowledge of metal and fun-loving, kind spirit.

"Grammy producer Ken Winston apologized for leaving people out, and we as a metal community demand — nay, kindly ask as he would want us to — Trevor Strnad's inclusion in next year's ceremony."

Since the Grammys couldn't even be bothered to Slayer's Jeff Hanneman or Pantera's Vinnie Paul, the petition's prospects appear grim, but we'll hope for the best.

hasn't he suffered enough?


anonymous 13 days ago

if justin lowe wasn't included this one's a long shot. RIP


anonymous 13 days ago

Never will happen


anonymous 13 days ago

Haha Justin Lowe was in a low tier level band. Black dahlia murder was almost headed towards legacy status in another couple years they would've been at the level of cannibal corpse and obituary. I think Trevor has a better shot. RIP


anonymous 13 days ago

Yes, getting Strnad's face/name featured for 3 seconds in an arbitrary vid at the celebrity-worship fest masquerading as being "music centric" is exactly where we should be putting our efforts/energies right now.

With all due respect, I really don't think Trevor could give a f*ck if he was mentioned on the Grammys.


anonymous 13 days ago

How corporate sellout of the metal community to do


anonymous 13 days ago

dont they have to win a grammy for that


lake_flaccid 13 days ago

I signed it but I am 100% certain they will ignore it Grammy's will never back a band with a name like "Black Dahlia Murder"


anonymous 13 days ago

I am sure that is what Trevor would have wanted, to be recognized by an award ceremony that does not recognize the type of music he played and loved.

Signed. Amazing talent that left this earth way too soon.


anonymous 13 days ago

Lol at adults talking about selling out. Back to the cash register at your aunt's failing video rental store at your small town in Kansas.


anonymous 13 days ago

I'm strictly listening to TBDM discography


anonymous 13 days ago

lol they won't.


anonymous 13 days ago

If you need a petition to include him in the In Memorium he's just not known well enough to be included. The Grammys IM lists whoever they deem was famous enough to be mentioned. I don't see them including Trevor but it's worth a shot.

They're not going to do it because the Grammy's hate to see a girl boss win.
