The nominations for the 2016 Grammy awards have finally arrived, and with them the inevitable heartbreaking snubs. In just about every category there are big names and influential artists who were not nominated for a 2016 Grammy. From Queen Bey to jazz upstart Kamasi Washington, Grammy 2016 snubs ruined the days of musicians from all sides of the industry.
 
Grammy nomination snubs are nothing new. From Prince’s “Purple Rain,” to the tectonic-shifting “Is This It” by The Strokes, vastly important albums have been either ignored or pushed to lesser categories by the clueless voting committee. If you’re upset about your favorite artist or album of the year being forgotten by powers that be, commiserate with us on this list of 2015 Grammy award snubs.

Don’t get it twisted, some of the 2016 Grammy nominees definitely deserve to be where they are. Who knew the Grammy committee knew who Courtney Barnett was? And how about Kendrick Lamar getting all the nominations?! Brilliant. Despite the nominees who truly deserve to their nods, there are plenty of 2016 Grammys snubs for artists, songs, and albums that got totally gypped. So many, in fact, that you could probably make an all new award show with the snubs from this year's Grammy awards.

Check out this list of the albums and musicians that were forgotten by the Grammy committee, and then vote on the 2016 Grammy nomination snubs. Feel free to add the best artists and albums that were not nominated for Grammys in 2016.
