Nine Inch Nails’ Trent Reznor & Atticus Ross Win Country Music Association Award

Nine Inch Nails’ Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross have won a Country Music Association Award for Lil Nas X and Billy Ray Cyrus‘ hit single “Old Town Road“ due to the track featuring a sample of Nine Inch Nails‘ “34 Ghosts IV.“ That sample was previously unauthorized, but it has since been properly licensed with Reznor and Ross both receiving production credit. As a result, the two were honored when the remix won “Musical Event Of The Year” at the 53rd annual CMA Awards.

Marilyn Manson To Perform At Travis Scott’s Astroworld Festival

Marilyn Manson has been confirmed for Travis Scott’s Astroworld Festival. That event will be held tomorrow (November 9) at One NRG Park in Houston, TX. This news seems a bit odd, considering the festival will mostly feature rap/hip hop artists, but a number of rappers have cited Manson as an inspiration over the years, so that may explain why he was booked.

Judas Priest, Motörhead, Nine Inch Nails, Soundgarden, Etc. Nominated For 2020 Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame

The nominees have been revealed for the 2020 Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame induction. They include: Judas Priest, Motörhead, Nine Inch Nails, Soundgarden, Thin Lizzy, Pat Benatar, Dave Matthews Band, Depeche Mode, The Doobie Brothers, Whitney Houston, Kraftwerk, MC5, The Notorious B.I.G., Rufus featuring Chaka Khan, Todd Rundgren, and T. Rex. The fan vote is now open HERE. The ceremony will be held at the Public Auditorium in Cleveland, OH on May 2.

Soundgarden’s Kim Thayil told Billboard the following:

“I thought this is important, especially for the legacy of Soundgarden, and for Chris‘ legacy. It’s really important now to understand this from the perspective of the fans and to understand Soundgarden as both a current enterprise as well as a posthumous exercise.”

Judas Priest’s Rob Halford also talked to Billboard:

“It’s just another thrill, again, to be nominated, and so quickly because I know sometimes the nominations can get stretched out for quite a long period of time. So to get another one so quickly is wonderful and another great moment for the Priest and for our fans.”

Motörhead‘s Mikkey Dee also chatted with Billboard, despite the fact that him and Phil Campbell were left out of Mötorhead’s nomination:

“In my book, if anyone really deserves to be in that Hall of Fame, it’s Motörhead in so many ways because of the inspiration on thousands of bands.

Even the biggest of the biggest have been so influenced by Motörhead and Lemmy. It’s the real deal. If you talk to Ozzy, he thinks that Motörhead should have been in before Black Sabbath, even.”

He also added the following about him and Campbell getting snubbed:

“That is pure wrong, I would say, and I know Phil will be very disappointed, too. We’ve been carrying the flag for 25 years together, and actually brought Motörhead to what it was. We did 25 years out of the 40. The original band lasted just a few years (Clarke left in 1982, Taylor in 1984 and returned from 1987-92). They started it off, but as Lemmy said himself they wouldn’t have lasted another six months doing that lineup. I don’t think we would’ve been where we are today without the 25 years we spent touring.”
