Grammy Nods Are In: Wait WTF OK GO Is Nominated For GRAMMY?



HOLY FRIGGIN' CRAP!!!

OK Go's video for "Here It Goes Again" aka the "Treadmill Video" was just nominated in Category #107 for Best Short Form Music Video at the 49th Annual GRAMMY Awards.

THE POWER OF THE INTERNET IN FULL EFFECT.

When I first saw this video I knew it would be an instant classic. I HAD NO IDEA it would even be considered for a GRAMMY let alone be NOMINATED for one.
