15. Pearl Jam Ethering The Grammys In Their Acceptance Speech


Year: 1996

One of the worst things that can happen as host is having a guest who undermines the party. That's exactly what Pearl Jam lead singer Eddie Vedder did when his group scored a Best Rock Performance win for "Spin the Black Circle." Explaining that the only reason he showed up to the Grammys was because his dead dad would've enjoyed it, Vedder gave the following underwhelming endorsement: "I don't know what this means. I don't think it means anything. That's just how I feel." Gangster.
