10 Reasons Why 2017 Totally Sucked
2017 is almost over! Let’s have a look back and remember why we won’t miss 2017 after its gone.
The Grammys had a rough 2017 during the show’s highly anticipated collaboration between Metallica and Lady Gaga. MetalliGaga performed “Moth Into Flame” at the ceremony, but ran into technical difficulties when James Hetfield’s mic turned out to be dead. Papa Het’s mic came back on during the second verse, but that didn’t stop the Metallica frontman from being visibly pissed off once the song came to an end.
We lost some legends this year and 2017 was particularly brutal on the rock world. Soundgarden’s Chris Cornell and Linkin Park’s Chester Bennington both committed suicide weeks apart from each other, fueling a mental health debate which lasted for much of the year. The music world also suffered the loss of Tom Petty and AC/DC guitarist Malcolm Young, among many others.
2017 was also the year of the sexual misconduct "watershed moment," led by the takedown of media mogul Harvey Weinstein. Accusations and admissions of sexual harassment and assault began coming from all sides of the entertainment industry, including music. Brand New’s Jesse Lacey and Pierce the Veil’s Mike Fuentes were both accused on misconduct with underage fans, with Fuentes announcing his departure from Pierce the Veil in response.
