Apple Music: Watch Electric GRAMMY Rock Performances

Rock out with Bruce Springsteen, the Foo Fighters, Arcade Fire, White Stripes, and more, by watching past jamming GRAMMY performances on Apple Music

GRAMMYs/Jan 22, 2018 - 08:59 pm

The GRAMMY Awards do indeed rock. Need the high-octane proof? You'll find it in a special curated batch of great rock moments from Music's Biggest Night, featuring the likes of Bruce Springsteen, Metallica and the White Stripes to the Police, Melissa Etheridge and the Foo Fighters.

Thanks to the Recording Academy and Apple Music's exclusive commemorative video collection in celebration of the 60th GRAMMY Awards, you can now binge-watch these amazing GRAMMY telecast performances.

The collection features metal band Metallica's slammin' 1989 version of their anti-war opus "One" at the 31st GRAMMY Awards. For a quieter performance, catch Beck at the 39th GRAMMYs for his "Where It's At." And who could forget Bob Dylan's Soy-Bombed performance of "Love Sick" at the commemorative 40th GRAMMY Awards?

There's Bruce Springsteen's uplifting performance of "The Rising" at the 45th GRAMMY Awards, along with Coldplay and the New York Philharmonic's sonically masterful rendering of "Politik" the same year. Marking a signature moment, the 45th GRAMMYs also featured a super group of rock royalty paying tribute to the Clash, with Springsteen, Elvis Costello, Dave Grohl, Steven Van Zandt, and Tony Kanal presiding over "London Calling."

At the 46th GRAMMYs, the White Stripes played their now-classic "Seven Nation Army." Representing the female badaes of the genre, Joss Stone and Melissa Etheridge teamed for a medley of "Crybaby/Piece Of My Heart" at the 47th GRAMMY Awards.

The Police shone the red light on the 49th GRAMMY Awards when they performed their classic hit "Roxanne." The next year, at the milestone 50th GRAMMYs, the Foo Fighters got down and dirty for a performance of "The Pretender." Arcade Fire showed what they were made of at the 53rd GRAMMY Awards with "Ready To Start."

The Lumineers turned the genre on its head with a little alternative flare when they performed "Ho Hey" at the 55th GRAMMYs. That same year, the Black Keys hooked up with the inimitable Dr. John and the Preservation Hall Jazz Band for "Lonely Boy."

Imagine Dragons literally lit the stage on fire at the 56th GRAMMYs with Kendrick Lamar for an explosive reimagining of "Radioactive." Rounding out the collection is Alabama Shakes' earthshaking version of "Don't Wanna Fight" at the 58th GRAMMY Awards.

All of these performances and more are available now, only on Apple Music. Watch on

The 60th GRAMMY Awards will take place at New York City's Madison Square Garden on Sunday, Jan. 28. The telecast will be broadcast live on CBS at 7:30–11 p.m. ET/4:30–8 p.m. PT.

Allen Hughes' "The Defiant Ones" Wins Best Music Film | 2018 GRAMMY


Allen Hughes' "The Defiant Ones" Wins Best Music Film | 2018 GRAMMY

Director Allen Hughes' four-part documentary takes home Best Music Film honors for its portrayal of the unlikely partnership that changed the music business

GRAMMYs/Jan 29, 2018 - 02:09 am

The team behind The Defiant Ones celebrated a big win for Best Music Film at the 60th GRAMMY Awards. The crew awarded include director Allen Hughes and producers Sarah Anthony, Fritzi Horstman, Broderick Johnson, Gene Kirkwood, Andrew Kosove, Laura Lancaster, Michael Lombardo, Jerry Longarzo, Doug Pray & Steven Williams.

In a year rife with quality music documentaries and series, the bar has been set high for this dynamic category. The Defiant Ones is a four-part HBO documentary telling the story of an unlikely duo taking the music business by storm seems better suited for fantastical pages of a comic book, but for engineer-turned-mogul Jimmy Iovine and super-producer Dr. Dre, it's all truth.The Defiant Ones recounts their histories, their tribulations and their wild success. These include first-hand accounts from those who were there in Iovine's early days, such as Bruce Springsteen and U2's Bono, as well as those on board when Dre and Iovine joined forces, such as Snoop Dogg and Eminem.

The competition was stiff as the category was filled with compelling films such as One More Time With Feeling, Two Trains Runnin', Soundbreaking, and Long Strange Trip.

Original Misfits Unleash One Night Only L.A. Reunion Show

Dark punk legends to play first show with Glenn Danzig and Jerry Only since last year's Riot Fest reunion

GRAMMYs/Aug 22, 2017 - 05:28 am

There's big news today for punk-rock fans aware that the Misfits made much more than just T-shirts.

The massively influential punk band announced a special show touted as the "only 2017 performance in this world… or any world" and billed as "The Original Misfits" in Los Angeles at the Forum on Dec. 30.

This will be the first Misfits show featuring original singer Glenn Danzig and original bassist Jerry Only with long-time guitarist Doyle Wolfgang von Frankenstein since the band reunited for a pair of Riot Fest appearances in Chicago and Denver in 2016. Last year's Riot Fest gigs, which featured drummer Dave Lombardo, marked the first time in 33 years the original Misfits members played together.

"OK Los Angeles, you've waited almost 35 years for this, here's your chance to see the "Original Misfits" in this Exclusive L.A. only performance." said Glenn Danzig. "No Tour, No BS, just one night of dark metal-punk hardcore brutality that will go down in the history books. See you there."

Tickets for this "one night only" show go on sale Friday, August 25.
