A lot of eyebrows were raised when Skrillex was nominated for a Grammy for Best New Artist last week. After all, not every mainstream music fan listens to dubstep -- let alone knows what it is -- and so the inclusion of a word that sounds like a nifty device for brunch making was quite curious to some indeed.
Before the nomination was even announced, YouTube user TheRedGibson22 decided that his 90-year old grandfather Al should get acquainted with the beats of a new generation. He did a good job trying to understand the sound coming from his grandson's computer, but he wasn't much of a fan.
"Not to be nasty, but is that considered to be music that's popular with teenagers?" Al asked. "We don't understand one word they're saying."
To be fair, the guy's seemingly far cooler than most 90-year olds: he wasn't rejecting Skrillex for Sinatra, but because he couldn't dance to it. Thankfully, Foster the People came on next, and all was right with the world.
