Twitter is NOT happy about Kendrick Lamar's Best Rap Album snub.

Macklemore and Ryan Lewis swept the rap category, winning the awards for Best Rap Performance, Best Rap Song, and Best Rap Album. Many people were upset that Macklemore and Ryan Lewis' "The Heist" beat out Lamar's "Good Kid, M.A.A.D City" and Kanye West's "Yeezus" for the title of Best Rap Album. Check out how the Internet is reacting to the perceived snub.

Even though Mackelmore swept the rap category, fans were surprised that his hit "Same Love" lost the award for Song of the Year to Lorde's "Royals."

Metal fans were upset that Slayer co-founder Jeff Hanneman was left out of the Grammys' "In Memoriam" tribute. He died in May of 2013.

Taylor Swift was nominated for four awards, but didn't walk away with any wins. Her fans were surprised that she lost out to Kacey Musgraves for Best Country Song ("Merry 'Go Round") and Best Country Album ("Same Trailer Different Park").

This list has to be rounded out with Kendrick Lamar, who was perhaps the most snubbed nominee of the night. Even with seven nods, Lamar didn't leave with any wins. Fans were particularly upset that he didn't win the Best New Artist category.
