Hey guys look, Justin Vernon doesn’t give a shit either!
If you’re wondering why Bon Iver didn’t perform last night, just blame the band’s integrity. The reason, again, goes back to the band’s refusal to deal with an organization that would try to dictate their musical behavior. The band was asked to play with other acts that had “nothing to do with” their music,” according to Billboard.
“We kind of said ‘fuck you’ a little bit and they sort of acted like they wanted us to play, but I don’t think they wanted us to play,” Vernon said. “Fuckin’ rock ‘n’ roll should not be decided by people that have that job. Rock ‘n’ roll should be the fucking people with guitars around their backs.”

I don’t think the Bon Iver record is the kind of record that would get nominated for a Grammy—I would get up there and be like, ‘This is for my parents, because they supported me,’ because I know they would think it would be stupid of me not to go up there. But I kinda felt like going up there and being like: ‘Everyone should go home, this is ridiculous. You should not be doing this. We should not be gathering in a big room and look at each other and pretending this is important.’ That’s what I would say.
