For last night’s (Jan. 26) GRAMMY finale, Nine Inch Nails teamed up with Queens of the Stone Age, Lindsey Buckingham and Dave Grohl for a hard rock finale.

After the show, Reznor took to Twitter to express his ire towards the GRAMMYs and, most likely, its parent network CBS for switching to credits and a commercial before their performance was all said and done. (Full disclosure: Radio.com is owned by CBS Radio.)

In the tweet, Reznor simply writes: “Music’s biggest night… to be disrespected. A heartfelt F*** YOU guys.”

The GRAMMYS were expected to run for  three and a half hours, but like most awards show, it went over the allotted time. This left very little time for the finale, which, based on what did air, was an arena-sized rock show that brought together some exciting and unlikely characters from all corners of the genre. (A quick shout-out to Buckingham, who rocked out to NIN’s “Copy of A” and QOTSA’s “My God is the Sun”  like he was playing “The Chain.”)
