grammy horns

Well, another year has passed and it’s time for another year worth of music culture to be judged and dramatized. The Grammy’s have often displayed more gossip and scandal than grandeur sophistication, so this year we’ve decided to steer into the skid with an interactive drinking game! No matter the occasion, it’s always a good time to celebrate music and its effects on culture, and what a better way to do it than by getting a little tipsy (or a lot) on a Sunday night? Grab yourself a drink (or multiple) and check out the list below for an evening guaranteed to be packed with big wins, political nods, social justice praises, and of course, some great music.

Also, please drink responsibly. Don’t be that person.

Take a sip when:

  • An artist is mentioned that you haven’t heard of
  • Someone thanks God in their acceptance speech
  • Trump is mentioned or referenced
  • Someone is played off for a long acceptance speech
  • An artist is not present to accept an award
  • An artist is shown wearing sunglasses indoors
  • A presenter stumbles over their words
  • Any joke is made about Taylor Swift drama
  • Oprah is mentioned
  • Any joke is made about sexual harassment in entertainment
  • Any audience member is caught taking a selfie
  • An artist comes out for a performance dressed in all one color

Finish your drink when:

  • James Corden makes a rude joke that makes the audience go “OOoooooh”
  • An artist changes outfits during a performance
  • If a speech addressing social justice receives a standing ovation. You must also stand and cheer along in your living room, bar, or other location of viewing.
  • Anything relating to streaming, copyright law, or royalties are mentioned
  • When a musician you admire is posthumously recognized, including but not limited to Chris Cornell, Chester Bennington, Tom Petty, Greg Allman, Malcolm Young, and/or Chuck Berry. A toast and brief moment of silence are also required

Take a shot when:

  • There are technical or wardrobe issues during a performance
  • Jay Z wins more than three Grammys
  • Anyone crashes the stage during an acceptance speech (we’re crossing our fingers, Kanye)
  • Lil Uzi Vert wins Best New Artist
  • A hologram of a deceased artist is displayed during a performance
  • Bruno Mars wins Record of the Year
  • Childish Gambino wins Record of the Year
  • Basically if Jay Z doesn’t win record of the year
