Scoring a Grammy nod doesn’t necessarily make a song good, although it seems like the biggest music award of them all should help dictate which tracks will become pop classics. Alas, as it turns out, a lot of zeitgeist-y hits from the past few decades years didn’t win a statue on Grammy night, even though a few did score nominations. It might seem weird that “Umbrella” didn’t sweep all the record categories and No Doubt’s “Don’t Speak” wasn’t lauded at all. But those, of course, aren’t the only major pop hits lacking a statue.

We rounded up two handfuls of such snubbed songs below. Revisit them and feel the injustice!

Justin Bieber, “Boyfriend”

The flagship single off Justin Bieber’s 2012 sophomore album Believe failed to net even one Grammy nomination this year. In fact, Bieber’s album was completely overlooked by the Grammys, which is pretty questionable when you consider the teen pop star’s uber success. The last time his fans were this angry was when he got passed over for Best New Artist in 2011.

    What about “Iris” by the Goo Goo Dolls? They have 14 Top 10 singles and NO GRAMMYS AT ALL!

  2. ^ Song is still on the radio too. I feel like snubs like these make the Grammy’s a fairly unreliable basis on which to judge song merit. Of course, some bangin’ songs win from time to time, but sometimes they’re…just so random.
