MF DOOM's Grammys Tribute Was Not in All Caps and People Are Pissed
DOOM's project Madvillain was responsible for the excellent track "All Caps" (which was recently remastered), wherein the artist made one simple request: "Just remember ALL CAPS when you spell the man name."
The Grammys did not get the memo, instead listing DOOM's moniker in title case on the screen.
When this was pointed out, Twitter quickly took notice.

Nice to see MF DOOM recognized at the Grammys, but just remember ALL CAPS when you spell the man name. pic.twitter.com/iZJxbIEFz2— Pigeons & Planes (@PigsAndPlans) March 15, 2021
Then again, we're talking about an organization that pluralizes the word "Grammy" as "Grammys," so caps and spelling are not necessarily its top priorities.
