Slipknot frontman Corey Taylor has vowed to snub the Grammy Awards next month (08FEB06), because he can't stand the disappointment of losing again.

The band has been nominated for the eighth time, in the Best Metal Performance category, but has yet to pick up a gong - and Taylor has given up hope.

He tells MTV News, "I'm not going to the f**king Grammys.

"This is the eighth nomination for me. I cared the first two times. Now I don't care. A Grammy's a Grammy. Putting all my f**king hopes and dreams on some statuette that'll probably sit in my bathroom? That's not what I'm about."
