Also somebody wanna explain to me the difference between shit like Song of the Year and Record of the Year? I don't fucking get it.
I believe that Record of the Year goes to the artist or band that recorded and performed the song, as well as I think the producers and what not, while Song of the Year is awarded to solely the songwriters. In a lot of cases it's probably the same people, but for pop songs where the artist didn't write the song, it would go to the songwriters. That's why when you see the nominations for anything with "____ Song of the Year" for any of the genres you see the songwriters (or at least credited songwriters) listed as potential recipients, even if it's just all the members of the band anyway.
