Ooops. Someone from the 61st Annual GRAMMY Awards probably should have double-checked their work!

Turns out, last night's GRAMMYs left out a pretty important rocker during their In Memoriam. PanteraDamageplan, and Hellyeah co-founder and member Vinnie Paul was among two notable artists who didn't make it into the show's annual honoring of those in the music world lost.

Young rapper XXXTentacion was also left out. But this isn't the first time that heavy metal icons have been left out. Jeff Hanneman, Peter Steele, and Paul Gray have also been missed. However, none have had the impact on the genre that Paul has. Upon seeing the error, let's just say Twitter noticed.
