To: Let's make our voices heard, for The Recording Academy to acknowledge Buck-Tick's contribution to global music, as well as mention vocalist Atsushi Sakurai in the "In Memoriam" montage during the Grammy Award ceremony.

Get The Grammy Awards to acknowledge Buck-Tick

Buck-Tick is a Japanese rock band, having the same line-up for over 35 years. There is a strong fanbase in and outside of their home country of Japan. Recently, vocalist Atsushi Sakurai passed away suddenly, leaving many fans distraught. The band deserves global recognition, and Mr. Sakurai should be acknowledged in the "In Memoriam" montage during the 2024 Grammy Awards ceremony and TV broadcast. Let's make our voices heard to The Recording Academy!

Why is this important?

This is important to me because Buck-Tick's music has touched many fans worldwide, even if they don't want to admit it, they are heroes behind their musical instruments. They may have inspired and prevented fans from taking their own lives, put it bluntly. The band has definitely deserved more Awards than what they have been presented with over the years. Their live performances are extremely dynamic, I have only seen recorded versions of their live shows, but wow!!!
