However, a sense of disarray resonated with various musicians, who took to Twitter in order to vent their disapproval of the Grammy Awards.

Maynard James Keenan is a man who wears many hats, but in 'Crank: High Voltage,' he wears an incredibly nerdy wig. The Tool / A Perfect Circle / Puscifer singer has made various appearances in both television and film during the past 15 years, but his cameo in 'Crank' is one you may have missed.
This fourth and final matchup in the President of Heavy Metal election quarterfinals features metal music's maddest scientist, Maynard James Keenan.
