The band, known for such hits as “Roxanne,” “Message in a Bottle” and “Every Breath You Take,” has never performed at the annual telecast for the music industry’s most prestigious awards that are given by The Recording Academy.
If you add in anything from Jane’s Addiction, that’s the list of “songs I hate most in the world”.

And one rung down from the sound of my alarm clock.
Luckily, I don’t have to watch the Grammys.
