Worst ever Grammy decisions and controversies

Album of the Year, 2001

Winner: Steely Dan - Two Against Nature

The 2001 Album of the Year category had a strong field to pick from. Radiohead looked set to be honored for the ground-breaking Kid A, undoubtedly one of the most forward-thinking records to be released by a major band in recent years, Eminem was nominated for The Marshall Mathers LP - a landmark album in rap history - and genre-hopping musical chameleon Beck received a deserved nod for his release Midnite Vultures.

The winner, however, was Two Against Nature - the unremarkable comeback album by rockers Steely Dan, a record which had seemingly slipped under the radar of everyone except for the people at the Academy.
