Top 5 WTF Music Award Acceptance Speeches
As we may have mentioned once or twice, tonight Rocks Off and the Houston Press reveal the winners of this year's 2010 Houston Press Music Awards over at Warehouse Live. It's a free show, with performances from nominees like Nick Gaitan's Umbrella Man, Fat Tony, Los Skarnales, Grandfather Child, Tax The Wolf, and fan fave Lee Alexander.

The past few years, the HPMAs have been relatively tame, except for last year when the Zydeco Dots chastised the Rocks Off team for not covering the zydeco scene like TMZ would a Lindsay Lohan bank robbery.
In 2007, when this member of Rocks Off was just a padawan running Drenched In Blog, we attended our first awards show with the team. This was the year the Zydeco Dots thanked the Houston Post, the long-defunct daddy paper in town that stopped circulation the day before this writer's twelfth birthday, for their award.
That was also the year that Little Joe Washington declared that "I'm a bad motherfucker. I don't know what the hell I'm here for," after winning Best Blues. We often feel the same way almost everywhere we are, ever.
We found the five biggest WTF music-award acceptance speeches. Let's just hope that some of you Houston cats can outdo some of these luminaries. We know you have it in you.
5. Mariah Carey: For once we can actually say that Mariah Carey was drunk because she actually admits to being drunk. This is the pinnacle of lushdom, from the copious cleavage to the slurring words. She's a pizza delivery boy porno waiting to happen.
4. Kanye West: It's hard to tell if Kanye is being sarcastic in this Brit Awards clip, but we like it all the same. He comes off as a petulant child having to tell his grandmother he likes the Cosby sweater she knitted him.
