Artists who walked away without a Grammy Sunday night can take solace in the fact that more than a few legendary bands and singers also got shut out by the Grammys.

Run-D.M.C.

Despite a career that spanned more than 20 years and being recognized as one of the most influential acts in the history of hip hop culture, rappers Run-D.M.C. was completely shut out by the Grammys. The group actually became the first hip hop group ever to receive a Grammy nomination, for Best R&B Vocal Performance by a Duo or Group in 1987 for "Raising Hell," losing out to Prince and The Revolution for "Kiss," and earned two more nominations, but never won.
