Reason #3242 why armys shouldn't be offended with some hater criticizes BTS' music. Industry professionals who actually know music and take the time to study the lyrics and meaning of the albums know BTS isn't your typical pop stars. This endorsement by the Recording Academy basically sets in stone BTS and Big Hit's place in history.
