The Grammys Announce Nominations For Best Hard Rock & Metal Performances.
- Posted on December 2, 2010
The nominees for the 2011 Grammy Awards were announced and yet again the nominees for Best Hard Rock Performance and Best Metal Performance couldn't be more predictable. It's as if the voters looked at the lists of eligable entrants and picked the first five names they recognized in each category. Here are the nominees:
Best Hard Rock Performance
Alice In Chains - "A Looking In View" (Black Gives Way to Blue)
Ozzy Osbourne – "Let Me Hear You Scream" (Scream)
Soundgarden – "Black Rain" (Telephantasm)
Stone Temple Pilots – "Between The Lines" (Stone Temple Pilots)
Them Crooked Vultures – "New Fang" (Them Crooked Vultures)
Best Metal Performance
Iron Maiden – "El Dorado" (The Final Frontier)
Korn – "Let The Guilt Go" (Korn III: Remember Who You Are)
Lamb of God - "In Your Words" (Wrath)
Megadeth – "Sudden Death" (Guitar Hero: Warriors Of Rock)
Slayer – "World Painted Blood" (World Painted Blood)
I'm sure all the bands are honored to be nominated, but really this means very little to nothing to their careers, other than a pat on the back from people who most likely could give a shit about the music they play. So good luck to all parties involved, I'm sure you could all use a good paperweight.
