And the Nominees for This Year’s Bullshit “Best Metal Performance” Grammy Are…

  • Axl Rosenberg

August Burns Red – “Invisible Enemy”

Body Count – “Black Hoodie”

Code Orange – “Forever”

Mastodon – “Sultan’s Curse”

Meshuggah – “Clockworks”

So who gets it? Going by the laws of “The voters have heard of them before ” and “Their music has the most mass appeal,” I’d wager Mastodon, but who knows. Maybe Brent Hinds getting booted from the awards in 2015 will be held against them. Or maybe Ice-T has won enough old white fans from Law & Order to have an edge.

Meanwhile, there are two other categories which may be of interest of metal fans, given some of the nominated artists:

Best Rock Song
Metallica – “Atlas, Rise!”
K.Flay – “Blood In The Cut”
Nothing More – “Go To War”
Foo Fighters – “Run”
Avenged Sevenfold – “The Stage”

Best Rock Album
Mastodon – Emperor of Sand
Metallica – Hardwired…To Self-Destruct
Nothing More – The Stories We Tell Ourselves
Queens Of The Stone Age – Villains
The War On Drugs – A Deeper Understanding

The 2018 Grammy Awards will take place on January 28 at MSG in NYC. MetalSucks has applied for press credentials, so fingers crossed, we’ll be able to really bring down the show’s level of class to almost nothing.
