And the Nominees for This Year’s Bullsh*t “Best Metal Performance” Grammy Are…
Deftones – “Genesis”
Dream Theater – “The Alien”
Gojira – “Amazonia”
Mastodon – “Pushing the Tides”
Rob Zombie – “The Triumph of King Freak”
I assume Rob Zombie will win this because he’s likely the artist in this category with which the most voters are familiar. Having said that, the Deftones scored multiple Grammy noms this year, so they’re clearly popular, too.
Which brings us to this year’s Best Rock Performance nominees, who may also be of interest to MS readers:
AC/DC – “Shot in the Dark”
Black Pumas – “Know You Better”
Chris Cornell – “Nothing Compares 2 U”
Deftones – “Ohms”
Foo Fighters – “Making a Fire”
AC/DC are one of the biggest bands of all time, so they’re the frontrunners. But voters might also go for the late Cornell.
The Grammys will take place on January 31 at the Crypto.com Arena in Los Angeles, California.
