Black Sabbath - Win Grammy For Best Metal Performance


The 56th annual Grammy Awards happened last night in Los Angeles and the winners are known. Black Sabbath took home the award for "Best Metal Performance" for "God Is Dead?", from their comeback album 13. Anthrax, Dream Theater, Killswitch Engage and Volbeat were also nominated in that category.

The Best Rock album was Led Zeppelin's Celebration Day. Metallica didn't win in the "Best Recording Package" category but they did perform their hit song "One" with pianist Lang Lang.

The ceremony closed with a collaboration of Nine Inch Nails, Queens Of The Stone Age, Dave Grohl and Fleetwood Mac's Lindsey Buckingham. The performance was cut short when CBS began rolling end-of-show credit. And Trent Reznor wasn't happy about it.

Has anyone here actually congratulated Sabbath for winning yet? If not, then congratulations to an icon of metal for getting recognition in the wider musical community.

Good call for bringing some respect back to the thread. It's funny how sometimes one's dislike of an event can overshadow the fact that a legendary metal band just won a Grammy.

I also noticed that no one has suggested a better recipient of the award.

I would say that they should have got a Life Time Achievement Grammy and NOT a Graamy for the incredibly average 13.
