    Nominating "Blood Brothers" from Maiden's latest live album is really random.

    Well I agree with everyone else about the metal nominees . on the other hand I'm glad Bjork , Fiona Apple and Florence + The Machine got nominations , respectable names ( imo) .

    Pretty much this. I just wanted to say the same, that the people doing the nominating pretty much don't know anything about metal. They probably just know a small handful of bands, and half the albums make it on the list.

    A song from a live album, two songs from 2011, 2 terrible songs, and Lamb Of God. Meh. LOG is actually probably the most legit nominee.

    Really? this is the best the grammies can pick? We at metalstorm have had one HELL of a year with all of the amazing new releases, and the most effort the grammies put into the heavy metal awards is nominating megadeth and iron maiden's mediocre new stuff? I think those grammy award snobs ought to come over to metalstorm more often and see what's up

    I couldn't agree more. Everytime I see the nominees for the grammies I think I'm reading some kind of joke.

    Storm Corrosion for Best Surround Sound Album is the only interesting nomination. Hard Rock/Metal, or at least the latter has always been poorly represented in these all inclusive kind of awards. That's pretty inevitable when they lump the two into one category.

    Yeah I doubt many people in the metal community give a shit when it's just the same mainstream garbage every year whilst plenty of great artists go unheard. Though I do thank the Grammys for introducing me to some good bands when I first started getting into metal.

    The metal nominees are shit, but the other picks for album of the year and band of the year are surprisingly not shitty this year.

    For the record, the only other metal item worth mentioning is Lars Fox, lead singer of the incredible metal band Grotus is nominated for an engineering grammy for his work on Jason Mraz's new album.
    So... cheering for him for that.
    Wouldn't Mraz making a pretty kick-ass black metal band name?

    Not a happy thing for you to say, man. Needless to say what the czech fan's family is going through and what Randy will surely go through.
    Regarding the nominees, seems like the list was issued by a stiff, suit-and-tie, respectful gentleman who googled "metal". C'mon....Purple was left out. One of the real big 4 (being Sabbath, Zeppelin and Priest the others). Thank god it's this ridiculous. If the choices were a little bit more realistic, someone could actually took them seriously.

    Sometimes my negativity makes me happy. I just dont have a lot of respect for misogynists but the jury is still out on whether Chris Brown's melon needs to explode so I'll retract my statement.

    Meh, I had a feeling Halestorm would win. This is why I don't really care for the Grammys anymore, I have forgotten they were today until I was reminded about them.

    You must have a remarkably backwards idea of beauty if you think she's ugly.

    besides - i wrote "ugly-looking" and thats not the same as "ugly" for me...i believe she could look cute, but she needs to stop making those "though" faces as in the vid
