Who Will Win?


The Grammy awards are presented tomorrow night. There's actually quite a few Metal bands in the running this year - not that this means much or anything.

Motley Crue is nominated for only the second time and the win is certainly not guaranteed. Here are the nominees for Best Hard Rock performance:

Inside the Fire – Disturbed

Visions – Judas Priest

Wax Simulacra – The Mars Volta

Saints of Los Angeles – Motley Crue

Lords of Salem – Rob Zombie

Now, we all know the Grammy awards are about as important as the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame these days. In a lot of ways, the award (and especially the presentation show) have become a diluted mess of a former self. Do I think Motley will win? Actually, I do. I think it's between Motley or the Mars Volta (Judas Priest are nominated in some other categories, as are bands like Metallica).

Since Motley are nominated, I will watch. I think "Best Hard Rock Performance" is still considered important enough to be announced live. I'll be ticked if I sit through the broadcast only to learn the award was handed out during a pre-show ceremony.

I'm not sure if Motley are appearing at the show. Sunday is an off night on the Saints of Los Angeles tour and me thinks that didn't just happen serendipitously.


Oh, and just to see if I'm right, let it be known that I predicted Alison Krauss and Robert Plant would win the "Album of the Year" Grammy for Raising Sand something like 14 months ago. We'll see if my prediction rings true.

I took a look on the grammy website, and theres a hell of alot of BS.
I mean seriously. Kid Rock. Nominated. FOR ANYTHING. Thats just stupid.
I hope coldplay dont win anything either, because they annoy me. Im glad about the alison Krauss Robert Plant amount of nominations, because I loved raising sand.

Oh and the fact that the boss is nominated pleases me a great deal.

I'd like to see Motley win, but I also think Disturbed will win. Inside The Fire was huge and it was number one of the rock charts for what? 14 weeks? It did way better chart-wise than SOLA did. Guess we'll wait & see.

You were right Allyson, Plant & Krauss won... twice (so far)! I'm praying that Motley will win later tonite... And how does Coldplay win Best Rock Album from Metallica? FUCKIN' COLDPLAY (excuse the language, but I'm steaming). This is the biggest Metallica robbing since the Jethro Tull incident. Death Magnetic, in my opinion, was the second greatest rock/metal/anything album of the year, first being, of course, the phenomenal Chinese Democracy.
