Best Metal Performance for 'El Dorado' :hecho:

Them Crooked Vultures won Best Hard Rock Performance for 'New Fang' and Jeff Beck won Best Rock Instrumental Performance for 'Hammerhead'.

Your second point is correct, though.

For what? They didn't even have anything new out this year:confused:

Congrats to the mighty Maiden:horns:

I know it doesn't mean that much to us but it's nice they got a bit of mainstream recognition for a new release.

The Grammys are a joke. Not even for the fact that it's mainstream but because it makes no fucking sense. Priest won last year for a live version of a song from the 70's? Slayer won a couple years ago for a bonus track on a reissue? Soundgarden gets nominated for a song recorded in the 90's? Megadeth gets nominated for a track written just for inclusion in Guitar Hero?

Stupid shit. Congrats to Maiden for what it's worth.

Also, TCV are awesome.

They released a song called hit the wall made for the iron man 2 soundtrack.

I feel bad for Megadeth. They've been nominated about 8 times and have never won. :(

Suuuure...

Just fyi, Wrath came out in February 2 years ago.

They (he) should've won something for Endgame. But fuck the Grammys, we all know they vote based on reputation rather than quality. TCV could've won regardless but we all know it was a vote for Zeppelin/Nirvana/Queens, in that order.

S'true. Everything else he posts is bullshit. But that was on the nail.

I actually like that song, so was quite excited for the album. Then I heard it :hecho:

Every Metal Performance Grammy is a lifetime achievement award. This isn't a trophy for "El Dorado;" it's a trophy for Iron Maiden, which they of course deserve.

I'm still just enjoying the Internet rage over Arcade Fire winning. http://whoisarcadefire.tumblr.com/ :lol: :lol: Good for AF, and who the fuck are these rock-dwellers who didn't know about a band whose record was number one for weeks over the summer?

:lol: at the link. But the funniest part is that there are apparently people out there who put an emotional stake in the Grammy's.

Im kinda partial to the angry bieber fans defacing the wiki page for the girl that won best artist


and the incredibly awkward moment when Lady antebellum won song of the year
