I doubt it since they aren't even a band anymore.

No clue.

Just figured that because their album & tour were in 2012 that they'd be eligible for a 2013 award.

If a band wins comeback of the year twice in a row it should be called the Don't Call It A Comeback Award.

Would be really funny if Quicksand or Refused won because nobody who follows this bullshit seriously knows who they are.

I love when X Japan won an award last year and no one knew who they fuck they were. :lol:

What is the qualifications for a comeback? Neither of those bands released an album this year and the others on the list did. Plus, Refused played the same exact sets they did before they originally broke up. How is that a big comeback?

I Ejaculate Fire better win song of the year.



Not only because of the name, but it's infinitely better than the rest of the nominations.

So how exactly does each member of Rush get a nomination for the best at their respective instruments but they don't get a nomination for album of the year?

How the hell does Testament not get a nomination for album of the year either? I guess they have to kiss Soundgarden's ass even though that album was a huge disappointment.

Still better than last year. This year a dubstep album won't win Album Of The Year.

As mainstream as they've become, they still put on a hell of a show and Lzzy's voice is amazing.

Good question, I think Clockwork Angels was the album of the year or damn close. Very pleasant surprise after how bad Snakes and Arrows was.

Oh what really? I thought the last two were at the Key Club? My bad homie G.

I wonder how long Metallica will play. I'm sure the ticket price will give it away :lol:

haha no worries man. I'm sure only a few songs. Megadeth and Manson only did a few songs when they played the show. Hopefully this is Metallica's chance to showcase a new song.

Metallica will do like 5 songs. Thankfully they got a good headliner because Manson last year was fucking horrible.
