But let's see who the other nominees were for the ONLY Grammy that was for Metal (Best Hard Rock/Metal Performance):
- Public Enemy No. 1, Megadeth
- On the Backs Of Angels, Dream Theater
- White Limo, Foo Fighters
- Curl of the Burl, Mastodon
- Blood In My Eyes, Sum 41 (Does this one even make sense?)
Okay, so let me get this straight. The Foo Fighters, with this song, won a Grammy. That's hard enough to wrap my mind around, but THAT song, which had its lyrics written in just two minutes, was considered a better Hard Rock/Metal performance than this:
Of course, The Foo Fighters are a very marketable, mainstream band, no one watching the Grammys had even heard of Dream Theater, etc.etc. I get it. But there are so many more amazing American Metal bands! Symphony X, Iced Earth, Kamelot! And Sum 41 got nominated?
The Grammys are a joke. I realize that. But when a deserving band finally gets nominated after 20+ years of churning out fantastic albums, only to lose to this garbage, shit gets serious.
