Motorhead won for Best Metal Performance? That's cool, I guess. Cradle of Filth should've won hands down though. sh**knot, however, shouldn't have even been nominated, nor even mentioned in the SAME BREATH as the word "metal". Veta's right, the Grammy's were, indeed, a f***ing snooze, but THAT'S putting it mildly.

I was kind of surprised to hear COF were nominated but glad just the same. I thought they had some stiff competition. I like Killswitch as well as COF.

Ah, the Grammys a night where pop sentions with abouslety no talent and that lip-synch win 11 awards for song where all they sing is "Yeah" and dont perform any of the background music, and probably was written by someone else ...... ah yes the glorious f***ing grammys eh.

Metal gets no respect really its unfair .... i guess people just dont respect music with TALENT

n. adeptness of ability in some field or activy

.... yes pop/rap fans TALENT (tal - ent) is the word of the day

Metal gets trashed for being too violent while look at the news, and the tv there just as violent if not more violent and rap and pop aren't any better they explictly describe sex and drugs and more listened to by the youth than any other music so the media should go stick there d***s somewhere else and learen to respect TALENT.
