Hmmm which one sticks out like a sore thumb here? Gotta love Robert Plant and how he has acheived greatness as the frontman for Zepplin.

I'd love to see Ministry win just so some announcer at the actual show has to say: "And the winner is Ministry for The Great Satan..."

I like it when the deep south and the mid-west get all upset about the secular world sin and hell and all that fairy tale garbage.....

But they won't win, because the Grammy's don't want the whole breadbasket to send them illiterate hate mail and deaththreats from Christian abortion clinic bombers.

HELL YES!!!! Rammstein and Slipnot made it to the grammys.....Though Slipknot's "vermillion" should've won last year...."Before I forget" isn't the best one on their album....Rammstein should've gotten a nomination for "Sonne" and "Mein Herz Brennt" from their album "Mutter"...But glad they made it to The Grammys....And Slipknot once again, hopefully this time they'll win...But then again these [guys that control these Award ceremonies] are the same people who took roughly over 60 years to nominate a black person for something, let alone have them win the award. Slipknot should've really won something for "Vermillion".....But hey that's life

RememberMetal? that would be funny as hell.

SOAD is gonna win cause everyone in the mainstream loves them.

And for metal performance knot is gonna win cause they are the most popular among the people of the mainstream.

And determind is far from the best song by mudayne ... if i had to pick their best song i would have to go with dig.

Oh man and allow me to step in being a huge mudvayne fan and say if you think determined is the best that mudvayne has to offer, you should get rid of their cds and go back to korn and slipknot. Because the only thing you can recognize is radio-falsifying talent.

Determined was far from a good song, Happy? (which wasnt much better) was much more popular and radio friendly.

And as if anyone wants my two cents their best song(s) are : -1, Nothing To Gein, and Internal Primmates Forever. Followed maybe by Mercy Severity.

negatyve, go back to korn and slipknot?? Mudvayne is not a very good band at all. They are basically a nu metal band trying to make a comeback, and being nominated for a grammy only further supports my point. Shadows Fall deserves the metal award seeing as how they are the only true metal band nominated. They definitely wont win though, it will probably be mudvayne. If the grammy's knew what they were talking about Opeth would be nominated because they put out the best album by far this year. Either that or the new hate eternal..............

slipknot is absolute garbage, they are by far the gayest band on that entire list, they are gonna win because of all the damn hype that has been surrounding their garbage album that came out a year and a half ago. Thier faces are posted all over every metal magazine that has came out since the release of that atrocity of album. They call themselves metal, they are nothing but a heavy alternative rock band, duality is such a horrible song, before i forget is even worse and it has a grammy nom. WTF is up with that. if anything they should be in the hard rock. They are not metal. They are one album away from totally selling out and taking their masks off. Rammstein is prolly the most metal of all of them. Mudvayne is the most talented but the new album is just way to nu metal. But back to my original point, slipknot needs to stop being blasted in the face of the country and being called metal and talented. The only thing that made them popular in the first place was the whole "we've got 9 guys in our band, everyone listen to us." If slipknot wins this grammy this is trully the end of metal. f*** slipknot, f*** their garbage music, f*** everything in this country that has anything to do with slipknot, they suck.

hard rock should go to nine inch nails, just because their not nu-metal, not mainstream, and don't have the name "Rob Plant", which just sounds silly.

...and metal - shadows fall, because they're probably the only group that the voters wouldnt have heard of (or at least, much of).

...and besides, all the rest of the bands only very loosely can be defined as ;metal' at all.

Rammstein is'nt pop it's industrial and they're amazing live.

The only bands i even consider true metal on the list is ministry and shadows fall.

"the great satan" wont win cause the name is way to contravorsal and they will get sued if they win but it got nominated so the name will still get mentioned.

My money is on mudvayne.

In metal Rammstein should take it they kick ass. But i think slipknot will take it but i have no problem with that either or mudvayne for that matter is good too. ill really be p***ed if shadows fall win they piss me off on the inside and i dont know why...Ministry is pretty damn good though.
