I personally don't think Slayer should win a Grammy for a reissue of an album they've already won a Grammy for. That being said, Best Metal Performance should go to King f***ing Diamond.

Best Hard Rock Performance is pretty much a lock for Ozzy since he is the most easily recognized person nominated. But it's a shame; I would like to see Queens of the Stone age win this one.

My first pick for Best Rock Instrumental Performance would be Satriani, but that's a pretty old song (it's only eligible because it's a live recording), so I'd have to say Rush for this.

The grammies giving Metallica a win with St. Anger is just them still making up for when they passed over AJFA and gave a grammy to Jethro Tull (?!) in the hard rock category way back when...
