I really hope Alice in Chains wins in their category. I love Metallica, but Unforgiven III is the worst song off of Death Magnetic. Never cared much for AC/DC, and the other two bands are unmentionable.

As for the metal category, those are all excellent bands, so it's going to come down to popularity...guessing Priest or Megadeth. Either way, they all deserve it.

Say what you will about the Grammys, but it's great to see Metallica, Megadeth, Slayer, Lamb of God, Alice in Chains, Ministry, and AC/DC all nominated this year! I just hope those douchebags in Linkin Park and Nickelback don't win! Hopefully this time around Megadeth and AIC will finally win it.

Well, Nickelback and Linkin Park are in the "hard rock" category (along with Metallica, haa!) so I dont know if I could argue with that.

At least those 5 mentioned along the "Metal " category are bands I actually consider as Metal.

And I dont understand why Mastodon is not there either. Ridiculous!
I guess someone just flicked through the past 3months of Rolling Stone magazine and decided who deserves a nomination based on success. Sad world we live in.
Even more so as I got sacked today :(

The age of a band really really shouldn't matter. I've always though LoG sucked a$$ anyway. Wasn't impressed with anything I heard. Saw them live in June and they were boring. I've seen the other four bands and they were great live and I believe the other four have put out better albums too. I think only Slayer has won a Grammy before so it would be a nice addition to the other's resume or whatever.

I rarely watch the Music Awards shows now - although I must say that American Music Award show was pretty okay/that Lady Ga-Ga nearly destoyed that stage... 'Anyway, The GRAMMY's should be interesting with that Hard Rock & Metal Catagories of Bands so mentioned above: I think Alice In Chains have a raw solid sound as do legendary Icons AC/DC either one can take that title and Judas Priest & Slayer etc.,. are masters at their music crafts so it's gonna be a heavy tulse-up choice to pick the winning groove for those two. I'm surprise that really "strange" psychodellic/Metal band MASTODON aren't nominated for an Award... Well, anyway all the best to the Nominated bands above when someone poured their Heart N Soul into their music/lyrics well they already won the prize rather they were nominated or not. All the best.

Lamb Of God are great musicians and all that, but I honestly believe they're the most overrated band going. I kept being told to check them out and when I did, I thought what I heard was average. Then I get told I have to listen to certain eras or something, I did, still wasn't impressed. "No man! See them live! They'll blow you away!"... They didn't. I don't know if it was because it was an outdoor festival or whatever, but I still found them boring and the constant "COME ON MOTHERf***ERS!!!!" was getting on my nerves. So I went and got a drink instead. I don't have a problem with LOG as such and I'm not saying they don't deserve any credit, I'd take them over Linkin Park or Avenged Sevenfold any day, but hearing all the time about how great they are when I really can't hear anything special is annoying as f***.

How can you Say "They influenced tons of noneworthy bands and they are responsable for anomalies such as A7X, Bullet for you know what and etc, etc.". When everyone to Zakk Wydle, to Kerry King call him an influence? He may not be who got them into metal, but he kept EVERYONES heart Metal during the '90's when metal was not "in". Or are you not old enough to know what you are talking about? Do you work for Wikilipidia Because you are talking about nothing that you seem to know about. Start reading interviews with your favorite bands, not just make stuff up. AND FYI both AX7 and BULLETT site Metallica as there main influence. Blame them, leave Pantera and Dimes legacy alone. He would do the same for you.

Bla bla bla. Zak Wylde and Kerry King doesn't mean a sh** to me, cuz their best days is in the past. I also thought that death and black kept the metal alive not some sissy groove bands with choped of riffs, but I guess you know better. Excuse me and good night.

Judas Priest and Megadeth are not metal anymore...Also Dave Mustaine can die!
I hope Lamb of God or Ministry will win.

ACDC-past their prime. Linkin Park and Nickelback-f**kin gay. Metallica-just die already, stop beating a dead horse. When your sharing a stage with Aretha Franklin...AIC takes hard rock for me. Agreed, Mastadon should on here for metal. Love all these bands anyway, tho, I say Megadeth finally takes one.

Slayer for Best Metal Performance, although Headcrusher is
a f***** awesome song. No to Stinkin Park, hell no to Nickelback, just because they're Nickelback. No to AC/DC, best days are behind them, Unforgiven III is unforgivable, so Alice in Chains should win Best Hard Rock. But you never
know with those idiots at the Shammys, Jethro Tull anyone?
