Two of the biggest names in hard rock and heavy metal walked away with Grammy awards last night as British metal legends Judas Priest picked up the award for Best Metal Performance, beating Lamb Of God, Megadeth, Ministry and Slayer, with their song "Dissident Aggressor," taken from their live album, "A Touch Of Evil: Live." Australian based hard rockers AC/DC also scooped the prize for Best Hard Rock Performance for their song "War Machine," which appears on their most recent studio album, "Black Ice" and the forthcoming "Iron Man 2" soundtrack. They were able to beat Metallica, Alice In Chains, Nickelback and Linkin Park in their category.

Love Judas Priest but Dissident Aggressor is from the 1970s , come on it's nothing new. Lamb of God deserved the Grammy for Wrath. The Grammy's are so disconnected from the metal world and it shows.

I would have liked Ministry to have won the Metal Grammy but it was a long shot. With Megadeth it's a lose/lose situation as we'd either have to hear Mustaine going on about how they won and Metallica didn't or (what will probably happen later) Mustaine ranting about not winning again. I'm a massive Priest fan so I'm happy. Don't understand why people are moaning about AC/DC, surely it's better they won than Linkin Park or Nickelback?

AC/DC deserved a grammy, like 20 years ago. War Machine is not even the best song on Black Ice. Judas Priest also deserved a grammy, like 20 years ago. Oh well, maybe Megadeth will win a grammy in 2021 for Holy Wars. Oh, and all you AC/DC and Priest bashers, get over yourselves, it aint like Jethro Tull won!

Ok, obviously MegaDeth should of won. Headcrusher was definitly one of the best songs this year. Slayer is one of my favorite bands(as is MegaDeth) but I can honestly say Endgame was better then World Painted Blood. I don't think Lamb of God even deserved to be nominated so I'm glad they didn't win. I think while Judas Priest should'nt of won it... its still Priest so I really can't be mad

To n0thing and everyone else who is having issues with this: May I remind you that with the Grammy's they often go with the name of the band that is most familiar to them. This way they don't actually have to look or listen to anything in order to make their pick. This is why the Grammy's have always been a fvcking joke to me. Seriously, why else would Jethro Tull win the first year that a metal catagory was introduced? Is there ANYTHING about a flute that says metal to anyone?

I used to think Megadeth was the greatest band ever... for about three months. Then I got into Pantera, Slayer, Anthrax and from there Venom, Sepultura, Onslaught and so on and so forth. Mustaine complained last time Megadeth didn't win a Grammy so why wouldn't he this time? Especially since everyone has been saying what a good album he's done. Last time they were nominated he moaned about King Diamond being nominated too because King's album hadn't sold as much as them.

Love both bands, but neither of them deserved to win. Alice in Chains should've won Best Hard Rock not only because of all that they've been through, but because they also had a better song.

AC/DC is not wht they used 2 b, they've gone mainstream/commercial & I thnk they're sell-outs if u ask me. I regret buying that album. AIC should've won. Their new album was better thn wht I expected. As far as Megadeth is concerned, if Mustaine stopped complaining/b**ching so much, I would've probably rooted 4 them. Lol!! I wish Cannibal Corpse was nominated or perhaps win a grammy (yea rite, never in a 1000 yrs...I don't thnk they're ready 4 dat 1).

Well, I am pleased with how it turned out. Priest and AC/DC were both my second picks in each of the categories. I think Alice in Chains and MEgadeth should have won. But seeing as they didn't AC/DC and Judas Priest were my second choices. Ministry I am not too much of a fan of, so I didn't care for them much, World Painted Blood was, in my opinion, one of the worst songs off the album and the Lamb of God tune wasn't as strong as Headcrusher or Dissident Aggressor. Once again, it's all opinion. Then when it comes to Hard Rock, Alice in Chains should have won, but seeing as they didn't anyone but Linkin Park or Nickleback was good by me. :] /,,/

Yeah, Cynic, Alice In Chains definitely deserved that one. Can't complain about recognizing Judas Priest and AC/DC, but it couldn't sound any more like they picked them just by name/legacy, as neither of their latest works were their best or hold a candle to some of their competition. But this wasn't a RNR Hall of Fame nomination, so people have a right to be outraged. I simply don't give a sh** though, as I'm sure many metalheads don't.

So it was written and recorded 1977 - the performance was recent! It is, after all, "best heavy metal performance." Priest deserved it. Dissident Aggressor is not simply one of Priest's best songs; it's one of the best heavy metal compositions ever. Metal owes a great debt to Priest and to that song. The performance on Live Evil kills.

^ Buddy this is Priest's best song no questions asked...well...personally. But I also know it's a fan favourite, and my only problem with it is that it has been for the better of 45 years. AC/DC are an amazing band (not musically though lol) and deserve credit for that, but they have got all the credit and then some that they deserve. I've seen AC/DC, Lamb of God, and Alice in Chains all in the past one maybe two years in Toronto, and AC/DC was...i hate to say it...the least exciting of the three.

I think they deserve all the credit in the world for their past achievements, but i thought even the Grammys would recognise that it's time to move on recognise some younger talent.

DMS: I'm not a MegaDeth hater, i'm a Dave Cumstain hater. I've been a fan of the music since the early 80's, seen them countless times and actually met Dave when he was strung out on heroin and drunk on vodka. The music (for the most part) is good, but lets face it... Dave is d!ck.

i dont get why you are making such a big deal about this. the grammy is a mainstream award that caters to popular taste however much it might say that it is an unbiased award for all genres of music.

You're all a bunch of b****es! Shut the f*** up! While I wish that AIC, LoG and/or 'Deth would have won, I'm glad that FINALLY AC/DC and Priest were finally recognized after all these years. The early masters of the past showing the current masters of the present and future of metal how it's done.

Hey Nothinghead: The Golden God awards are an annual heavy metal awards show, I don't think it's organized by a specific group (could be wrong) but it's normally sponsored by a mag like Metal Hammer.

To your other question, only MU staff vote on our best of but you'll be free to post your thoughts underneath as usual :)

I am a massive Priest fan and hey, I am happy for them b/c I bet they appreciate winning a Grammy after all these years. However, DA is a 30+ year old song that was performed live. I find it strange and well, buggered up that it was in competition against songs written in the current year. The Grammys have and always will be out to lunch when it comes to our music genre. They sh!it the bed when Jethro Tull won n' have never looked back. I rarely watch a minute of the show anymore. Could you imagine how insanely kewl it would be to see today's metal bands on the show AND on stage performing and/or accepting a grammy? Alas, the hate is still strong as ever against metal. On the grammiess, you can see a whacked out chick singing about taking a ride on a disco stick but you cannot watch a few long haired men headbang to the wonderful sound of MOFO METAL!

This is so crazy. Judas Priest, no doubt, gods of metal. Currently one of the biggest, if not the biggest, metal band in the world still performing today. But COME ON. That song is before they were actually metal in the first place! I think Lamb of God should have won this award for "Set to Fail", though I do think that "Reclamation" was the best, and most METAL, song on Wrath. I will say this about Wrath though... Lamb of God is no doubt my favorite band of all time. Been a fan since Gospel, BUT Wrath is just... ugh, in my opinion the worst LoG album to date. But it is a Lamb of God album, nonetheless, so it still rocks. I think Mastodon should have been nominated, and I know I'll catch flack for this, but the fictional band Dethklok (from [adult swim]'s Metalocalypse) should have been nominated too. The Dethalbum II was brutal! Oh well, I guess I've made my point. Screw Priest. LAMB OF GOD RULES!
