Black Sabbath Wins Grammy Award For "Best Metal Performance"
Band Photo: Metallica (?)
Back in December the Grammy nominees for "best metal performance" were announced, and if you've forgotten the lineup was as follows:
"T.N.T." - Anthrax
"God Is Dead?" - Black Sabbath
"The Enemy Inside" - Dream Theater
"In Due Time" - Killswitch Engage
"Room 24" - Volbeat Featuring King Diamond
While many put their money down on Volbeat, it turns out Black Sabbath actually took home the win for "God Is Dead?"
The track was also nominated for "best rock song" and the new album "13" (reviewed here) was up for "best rock album," although Sabbath didn't actually snag a win in either of those categories. Here were the nominations for best rock song and best rock album:
"Ain't Messin' 'Round" -- Gary Clark Jr.
"Cut Me Some Slack" -- Paul McCartney, Dave Grohl, Krist Novoselic, Pat Smear (Winner)
"Doom and Gloom" -- The Rolling Stones
"God Is Dead?" -- Black Sabbath
"Panic Station" -- Muse
Black Sabbath -- "13"
David Bowie -- "The Next Day"
Kings of Leon -- "Mechanical Bull"
Led Zeppelin -- "Celebration Day" (Winner)
Queens of the Stone Age -- "... Like Clockwork"
Neil Young with Crazy Horse -- "Psychedelic Pill"
Metallica also performed during the awards ceremony, playing the track "One" alongside pianist Lang Lang. Footage of the event can be seen below.
