The snow is coming down if you are wondering how things are doing over on the East Coast side of the nexus but we don’t care since it doesn’t seem too bad and we’ve lots of provisions for both the cat and myself here at the Metal Media Command HQ.

They say that its the most important night in music and if you’re a fan of Rap, R&B and lots of Pop stuff this is very possibly true. Most of the fans of the Rock and the Metal side of the fence don’t really lend too much attention to it since many of our category awards get presented before the show even airs on television. Though I cannot confirm since I don’t watch the broadcast, I’m fairly certain that the Metal performers don’t even get to play for the audience live anymore. With most of the categories that do hold some interest to our readers, I’m sharing them below for your awareness.
Best Rock Performance:
You Want It Darker – Leonard Cohen – WINNER
The Promise – Chris Cornell
Run – Foo Fighters
No Good – Kaleo
Go To War – Nothing More
