I shared this information last year as longer tenured readers might recall and it doesn’t hurt for more to learn who is getting awards for the work that they do in music. Truth be told this kind of music awards show is more in tune with what we cover here on PiercingMetal than the Grammy Awards are so let’s get down to business. I’ve left the nominees in the list as well so you can see who the winners beat out.

The Grammy Nominations Are In For “Best Hard Rock/Metal Performance”

Huzzah!!! The nominees for the 2011 Grammy Awards are in and I can hardly say that I even care about it. I guess I take this position because the realm of “Popular Music” seems to escape me, and yet that is alright since it’s not what I dedicate the site or writing adventures to in the first place over here on PiercingMetal. Despite this being the case, I find many of the media resources who walk along the same road as I do often take the time to speak to their readers about their views on situations like this situation. With this in mind I would never neglect the Metal Republic that chooses to listen to my thoughts on something so “important” and how it applies to our genre and its demographic of fans. Here we go….

Oh wait, I want to make mention of this before I continue on. With the 2012 Awards ceremony there will no longer be a category for “Best Hard Rock Performance” and “Best Heavy Metal Performance” as the two have been combined into the single listing of “Best Hard Rock/Heavy Metal Performance”. I am sure that you agree that this is okay because the two genre distinctions are exactly the same. Right?

The nominees for the 54th Annual Grammy Awards in the category of “Best Hard Rock/Metal Performance” are as follows: “On The Backs Of Angels” by Dream Theater [Roadrunner Records], “White Limo” by Foo Fighters [RCA Records/ Roswell Records], “Curl Of The Burl” by Mastodon [Reprise Records], “Public Enemy No. 1” by Megadeth [Roadrunner Records] and “Blood In My Eyes” by Sum 41 [Island]. You might view this as a very odd mixture of bands but let’s face it, the Grammy nomination committee has not struck me as all that sharp since the whole Metallica vs. Jethro Tull incident from many years ago. I listened to each tune and offer up my insight for what it is worth at the end of the day. Read on.
