You’ve been waiting with baited breath on the decision of the voting party for the next round of Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductees and now my friends the votes have been tallied and here they are. Behold your “Class of 2019”: The Cure, Janet Jackson, Def Leppard, Stevie Nicks, Radiohead, Roxy Music and The Zombies.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: There aren’t a whole lot of surprises to me with the inductees as I was pretty much expecting groups like Def Leppard and The Cure and Radiohead to win out. Nice to see Stevie Nicks getting the honor outside of her work with Fleetwood Mac for sure and since I never followed Roxy Music I’ll have to defer to the experts on their offerings. Though I feel Janet is a world of talent, she doesn’t do much with “Rock” so I’m surprised the committee opted for her as opposed to the likes of Devo or Todd Rundgren. I’d say “maybe next year” to those groups but after seeing what happened with Judas Priest and their one and done nomination, I don’t have a whole lot of faith in the process. Of course, I never really did. Should you wish to remind yourself of the nominees that this new class was pooled from just click HERE to see our summary from some months ago. Please chime in down below with what you think about these inductees and who’d you like to see receive the honor next year but be realistic. Remember we aren’t going to see Slayer and Motorhead on this list any time soon no matter how important they are to our Legions.

The 59th Annual Grammy Nominations For Rock and Metal Are Here

Hey it’s that time of the year again for the Grammy Award nominations and since its always a fun talking point to present the artists that our reader demographic are most interested in. I’m speaking of course about the Rock and Metal categories with a touch of Alternative thrown in for good measure. I’ll be adding my own personal choice below each category and I’ll be polling you at the close. Let’s go.

Best Rock Performance:
“Joe (Live From Austin City Limits)” — Alabama Shakes
“Don’t Hurt Yourself” — Beyonce´ Featuring Jack White
“Blackstar” — David Bowie
“The Sound Of Silence” — Disturbed
“Heathens” — Twenty One Pilots

PiercingMetal’s Pick: Wow Beyonce in the Rock Category! What is this musical world coming to? I guess we shall see her being inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame next. Moving on, I’m going to hope that the late great David Bowie wins the award since he left us with so much over the years that it would be a great way to respect his passing and creative genius. Disturbed also did a bang up job on the Simon and Garfunkel classic tune that they are deserving.

Best Metal Performance:
“Shock Me” — Baroness
“Slivera” — Gojira
“Rotting in Vain” — Korn
“Dystopia” — Megadeth
“The Price Is Wrong” — Periphery

PiercingMetal’s Pick: Nice. These are some great nominations for the Metal stuff and while I am personally leaning towards Megadeth I would not mind seeing Gojira or Baroness win the Grammy. These last two are newer to some listeners but they have been offering up the Heavy Metal good for a bunch of years and are to be commended for it. Good luck to all participants in this category.
