The Grammy Awards nominations were revealed earlier today and while this is an extremely lengthy list we are only going to laud the noms for the Rock, Metal and Alternative categories here on the website. A full rundown will be on “The Chronicles of Piercing Ken” website after some considerable editing. When we look at this in Word its more than thirty pages but I digress, here now are the nominations of the categories we focus on at the PiercingMetal 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
