2011 Grammy awards is just few hours to go while 53rd Grammy Awards Nominees has been out few days ago, I was actually surprised with Best Metal Performance category.

Frankly speaking I'm surprised to learned that long time metal bands like Iron Maiden, Megadeth and Slayer are still around. Though, I may not be surprised that these bands' are behind movie soundtracks, UFC events, wrestling that requires heavy rock music.

Well, I'm just happy to learned that metal rock category is part of Grammy Awards. At least in the coming Grammy Awards I won't be surprised again to know about metal performance category. Yeah, I know that Grammy is all about music awards regardless of its genre.

Among the nominees my bet is Korn. Not really a metal head person but I'm a long time fan of Korn, that's my only reason. Who's yours?
