Black bloody Sabbath

It wasn’t a particularly great showing for metal and hard rock in last night’s Grammy Awards.

While Black Sabbath walked away with a gong for Best Metal Performance via God Is Dead?, they also lost out on awards to the likes of Paul McCartney and Led Zeppelin in other categories. Yes, that’s Led Zeppelin. They won the Grammy for best rock album. For a live album. Sure.

It’s almost like it’s a totally nonsensical awards show that has no bearing on or relevance to metal whatsoever. Almost.

Anyhoo, here are the full list of winners for the Rock Field in last night’s Grammys:

Best Rock Performance
Alabama Shakes – ‘Always Alright’
David Bowie – ‘The Stars Are Out Tonight’
Imagine Dragons – ‘Radioactive’ – WINNER
Led Zeppelin – ‘Kashmir’

Best Metal Performance
Anthrax – ‘T.N.T.’
Black Sabbath – ‘God Is Dead?’ – WINNER
Dream Theater – ‘The Enemy Inside’
Killswitch Engage – ‘In Due Time’

Best Rock Song
Gary Clark Jr – ‘Ain’t Messin ‘Round’
Paul McCartney, Dave Grohl, Krist Novoselic, Pat Smear – ‘Cut Me Some Slack’ – WINNER
The Rolling Stones – ‘Doom and Gloom’
Black Sabbath – ‘God Is Dead?’

Best Rock Album
Black Sabbath – 13
David Bowie – The Next Day
Kings Of Leon – Mechanical Bull
