Why the Grammys Are Clueless About Metal

Journal Entry: Mon Feb 11, 2013, 7:53 PM
Unless you've been away from the headbanging world, you are aware that Halestorm won the 2013 Grammy for "Best Hard Rock/Metal Performance". This win is historic in the sense that singer Lzzy Hale is the first female singer to ever be nominated for that category and win.

By all means, congrats to Halestorm. They are a hard working band and "Love Bites (So Do I)" is a great song.

But once again, this decision reflects the cluelessness of the National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences (NARAS), the head of the Grammys, when it comes to metal.

The hard rock/metal category has undergone several changes.

The first and only "Best Hard Rock/Metal Performance Vocal or Instrumental" Grammy was awarded in 1989. It was expected that Metallica would win. Their album "…And Justice For All" had spawned the hit "One" and was their best-selling album to date.
