2010 Grammy Award of Metal Performance Goes To...

Judas Priest for "Dissident Aggressor" off of their recent live album. I predicted some time ago that Slayer would win it, but expressed a preference for Megadeth or Judas Priest. This is a pleasant surprise. I am not predicting any sort of real change in Grammy voters in how they feel about metal. The fact that they gave Judas Priest their first Grammy some 40 years after the band's formation shows that they don't understand today's music. "Dissident Aggressor" is a song which first appeared nearly 30 years ago. Whatever. The other problem is of course the fact that they don't hand out the Metal Performance Grammy during the televised show. Congratulations anyway Judas Priest.
