In accepting the award, IN FLAMES frontman Anders Fridén asked the audience to get up on their feet.

"This is the third time IN FLAMES have won a [Swedish] Grammy and it feels extremely good," he said and joked: "Thanks a lot to the Swedish people, [distributor] Sound Pollution and all you people sitting down!"
