SLIPKNOT's Paul Gray on the possibility of the group winning a Grammy in the “Best Metal Performance” category (for "Left Behind") at the 44th Annual Grammy Awards, which are scheduled to air live at 8:00 PM via CBS tonight, Wednesday, February 27th from the Staples Center in Los Angeles: “It's cool that we're nominated. I guess it's somewhat of an honor to be nominated. I'm not really worried about if we win or not. I don't even expect to win, and congratulations to SYSTEM OF A DOWN, because that's who I think is going to win.
“[I know that SYSTEM OF DOWN is going to win the award], just like I knew DEFTONES were going to win it last year. It's cool to be nominated. I was going to go out there to go see it but I got really sick. Everybody's sick, we just got off the road.”
SYSTEM OF A DOWN is nominated for their track "Chop Suey!" Others that were nominated in the “Best Metal Performance” category include SLAYER ("Disciple"), BLACK SABBATH ("The Wizard"), and TOOL ("Schism").
