SLIPKNOT were honored with a Grammy in the "Best Metal Performance" category in the pre-telecast ceremony at the 48th annual Grammy Awards, which are being held at the Staples Center in Los Angeles Wednesday night (Feb. 8).
The Iowa-based band, who were nominated for the sixth consecutive year, won for their single "Before I Forget", from the group's third album, "Vol. 3: (The Subliminal Verses)". Other nominees in the "Best Metal Performance" category included songs by MINISTRY, MUDVAYNE, RAMMSTEIN and SHADOWS FALL — all bands that SLIPKNOT have toured with.
"I'm honored to be nominated again," SLIPKNOT percussionist Shawn "Clown" Crahan told The Des Moines Register in December. "I have a feeling we could win this year."
"They're breaking us down to the point where we really don't care we're nominated," guitarist Jim Root stated at the time. "By the time we're so far over it, when we win one it'll be a real surprise." He added that he has a "nice collection of Grammy medallions they send you when you get nominated," manufactured by Tiffany.
The 48th Grammys are being awarded in a telecast on CBS beginning at 8:00 p.m.
