The 64th Annual Grammy Awards tonight, and we’ll keep track of all the rock and metal winners as they unfold.
Deftones, Dream Theater, Gojira, Mastodon and Rob Zombie have all been nominated for Best Metal Performance. Last year, Loudwire’s 2020 artist Poppy made history in this category as the first female solo artist to be nominated, and the award went to Body Count for “Left-Rush.”
The Best Rock Performance category also made history in 2021: for the first time, an entire rock division at Grammy was filled by women. The winner was Fiona Apple. This year’s nominees are AC / DC, Black Pumas, Chris Cornell, Deftones and Foo Fighters, who sadly lost their drummer, Taylor Hawkins, last month.
The 64th annual Grammy Awards – originally scheduled to air on January 31 but rescheduled due to the ongoing COVID-19 epidemic – finally premieres this Sunday (April 3).
