Shadows Fall land Grammy nom

Holy shit:

Category 18 - Best Metal Performance (For solo, duo, group or collaborative performances, with vocals. Singles or Tracks only.)

• What Drives The Weak / Shadows Fall / Track from: The War Within [Century Media Records]

So the Grammys heard of Mass metal? That's nice. We figure they've got about as much chance of winning as Killswitch did last year, but on the upside . . . Shadows Fall appear to have signed to Atlantic? Awaiting confirmation . . .

OK, quick rundown of the other holy-shit moments from this morning's announcements (full text here):

Category 12 - Best Dance Recording
• Daft Punk Is Playing At My House / LCD Soundsystem / The DFA, producers / The DFA & Andy Wallace, mixers / LCD Soundsystem [DFA Records/Capitol Records]

Category 13 - Best Electronic/Dance Album
• LCD Soundsystem / LCD Soundsystem / [DFA Records/Capitol Records]

Field 5 - AlternativeCategory 22 - Best Alternative Music Album(Vocal or Instrumental.)
• Funeral / The Arcade Fire [Merge Records]

Also, three questions:

1) Bruce Springsteen put out a record this year?

2) Who the fuck is Sugarland? And who'd they have to blow to get mentioned in the best new artist field?

3) White Stripes are "pop" now? Not "rock"?
