Foo Fighters Sweep Grammy Awards
Foo Fighters swept the 54th Grammys this year, with five new awards to their name. The band took awards for every one of their nominations, including best rock album ("Wasting Light"), best rock performance and best rock song ("Walk"), long form music video ("Back And Forth") and hard rock/metal performance ("White Limo"). To top off the most successful night of their career the band performed "Walk", which you can see below. The Foos left little room for other rock artists to take a win, leaving nominees like Jeff Beck, Kings of Leon and Red Hot Chili Peppers without reward for their efforts. 2012's big winner was Adele, who dominated the ceremony with a total of six awards. She matched Beyonce's former record of six awards in a single night for a female artist. Skrillex owned the dance categories, firmly placing him and dubstep in the mainstream, and Kanye West ruled the rap categories. Foo Fighters are yet to post a thank you to their official website, but once the celebrations have calmed down you can probably expect a heartfelt message to supporters. They are expected to start writing a followup to "Wasting Light" this year.
