Foo Fighters Lead Rock Grammy Nominations
Foo Fighters are among the rock leaders in the latest round of Grammy nominations - but they're up against some stiff competition. Dave Grohl and his foo fighting cohorts have a total of six nominations, including Album Of The Year and Best Rock Song. They have won a total of six Grammys in the past, with the last being for Best Hard Rock Performance in 2008. Others rock artists who could be called to the stage include Mumford & Sons, Coldplay, Mastodon and Red Hot Chili Peppers. Dream Theater have been given a Grammy nomination for what appears to be the first time in their lengthy career, for Best Hard Rock/Metal Performance.
