Okay first I need to recover from the shock that Radiohead got nominated for the fucking grammy awards! And that too in so many categories!

Next, a few comments:

While I enjoyed Death Magnetic to an extent, it does not deserve Best Rock Album!

It would be nice to see In Rainbows win it, and I actually think it has a pretty good chance. But the only one I really care about is Eddie being nominated for Solo Rock Performance. "Rise" is a beautiful song and my favorite off of the Into the Wild soundtrack and I would love for it to win. Go Ed! Here's the song in case some of you haven't heard it -

YouTube - Eddie Vedder Rise

Riiiiiiise UP.

Coldplay is going to sweep. Watch In Rainbows win Best Alternative Album, which is a mediocre category this year.

this is Coldplay's year... this is them becoming U2, if they sweep that's it, they've made it, and they'll sell out Wembley Stadium

They could really become the biggest band in the world... except that around that time we'll know about U2's new album






and THIS category is the most interesting

it's sad because as much as I like Viva, In Rainbows is head and shoulders above it.

Viva la Vida is one of the best albums of the century so far, ass. Get it right.

My serious answer though is yes, that's entirely correct.
