Sabbath, Zeppelin Score Grammy Wins
Black Sabbath capped off their triumphant return with a win at the Grammys last night, while Led Zeppelin also scored for their reunion release.
Sabbath's win was in the Best Hard Rock/Metal Performance category for the song “God Is Dead?” from 13, their first full album of new material with Ozzy Osbourne since the ‘70s.
They were up against Anthrax (who were nominated for an AC/DC cover from their Anthems EP), Dream Theater (for “The Enemy Inside” from their new self-titled album), and Killswitch Engage and Volbeat.
Led Zeppelin meanwhile took out the Best Rock Album award for Celebration Day, the live album documenting their one-time reunion concert, which took place in 2007 but wasn't released until late 2012. Other nominees in that category included Neil Young, Black Sabbath, Kings of Leon, David Bowie and Queens of the Stone Age.
