(antiMusic) We won't bore you with the pop, R&B, rap and other Grammy winners and get right to rock which actually outsells all of the genres that the out of touch academy (and TV programmers) seem to focus on. Though calling some of these "rock" is a bit questionable. But this is the organization that gave Jethro Tull a heavy metal award.

Metallica took home the best Metal Performance Grammy for "My Apocalypse," from "Death Magnetic." Hard Rock honors went to The Mars Volta's "Wax Simulacra." Alternative Music Album went to "In Rainbows" from Radiohead. And Rock Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocals went to "Sex on Fire" from Kings of Leon. Then Solo Rock Vocal Performance went to "Gravity," by John Mayer. (rock?)

Coldplay's "Viva La Vida or Death and All His Friends" took Rock Record honors and the title track took Song of the Year and the rightfully titled Pop Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocals. Record of the Year went to "Please Read The Letter," from Robert Plant and Alison Krauss and the album it came from, "Raising Sand," took tops honors for album of the year.

Of course, Springsteen can't leave the Grammy's empty handed, he took home the Rock Song Grammy for "Girls in Their Summer Clothes," from his Magic album and Rock Instrumental Performance went to "Peaches En Regalia" from Zappa Plays Zappa featuring Steve Vai and Napoleon Murphy Brock.
