MEGADETH is among the nominees for the 54th annual Grammy Awards, which will be held on Sunday, February 12, 2012 at Staples Center in Los Angeles. The band’s tenth Grammy nomination is for its new single, “Public Enemy No. 1”, off MEGADETH‘s latest album, “TH1RT3EN”, which came out on November 1.
Commented MEGADETH mainman Dave Mustaine: “In such uncertain times, it’s just an honor to be recognized by our peers, and anything above that is remarkable.”
“Public Enemy No. 1” actually marks the second Grammy nomination for music from “TH1RT3EN”, as the song “Sudden Death” was first unveiled in the 2010 video game “Guitar Hero: Warriors of Rock” and received a “Best Metal Performance” nod.
