Baba what now? Civilization IV isn't the only game with a link to Grammy nominations -- Guitar Hero: Warriors of Rock has now made it into the mix. Megadeth's track "Sudden Death" has been nominated for "Best Metal Performance," alongside songs by Iron Maiden, Korn, Lamb of God, and Slayer.
You're probably thinking "What's the big deal? There are a lot of songs that have appeared in music games that have been nominated for and even won Grammys?" True, but here's the difference: Megadeth's Dave Mustaine has said that he wrote the song specifically for Neversoft's band title, making it as wild and complicated as possible to challenge gamers.
We'll find out if that paid off for Mustaine when the Grammy awards air on CBS this coming February 13.
