Grohl Excited By Unusual Grammy Category

Subscribe Foo Fighters

FOO FIGHTERS rocker DAVE GROHL is more excited about competing in the unusual Grammy category of Best Surround-Sound Album next month (FEB06) than being nominated for Best Rock Album and Best Rock Song.

The former NIRVANA drummer is more optimistic about his chances of winning in the performance categories - but he would rather triumph in the technical category which pushes the boundaries of sound.

He says, "You know, to be completely honest, that is the one that we're the most excited about.

"I mean, it's great to get the best rock record and the best rock song and all that other stuff, but something as wickedly technical and bad a** as a true 5.1 surround record, that's pretty kick a**. That just reeks of PINK FLOYD or something like that.

"Dude, the competition is stiff. I didn't even know who else was in our categories. We're clearly the underdog. We might stand alongside COLDPLAY, but that's about it. That's where that line is drawn.
