Ozzy Osbourne and Turnstile Lead Rock and Metal 2023 Grammy Nominees



Ozzy Osbourne and Turnstile are among the top-nominated acts in the rock and metal categories for the 2023 Grammy Awards. The legendary metal singer scored four nods while the hardcore band earned three nominations in advance of the February 5th ceremony in Los Angeles.

Ozzy’s latest solo LP, Patient Number 9, which features a plethora of notable guest musicians, is up for Best Rock Album alongside The Black Keys’s Dropout Boogie, Elvis Costello & The Imposters’ The Boy Named If, Idles’ Crawler, Machine Gun Kelly’s Mainstream Sellout, and Spoon’s Lucifer on the Sofa.

In the Best Rock Performance category, Ozzy (“Patient Number 9” featuring Jeff Beck) and Turnstile (“Blackout”) will compete against Beck (“Old Man”), The Black Keys (“Wild Child”), Brandi Carlile (“Broken Horses”), and IDLES (“Crawl!”).

For Best Rock Song, Ozzy (“Patient Number 9” featuring Jeff Beck) and Turnstile (“Holiday”) go up against Red Hot Chili Peppers (“Black Summer”), Brandi Carlile (“Broken Horses”), and The War on Drugs (“Harmonia’s Dream”).

And in the Best Metal Performance field, Ozzy’s “Degradation Rules” (featuring Tony Iommi) and Turnstile’s “Blackout” will vie for the honor with Ghost’s “Call Me Little Sunshine,” Megadeth’s “We’ll Be Back,” and Muse’s “Kill or Be Killed.”

The inclusion of Turnstile (who were named Consequence‘s 2021 Heavy Band of the Year) and Muse in the metal category is a bit odd, but there is no category for hardcore, where Turnstile’s “Blackout” would fit, while the Muse song does feature some pretty heavy riffs. Historically, the Grammys has been pretty wide-ranging when it comes to qualifying metal. Most famously, prog-rockers Jethro Tull bizarrely beat Metallica for the very first metal Grammy in 1989.

Meanwhile, Ozzy is the subject of Consequence‘s latest cover story, in which he opens up about Patient Number 9, his current health battles, his move back to England, and much more.
