Black Sabbath, Dream Theater, Led Zeppelin Earn Grammy Nominations

The 2014 Grammy nominations were released Friday night — and let's just say Black Sabbath are very well represented.

The band's 2013 semi-reunion album, 13, was nominated for Best Rock Album, along with David Bowie's The Next Day, Kings Of Leon's Mechanical Bull, Led Zeppelin's Celebration Day, Queens Of The Stone Age's …Like Clockwork and Neil Young with Crazy Horse's Psychedelic Pill.

Their single from 13, "God Is Dead?," is up for Best Metal Performance and Best Rock Song.

Other guitar-centric acts to show up on several Grammy short lists are Jack White, whose "I'm Shakin'' was nominated for Best Rock Performance, plus Anthrax's "TNT" and Dream Theater's "The Enemy Inside," both of which are up for Best Metal Performance.

The list also features a host of classic rock names, including Paul McCartney and the Rolling Stones.

The 56th Grammy ceremony will take place January 26 in Los Angeles. Below, you can see a list of rock-, blues- and guitar-centric nominations. For the complete list of the 2014 nominations, visit grammy.com.
