Commenting on the honor, Korn frontman Jonathan Davis checked in with Noisecreep, saying, "Our new album, 'Korn III: Remember Who You Are' really means a lot to us. It's a return to our roots. So the fact that the Grammy committee recognizes one of our favorite tracks from that album is an immense honor. And, to be nominated alongside Maiden — well, that makes it even more killer."
