Metallica’s Robert Trujillo accepts the Grammy for Best Metal Performance for the song “72 Seasons.”

Metallica clinched the Best Metal Performance at the 2024 Grammy Awards for “72 Seasons,” standing out as the sole heavy act to secure a Grammy amidst wins by Boygenius and Paramore in rock categories. Accepting the award was bassist Robert Trujillo during the Premiere Ceremony.

This victory, marking their ninth Grammy win, solidifies Metallica’s status as the most awarded metal band, surpassing contenders like Disturbed, Ghost, Slipknot, and Spiritbox.

“I just want to say that Lars, James, and Kirk could not be here because they’re with their families, and families are everything to all of us,” began Trujillo during his acceptance speech. “I live in Southern California, so it’s a little easier.”

He added, “We want to thank Greg Fidelman, our incredible producer, and our recording team. This is like family. When you’re making an album like this, you’re jamming, you’re collaborating. …. Keep those instruments in your hands. Let’s keep the youth making music, and keep the dream alive.”
