Composer Christopher Tin, who was nominated for two Grammys this year, credits "Boba Yetu's" success and life outside of the game to Video Games Live. It has been featured in many Video Games Live performances and was included in the PBS special.
Megadeath's song "Sudden Death", a single written for Guitar Hero: Warriors of Rock, was also nominated. It's up for Best Metal Performance. This is Megadeth's ninth nomination.
