Video Games At The Grammys -- Two Video Game Songs Get Nominated

A song from Sid Meier's Civilization IV and a song from Guitar Hero: Warriors of Rock have been nominated for Grammys. This is the first time songs from a video game's soundtrack have been nominated. 

The "hit" song "Baba Yetu" from Civ 4 is nominated for 'Best Instrumental Arrangement Accompanying Vocalist.' 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.  

The 53rd Annual Grammy Awards air on February 13, 2011 on CBS.
