It's time to turn the noise all the way up to eleven in our lead up to the Grammy Awards as we take a look at the category for Best Hard Rock Performance.

The category this year is largely dominated by the guitar-shredding veterans who have been there and done it many times before.

Last.fm Trends looks at who might come out on top come the night of February 13th.

The winner of the category last year was AC/DC with their track "War Machine". Also amongst the nominees then was Alice in Chains for their track "Check My Brain". Nominated again this year for "A Looking In View", their odds don't look too bad when compared to the other nominees' scrobble counts on Last.fm.

Two of the nominees, Soundgarden and Stone Temple Pilots, have won the award before, however their low scrobble counts for their tracks "Black Rain" (45,787 total scrobbles) and "Between The Lines (96,700 total scrobbles), respectively, don't bode well for them this year.

It is the supergroup that is Them Crooked Vultures that look to be favorites to pick up the award for their track "New Fang". Featuring Dave Grohl of Foo Fighters/Nirvana, Josh Homme of Queens of the Stone Age and John Paul Jones of Led Zeppelin, the song has gained 826,125 scrobbles so far, over double the amount of Alice in Chains' "A Looking In View".

Make sure to check in with Last.fm Trends every weekday as we run up to the Grammy Awards. You can watch the show on CBS on February 13th.
