Of course, it will eventually lose to "Let's Make More Money", the theme from Finding Dory.

Yeah, I doubt the suits who decide the nominees are into metal, let alone Japanese metal. They'd prefer if it were rerecorded with Scarlett Johannsen or Meryl Streep on lead vocals, with Harvey and Bob Weinstein filling the rhythm section, after which ol' Casting Couch Harve demands no less than 15 cuts to make it "marketable" to American audiences.

But still, any exposure is good exposure. We need all of X's stuff out over here instead of as $30 imports.

doomy: You'd think so, but then they got that video of the Academy people talking to headbangers from the second Decline of Civilization movie. Also, don't forget that time Steven Tyler did a performance for one of their Oscar shows.

That's true. But surely headbangers by way of Penelope Spheeris and Aerosmith in their Bon Jovi phase are the closest they've gotten, save for somebody running into Ozzy and Sharon. I'm sure she has a few names in her rolodex.
