Modest Mouse are in the running again to win a Grammy award.

Rapper Lupe Fiasco sampled Modest Mouse's Float On on his single The Show Goes On, that was released back in 2010. The song was later featured on his album Lasers that was released in early 2011.

Fiasco has now been nominated for three awards at this year's Grammys: Best Rap Performance, Best Rap Song and Best Rap Album. Should he win the award for Best Rap Song, he will share the Grammy with Isaac Brock, Eric Judy and Dann Gallucci seeing as how they are the original songwriters.

Modest Mouse was last nominated for a Grammy in 2005, when they were up for Best Rock Song and Best Alternative Music Album for Float On and Good News For People Who Love Bad News. They lost to U2 and Wilco.

Not the best way for Modest Mouse to win their first Grammy, but with these awards having become a bit of a joke in the past decade, I'm not sure anyone cares. But thanks to all the people that have been sending this tip in.
