"I'm happy for the group, and, in a very weird way, I was happy to hear my melody being celebrated. However, I was slightly confused that NARAS (National Academy of Recording Arts & Sciences), the organisation which handles the Grammy Awards, would even consider nominating a track which they knew was heavily contested."

Satriani insists the tune samples his 2004 instrumental If I Could Fly.
