Alternative rock all-star team ends 56th GRAMMY Awards with a mashup of Nine Inch Nails' "Copy of A" and Queens of the Stone Age's "My God Is the Sun."

Seconds after Daft Punk won Album of the Year for the night's final prize, a tag team of rock veterans closed out CBS' telecast of the 56th GRAMMY Awards.

Nine Inch Nails' Trent Reznor took center stage early, offering "Copy of A" from his 2013 album "Hesitation Marks." Fleetwood Mac singer/guitarist Lindsey Buckingham joined in, along with Dave Grohl, manning the drumkit along with frequent collaborator Josh Homme. Grohl collaborated with Homme's Queens of the Stone Age on their 2013 album "…Like Clockwork," reprising his decade-old role of guest drummer.

Homme grabbed the spotlight next, as the ensemble kicked into the gritty riffage of the "…Like Clockwork" single "My God Is the Sun" to close out the show.

While the night's previous rock offerings leant towards either very new (Imagine Dragons) or very tenured (Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr) the closing performance filled in the gaps of the genre's last two decades.

Queens of the Stone Age's "…Like Clockwork" was nominated for Best Rock Album and Nine Inch Nails' "Hesitation Marks" was nominated for Best Alternative Music Album.
