An interesting mix of established and up-and-coming rock artists.
Let's face it, it's been a LONG time since any form of rock & roll has dominated the mainstream airwaves or has even managed to make much of a presence at The Recording Academy's annual Grammy awards.
While this year's list of rock nominees isn't necessarily groundbreaking in their market share, the list is actually notable. Some are quite established artists, while some are up & coming, with Greta Van Fleet getting perhaps the most recoginition via a nomination for Best New Artist. Here's what we're working with:
Best Metal Performance
Between the Buried Me (“Condemned to the Gallows”)
High on Fire (“Electric Messiah”)
Underoath (“On My Teeth”)
Best Rock Song
Greta Van Fleet (“Black Smoke Rising”)
Bring Me the Horizon (“Mantra”)
competing against alternative acts like:
