    This genre used to dominate the charts and awards. 

    Can it make a comeback in the top Grammy category?

    A Rock album won Album of the Year LAST YEAR.

    Many rock albums have been nominated the past decade (most every year).

    Let’s calm down with the clickbait topics.

    A rock album won last year. I think it’s going to skip this year. Foo Fighter’s Sonic Highways was with lukewarm reception so I don’t think it’s getting in. Don’t know any other strong contender’s in rock getting in.

    I have a gut instinct that there will be at least 1 rock album nominated for Album of the Year this year. I didn’t think that last year, and it didn’t happen.

    Alabama Shakes seem to be the frontrunners for an award for their 2nd studio effort, Sound and Color, but then again – they’ve never been nominated for this award before and are relatively new to the scene. BUT, Grammy voters have shown respect by nominating them over the past 2 years since they first broke out onto the scene (2 years ago for BNA and Rock Performance, and last year again for Rock Performance). Plus Sound & Color debuted at #1 on the Billboard 200 this year, which is a pretty impressive feat.

    Foo Fighters and Mumford & Sons are also 2 rock acts who have been previously nominated (and won, in the case of Mumford) for their previous albums. But both of their releases this eligibility cycle opened to less than stellar reviews. I’m not confident on them getting nominated.

    I think Alabama Shakes are getting in and I think Foo Fighters and Mumford and Sons have solid shots as well.

    I’m predicting the Foo Fighters will receive their third AOTY nomination.  NARAS really likes them.  Plus, it’s an incredibly weak year.

    I’m going with Alabama Shakes. They have been consistently on Grammy radar since their BNA nomination, their album debuted at #1 and was released to stellar reviews. The Grammys tend to look over vets who released less than stellar albums, so I think Foo Fighters are out.

    I’d say Florence & The Machine make it in, Foo Fighters do not.

    Based on the submissions, Alabama Shakes are really hoping to get in as much as they can. They have submissions for AOTY, ROTY, SOTY, Rock Performance/Rock Song…

    But the confusing part is that their album was submitted to the Alternative category!
