    I’m not sure about that. I think “U.F.O.F.” is more alternative (something between folk and rock) than “Two Hands”, but both are great albums. Maybe their chances of winning are better in the rock field.

    Green Day, Father of All… Better not get nowhere near rock album. Just such a disappointment of an album. Like we all know I love the band but this was just brutal

    Imploding the Mirage by The Killers could be a strong contender for Best Rock Album. Hopefully Green Day won’t get nominated.

    I don’t see how Green Day gets in. The aggressively bad reviews and poor fan reception is the only noise that album made.

    “Jaime” is a great album, but I don’t think it’s a Rock Album. I don’t find many rock sounds on it. There are blues, soul, folk, R&B…
    but very little Rock & Roll. I think it should be sent to Alternative Music Album.

    I don’t think Beck will be nominated at this round. His album is completely forgotten by pretty much everyone.

    Would love to see The 1975 pop up in Rock Song or Performance. I’m not counting on ‘Notes’ getting an Best Alternative Album nomination- if they missed with ‘A Brief Inquiry’, which is their most critically praised album, then I doubt they will be able to pull it off this year.

    I think you have to take Rock/Metal predictions with a pinch of salt because they are extremely unpredictable most of the time and likely wrong.

    Last year absolutely nobody predicted Bones UK, Rival Sons, I Prevail, Karen O/Danger Mouse, Death Angel, Candlemass and Killswitch Engage to get nominated and they did.

    The year before that was Bring Me the Horizon with the shock nomination for Mantra.

    MY NOMINATION PREDICTION RESULTS
    Best Alternative Album - 2 out of 5 in 2019, 4 out of 5 in 2020, 3 out of 5 in 2021.
    Best Rock Performance - 2 out of 5 in 2019, 3 out of 6 in 2020, 0 out of 5 in 2021.
    Best Rock Song - 3 out of 5 in 2019, 2 out of 5 in 2020, 0 out of 5 in 2021.
    Best Rock Album - 1 out of 5 in 2019, 2020 and 2021.
    Best Metal Performance - 0 out of 5 in 2019, 2 out of 5 in 2020, 3 out of 5 in 2021.

    I totally agree. They had been the most unpredictable the last years. However, a lot of people are predicting too many “alternative” artists for rock song/performance. And one thing I’ve noticed is that in the rock field, they tend to go for rock songs that lean more towards blues, hard rock, folk/rock, more guitar-driven as oppose to synth-driven psychedelic rock. So expect to see more Brittany Howard, The Killers, maybe even Ozzy Osbourne rather than The 1975, Fiona Apple, Tame Impala.

    Alternative doesn’t have Song/Performance categories, so Alternative acts usually go to rock for track nominations (see: Vampire Weekend’s Harmony Hall last year).
