    Well damn. I think those 2 singles sound a little too pop to be nom’d in the Rock Field. I guess I’ll just hold out hope for an album nom then.

    I could see “It’s Not Living” making it in the rock field. “Give Yourself a Try” definitely would.

    Don’t forget about the Sheeran/Mars/Stapleton song, which is actually doing well at rock radio. That starpower will be very hard even for the snobby rock panel to deny.

    The National and Vampire Weekend could slip into those rock categories with the right submission.

    I’d go with “Quiet Light” or “You Had Your Soul With You” for The National. “This Life,” “Harmony Hall,” or “Sunflower” would all work for Vampire Weekend.

    Bon Iver will probably be submitted to Pop Duo/Group and Vampire Weekend could arguably submit there as well. Both stand little chance of getting in that crowded category though.

    Do y’all think Brittany Howard’s solo single “He Loves Me” will slip into Rock Performance or Song??? Her group Alabama Shakes has won 3 previous Grammys in the Rock Field.

    Well, The 1975’s new single “People” is definitely and unmistakably a rock song. No arguing it could be pop, lol. Very different sound for them. As a fan, I don’t hate it, but I hope their new album isn’t all in this style.

    I’m wondering if they could/would submit “People” to Best Metal Performance??? Or just Rock. Idk if there is bias towards nominating only metal acts in the metal category. Not exactly my type of music.

    Does anyone know if “Sincerity is Scary” by the 1975 was submitted last year? I thought I read somewhere it was but I’m not sure.

    Shame that they nominated Love It If We Made It last year, it could’ve had some potential this year for sure.

    It seems likely that it might get a Rock Song nomination.

    This is most likely getting a nod for Rock Performance. The song isn’t Metal at all. It’s a pure Rock song.

    For Metal, you’d think more hard and fast acts like Slipknot, who I’m hoping get a nomination in the Rock Album and Metal Performance categories this coming Grammys.

    I think We Are Not Your Kind is going to win Best Rock Album. Because it’s getting huge acclaim by critics.

    Tell Me I’m Pretty was a great choice. I’m not a 100% convinced Social Cues would give them their second win in the Rock Album category.

    Question: What are the standout Rock Compositions from this season that could really vie for the Rock Song award? Last year had some AMAZING nominees. “Ghost” and “MANTRA” were admittedly some of my favorite jams among them, but of course, the ultimate jam, “Masseduction,” had to take the cake. (I’m still a bit upset of her Alternative Music Album loss to Beck though).

    If you take a look at the nominees, they weren’t exactly the most popular of rock recordings from the 61st cycle; however, we can’t deny them being deserving of their nominations. So, popularity aside, what are the outright BEST rock compositions from this 62nd Grammy season?

    Western Stars is an Americana album, not rock. This Land, I believe, is more fitting in the Contemporary Blues field.

    Thanks, I’ll fix those.
