    Best rock album

    Best rock song

    As I was looking, I noticed all of my favorite albums and albums I believed could win AOTY were from alternative artists. What’s everyones predictions for nominations and wins in these categories?

    I was just searching to see if people had predictions for these! I don’t really listen to Alternative but the album category seem stacked this year.

    I’d imagine Fiona, Brittany, and Tame Impala are safe. I hope FKA Twigs gets some recognition but her album might be “forgotten” since it came out last year.

    Alternative Album is pretty much about how many women they let in. You got Fiona, Brittany, HAIM, Phoebe, FKA, Rina and maybe The Big Thief. I wouldn’t be surprised by any of their inclusions. Folks were touting Phoebe as a sure thing months ago. But even then, it looked sketchy to me.

    I’m really hoping Alt Album is majority female finally. I’m sick of all male rock bands filling out that category when they should be in Rock Album, pushing out female artists that are making truly alternative music.

    That being said, I’d have Brittany Howard and HAIM in rock as well.

    If I was being true to what I think modern alt music is I’d go with:…

    Alternative Album
    Fiona Apple
    Phoebe Bridgers
    FKA twigs
    Perfume Genius
    Rina Sawayama
    (Big Thief)

    Rock Album
    The 1975
    HAIM
    Brittany Howard
    The Strokes
    Hayley Williams
    (The Killers)

    If Shameika gets in both Rock Song and Rock Performance I’ll be so happy!

    I think Perfume Genius submitted in Alternative. He could definitely sneak in.

    I have Perfume Genius in Eng Album and as a dark horse for Alt Album and Music Video. He could very well be respected enough to be acknowledged with a nom or a two.

    I really only have Beck in due to Pharrell being involved with the album and as a namecheck. He’s gotten in many times since the start of his career.
