    Is this even eligible? It’s four years old and first appeared an EP in 2017. “I Wanna Be Your Slave” is getting a new video so I imagine that would probably be their submission here (even though “Zitti E Bouni” is the superior song).

    Maybe “I Wanna Be Your Slave” to song and “Zitti e bouni” to performance? Not sure how non-english songs would fare off in a songwriting award

    The fact that plastic hearts is the main discuss on a rock forum clearly shows how MANY users do not/have not listened to rock music

    It is as long as they attach it to an new album, which I think they will (probably a deluxe edition). Even if they don’t I think they can still justify it since it wasn’t released to US Radio til this year.

    They already have it on an old album, though…

    Zitti E Buoni is deserving of Best Rock Song because it is a bold statement on how older generations have failed the younger ones, but unfortunately the Grammys would hardly nominate an Italian rock group for anything. I hope I’m wrong.

    FYC: 64th Annual GRAMMY Awards

    Billie Eilish: Record Of The Year, Album Of The Year, Song Of The Year, Pop Vocal Album

    Arlo Parks: Best Alternative Music Album

    Jazmine Sullivan: Best R&B Album

    Maneskin’s Best Rock Performance submission could be their cover of Beggin’ instead of ZITTI E BUONI. It’s at #1 on the Global Spotify charts right now.

    A Rock song. In 2021. And it’s not Miley Cyrus cosplaying as rockstar, Olivia Rodrigo’s bratty pop punk smash hit or Will Smith’s daughter trying to find herself as an artist.

    Plus I’m sure Maneskin is probably at #2 in the race for Best New Artist right now.

    • AOTY, Rock Album – Teatro d’Ira – Vol. 1
    • ROTY, Rock Perf – Beggin’
    • SOTY, Rock Song – ZITTI E BUONI
    • BNA

    Beggin is virtually a pop song lol. I wouldn’t be surprised if it got slotted in Pop Duo.

    I see Maneskin in BNA, but IDK how much appeal they have in the US for a Rock overperformance, especially with their Italian songs.

    Oh I just pointed out their possible submisions. Though I do believe they’ll get a nomination for Beggin’ at least.

    But their sound doesn’t necessarily need to follow the dictionary definition of Rock. Since they present or pass mainly as a rock band, they’ll be submitted in that field.

    Usually, Pop Rock artists are only “relegated” to Pop when they’re deemed sellouts who make music for soccer moms, such as Maroon 5, Imagine Dragons, etc. Meanwhile, respected Alternative Pop artists such as Fiona & Tame Impala are accepted in the Rock field because they would be eaten alive in Pop. I don’t believe Maneskin will have a problem with that!

    tl;dr: The following nominations seem plausible:

    • Best New Artist
    • Best Rock Performance – Beggin’

    The difference is Brittany Howard, Fiona Apple, Paramore, & Foo Fighters are all Rock/Alternative artists. Miley is a pure Pop act masquerading as Rock. Voters will NOT take her seriously & would send PH to where it belongs: Pop.

    So true bestie!

    Give Ariana DeBose an oscar

    I think there’s more room for Halsey in Alternative than for Miley in Rock. I don’t remember the last time Rock Album was more competitive than Alternative.

    While I personally believe St. Vincent will have the best album out of the 10 in both categories, her competition should be weaker when compared to 2020 & 2021. 6 Alternative albums in the top 20 for AOTY was a historical moment. Fiona & Brittany probably had enough support to win AOTY without the BRP. St. Vincent will unfortunately not touch the General Field.

    Some quick 6-to-5 predictions:

    • ALTERNATIVE MUSIC ALBUM:
      • Big Red Machine (previous winners)
      • Clairo (representing cars)
      • Halsey (best selling submission)
      • Arlo Parks (BNA nominee)
      • St. Vincent (previous winner, this year’s frontrunner)
      • Sufjan Stevens (never been nominated, looong overdue)
    • ROCK ALBUM (Predicting backlash over Miley and/or MGK getting nominated)
      • AC/DC
      • Miley Cyrus
      • Foo Fighters (winner)
      • Machine Gun Kelly
      • John Mayer
      • Paul McCartney (runner-up)

    No Japanese Breakfast or Wolf Alice in alternative?

    No The Killers or Bruce Springsteen in rock?
