Hi! Decided to create this topic because I don’t see too many people discussing this. What are some of your predictions? IMO, both Arcade Fire and RHCP will have their albums nominated and probably some songs as well (The Lightning, Black Summer). On the Alternative Field, I guess Big Thief and The Smile’s new records have a big chance to be nominated, and I hope Snail Mail’s Valentine get a Best Rock Perf. nomination. Maybe Mitski’s The Only Heartbreaker for Best Rock Song? On the Rock Field, i would say Alison/Robert, The War On Drugs and Fontaines D.C. should get their albums nominated. I’m excited to hear Soccer Mommy’s new album and hoping that the Arctic Monkeys releases their new one soon.May 12, 2022 at 3:09 pm #1204950413
I have RHCP, Ghost and Dream Widow (Dave Grohl) for rock album, rock song and rock or metal performance.
Rober and Alison will be nominated in the american roots field.May 13, 2022 at 9:31 am #1204951026
Björk has a new album coming out this year, supposedly summer. If true, she’s a shoo-in in Alternative.May 13, 2022 at 10:53 am #1204951121
Björk, Big Thief and Arcade Fire are all l-words in Alternative Music Album.
Won’t be surprised if The Smile is nominated too. Thom Yorke’s previous side project received a bunch of nominations even though he’s in the bottom of the ballot.May 14, 2022 at 1:41 am #1204951580
This is who I think has a chance:
Best Rock Song & Best Rock Performance:
Red Hot Chili Peppers Black Summer
Jack White Taking Me Back
My Chemical Romance The Foundations of Decay
Wet Leg Chaise Longue
Fontaines D.C. Jackie Down The Line
King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard The Dripping Tap
The War On Drugs I Don’t Live Here Anymore
Paramore & Arctic Monkeys if they release something as well
All of these could get nominated for Best Rock Album as well maybe black midi could get a nomination too.
Best Alternative Music Album:
Arcade Fire WE
Animal Collective Time Skiffs
Big Thief Dragon New Warm Mountain I Believe In You
Beach House Once Twice Melody
The Smile A Light For Attracting Attention
Black Country, New Road Ants From Up There
Mitski Laurel Hell
Florence + The Machine Dance Fever (if its submitted for alternative)
Bjork if she releases anything as wellMay 14, 2022 at 4:05 am #1204951686
Someone has to convince Florence’s team to go Alternative. It would be between her and Big Thief this year with The Smile and Arcade Fire as the safe back-ups. Pop will leave her empty -handed and I don’t think her songs are heavy enough to win Rock Performance or Song.May 14, 2022 at 11:51 am #1204951990
If Bjork releases a new album, can we all do a prayer circle that she is nominated and finally wins a Grammy?May 15, 2022 at 10:06 am #1204952746

Ghost for rock performance or metal performance?May 15, 2022 at 5:24 pm #1204953079
do y’all think there’s some, “young alternative prodigies” that’ll get nominated, like japanese breakfast and arlo parks in this year’s ceremony? i think black country new road and wet leg have the best chance to pull this off, with maybe snail mail and magdalena bay as other contenders?May 15, 2022 at 6:20 pm #1204953142

I wouldn’t be surprised if The BBC Sessions by Green Day got a nom, considering Black P(ayola)umas made it like that.Not now
