    Same. Call Me Miss Sunshine will probably get a nomination alongside Red Hot Chilli Pepper’s Black Summer and Jack White’s Taking Me Back (and probably The Black Key’s Wild Child).

    I also have a feeling that Arcade Fire is on their way to get a lot nominations: The Lightning II – Best Rock Perfomance, Best Rock Song; WE – Album Of The Year, Best Alternative Music Album; Unconditional I (Lookout Kid) – Best Alternative Music Perfomance.

    What are your choices for rock performance? Metal performance is too crowded (Korn, Ozzy Osbourne feat Jeff Beck, Muse, Rammstein, Megadeth, Dream Widow (Dave Grohl), Meshuggah, I Prevail, Lamb of God, Mastodon) so I can see Ghost submitting to rock

    I wouldn’t be surprised if Dream widow won.

    It's weird how British people say "lift" instead of "elevator" and how my dad says "you're disappointing" instead of "I love you".

    Arcade Fire deserves their second Grammy for Best Rock Performance with The Lightning I,II. They are on a position in the genre spectrum which allows them to submit in Alternative, Rock AND even Pop.

    • Album of the Year – WE
    • Alternative Music Album – WE
    • Rock Performance – The Lightning
    • Rock Song – The Lightning
    • Alternative Music Performance – Age of Anxiety

    Lookout Kid is doing well on Alternative Radio, but it’s just not Grammy material.

    I guess they’ll submit it. It has a music video, it’s doing great on the radio and it’s probably the best song off the album.

    I wanna go against everyone here and say Arcade Fire is not winning in Alternative. The Suburbs lost album even though they won AOTY. I feel like it’s going to Big Thief this time around for some reason, especially since this album is being praised everywhere.

    I forgot about The Smile. The Smile and Big Thief are more likely to win than Arcade Fire. Bookmark me.

    I personally didn’t say they were going to win, I said they’re definitely going to score some nominations. I guess this is Big Thief’s year 🤪 and I’m here for it!

    Two things about Arcade Fire is that they will be namechecked Best Alternative Music Album, and that they will lose. But they’re so early on the ballot they could sneak into the General Field and Best Music Video. AC/DC was likely in the top 15 for AOTY & ROTY last year.

    Now that they’re between Adele & Beyoncé’s names? Everyone will see Arcade Fire in the ballot.

    I totally agree with you! However, I don’t think Unconditional I (Lookout Kid) will be nominated for BMV. If The Lightning was not a double music video, I would also be counting on that.

    I really hope Florence submits Dance Fever into Alternative (enough of it is rock-y/weird that hopefully it’ll get accepted there), agreed with the other posters who think that if she does she could be a lock. In 2016 What Kind of Man got into rock and Ship to Wreck got into pop, could see that maybe happening again with King and My Love/Free (at least in terms of where they end up getting submitted).

    The alternative music album is looking really competitive now. I just really want to see Black Country New Road & The Smile get their nominations.

    Big Thief really deserve but I did not mind Arcade Fire at all, very Bowie-esque album sound I have to say

    Alternative is likely going to be The Smile. It’s a fresh way to reward a 3-time winner, Radiohead. Big Thief are a close second. I’d say Arcade Fire are in. If Florence submits here, I think she could get nominated, but she doesn’t really have the Grammy fan-base that the others have. Big Thief got nominated when they were barely known, Radiohead won 3 times, Arcade Fire have that AOTY and got nominated for lesser quality albums. I think she’ll submit to pop like usual. I think the band that could swoop in and surprise is the Yeah Yeah Yeahs. They are definitely overdue and that first single points to a really classic YYY album.

    The Smile
    Big Thief
    Yeah Yeah Yeahs
    Arcade Fire
    ____
    James Blake / Mitski / Florence + the Machine

    Florence has been nominated 8 times in rock/pop/general field categories, so I think it’s weird to count her out so quickly or say she has less of a ‘Grammy fan-base’ than Big Thief or that she will only submit to pop.
