The 64th Annual Grammy Awards Nominees have been revealed in a mile-long list of categories and that’s to be expected with this particular award since it is essentially the Academy Awards of the recording industry. Now, with that being said, as a scribe who leans towards the heavier side of music there are only a few categories that remotely interest me so please peruse below on the nominations in the Rock and Metal Category for the 2022 Awards broadcast.

Best Rock Performance: For new vocal or instrumental solo, duo/group or collaborative rock recordings.

Shot In The Dark – AC/DC
Know You Better (Live From Capitol Studio A) – Black Pumas
Nothing Compares 2 U – Chris Cornell
Ohms – Deftones

The Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame 2021 Nominees Are:

rock and roll hall of fame

The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame have just revealed their “Class Of 2021” Nominations, so after some reminder premise on how one achieves such an “honor” I will line out the list for you in full and then offer up some personal editorial viewpoint. Let’s go.

The Criteria: Currently, groups or individuals are qualified for induction 25 years after the release of their first record. Nominees should have demonstrable influence and significance within the history of rock and roll. Four categories are recognized: Performers, Non-Performers, Early Influences, and Sidemen (as of 2000). The General Public aka “Fans” get to participate in an online “Fan Voting” process but at the end of the day this really doesn’t amount to anything in terms of the induction process as it all sums up to one single vote.

The Nominations for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame’s Class of 2021 Are: Mary J. Blige, Kate Bush, Devo, Foo Fighters, the Go-Go’s, Iron Maiden, Jay-Z, Chaka Khan, Carole King, Fela Kuti, LL Cool J, New York Dolls, Rage Against the Machine, Todd Rundgren, Tina Turner, and Dionne Warwick.
