The 62nd Grammy Awards nominees are in for all categories but we thought we’d just break down the Rock, Metal, and Alternative categories for you. Take a look.

Honestly, don’t take much of this seriously as some of these bands can hardly be considered “rock” and so many songs released in 2019 were not nominated… but hey, it’s the Grammy’s. Either way; congratulations to the four or five bands playing on Krave Rock who were nominated and it will be interesting to see how they fair.
