Don't you mean, "Best Less Popular Album" or something? This stuff is alterative? Hmmm... Plans isn't very alternative, I don't think. Nah. (Oh yeah, and somehow Franz Ferdinand is considered in the "Best Rock Performance by a Duo or Group With Vocal"... so they're alternative when it comes to the album, but Rock in this one song!???!?! [Note: This is not to imply that I thought You Could Have... is best Rock album material, I'm just rambling here.])
Category 21 - Best Rock Album
(Vocal or Instrumental. Includes Hard Rock and Metal.)
* In Your Honor
* A Bigger Bang
The Rolling Stones
* How To Dismantle An Atomic Bomb
* Prairie Wind
You were right, B, U2 was considered this year as well. They won 3 grammys last year for stuff from How to..., and now they win 5 more grammys for it. 8 for one album!? Insane.
NO WAY. "Beverly Hills" was nominated for Best Rock Song????!!?!?!?!??
Also, Kelly Clarkson beats out Paul McCartney Best Pop Vocal Album (can't judge here-- haven't heard either of them).
That's all I've got for now. The Grammy Site hasn't highlighted all of the winners yet...
