2018 Grammy Nominees

posted by @Radio1045Johnny -

The 2018 Grammy Nominees have been announced, and from first glance it looks to me like Alternative and Rock have once again been shunned, which is OK...does anyone really take the Grammy's seriously? (Ha - I'm sure if ALT artists were nominated, we'd be all over it!). 

I've listed some of the bigger and more relevant awards below. Get the full list of Grammy Nominees HERE (The Grammy Awards will be presented on January 28th in NYC)
