Dave Grohl and his foo fighting cohorts have a total of six nominations, including Album Of The Year and Best Rock Song. They have won a total of six Grammys in the past, with the last being for Best Hard Rock Performance in 2008.

Others rock artists who could be called to the stage include Mumford & Sons, Coldplay, Mastodon and Red Hot Chili Peppers.

Here are the nominees in the Best Alternative Album Category:

  • Bon Iver – Bon Iver
  • Death Cab For Cutie – Codes And Keys
  • Foster The People – Torches
  • My Morning Jacket – Circuital
  • Radiohead – The King of Limbs
Q101’s pick:  Foster the People in an upset (when you beat Radiohead in the alt album category, it’s an upset).  We’ll see February 12th.
