No Rock Acts Nominated in American Music Awards Rock Categories

Read Time2 Minutes, 12 Seconds

The American Music Awards nominations have been revealed and while there are several categories with “rock” in the name, the rock appears to be missing from this year’s ceremony.

There are five Pop/Rock categories, including Favorite Male Artist, Favorite Female Artist, Favorite Duo or Group, Favorite Album and Favorite Song, but each of the categories are filled by pop artists.

Post Malone, who did have some crossover at rock radio this year thanks to his collaboration with Ozzy Osbourne, is up for Favorite Male Artist – Pop/Rock and for Favorite Song – Pop/Rock for “Circles.”

With five categories dedicated to Pop/Rock, might it be time to separate these two genres especially given the one-sided nature of the nominations?

Favorite Artist – Alternative Rock perhaps comes a little closer, with Twenty One Pilots, Tame Impala and Billie Eilish all up for the honor. See all the “rock” categories for the AMA’s listed below.
