Grammy nominated act Nothing More have opened up about snagging nominations in all three Rock categories at this year's Grammys—and what it's like being nominated alongside some of the biggest acts in the genre. When talking about the future of the genre, the band know that what they're doing isn't going to please every rock fan around.

“I think it's irrelevant more than it's dead. What rock was is dead,” frontman Jonny Hawkins says. “I think there's something that we're in some way apart of, or leading, the way it's going to reopen up in some way.”

Of course, this goes into the bigger picture of nominees as a whole. The band have seen some not-so-positive words on their nomination, and though they may not have the name or the size of following, they don't see their nomination as unfitting.

“I view us as fitting right in. When it comes to the music, people mistake brand and music,” Hawkins explains. “Many bands who have been around a long time have built a huge brand, and many times, people mistake that for great music. Sometimes they go hand in hand, sometimes they don't.”
