    Is it some kind of stupid running joke in the industry or something?

    Lorde is NOT rock. :facepalm:

    But hey, it's nice to see LP get nominated again and this should boost up the album sales for THP a bit and UIG could get more radio airplay and a higher score on the charts, mostly rock and alternative related.

    It's funny, actually - in the Revolver article, Shinoda mentions Lorde as well:

    It's a readers' poll. It's not what the RS staff believe. They think THP was meh, but thanks to Mike linking the readers' poll to his Twitter fans, THP has the second highest number of votes.

    I remember last year the Billboard Music Awards gave Top Rock Song to Gotye's "Somebody That I Used to Know". Just saying.

    The problem is the music industry used the term "rock" as an advertisement in name only these days, they hardly promote the genre with the actual sounds of rock music these days.

    I'd really like to see UIG win an award;Lorde doesn't deserve to be up there, Imagine Dragons and Arctic Monkeys have both had those songs out for like a year (but young people LOVE those songs to death), so Black Keys remain.

    Well, it's about time, after that whole two-world-wars thing :lol:

    Meterora sold over six million here in the states and it's still a 4 time platinum album. Since LP's second record just went gold for the seventh time, it pretty much sold over 700,000 copies. Am I a right or is less/more than that?

    Dad: "what are they singing about?"
    Me: "Hard to explain....it's very abstract."

    In most of the songs on the album, when you pair Shinoda's rap verses with the rest of the lyrics, things do become quite abstract :p

    That song is more rockish in style than anything Lorde's released.

    Here's the thing: Lorde, Mumford & Sons, Gotye – they make alternative music. Another name for alternative music happens to be alternative rock. I think this is why they get described as "rock", even though most would disagree that there's anything "rock" about them.
