There was a time when there were multiple rocks awards at the VMAs. Not anymore. Now, all rock backs have been shoved into one sad little category: Best Rock Video.

Never mind that rock is a big genre with a multitude of sub-genres like alternative (what we play here at The Buzz), metal, etc.

You're breaking my heart, MTV, and giving me youngest-child feelings of being ignored.

The show is less than two weeks away, and so far, there are no rock bands set to perform.

 

At least there won't be any of this:

The Rock Video of the year nominees are Arctic Monkeys, The Black Keys, Imagine Dragons, Linkin Park, and Lorde.
