Rock is not dead. Rightfully so, Beck comes in as an underdog and defeats the likes of Bey, Sam Smith, and the rest of the KISS 108 hourly lineup. A true American hero.
This was the only true, front to back album in contention. You probably never heard a song from it. But that’s the way these awards should work. Because the only songs you ever heard from any of the other artists were the chart-topping, “hit” singles.
