14 Female Rockers Egregiously Snubbed From the Grammys


Glance at the nominees for the 2013 Grammy Awards and you'll notice something oddly missing: women. WTF!?

This year men utterly own the rock and alt-rock disciplines. In all four rock-related categories—Best Rock Album, Best Rock Song, Best Rock Performance, Best Alternative Music Album—only three women are nominated. That's three out of 20. Or, in other words, women represent 15 percent of the nominations. Again: WTF!?

Sure, men had a great year in rock: Jack White, the Black Keys, Coldplay and Mumford & Sons and others all deserve their nods—they released great albums. But there are a load of albums from women, or female-fronted bands, that are criminally overlooked. 

"Click next" to check out the 14 most egregiously snubbed albums in the Grammys' rock categories.
