The post Olivia Rodrigo’s “ballad of a homeschooled girl” Nominated for Best Rock Song at 2024 Grammys appeared first on Consequence.
Looks like all that time spent jamming to Rage Against the Machine paid off: Olivia Rodrigo has earned a 2024 Grammy nomination for Best Rock Song, her first in that category, for “ballad of a homeschooled girl.”
You read that right: Much to the chagrin of dudes with an ego and a temper and a wandering eye, pop’s reigning princess has officially infiltrated one of the Recording Academy’s rock categories. “ballad of a homeschooled girl” will compete in the category against The Rolling Stones’ “Angry,” Queens of the Stone Age’s “Emotion Sickness,” boygenius’ “Not Strong Enough,” and Foo Fighters’ “Rescued.”
The garage-inspired “ballad of a homeschooled girl” appears on Rodrigo’s new album GUTS, which also got 2024 Grammy nods for Album of the Year and Best Pop Vocal Album.
Rodrigo’s other nominations this year include Song of the Year, Record of the Year, and Best Pop Solo Performance, all for the GUTS lead single “vampire.” That’s six opportunities to add to her growing collection of Grammys trophies, which she started in 2022 when she swept for Best Pop Vocal Album (SOUR), Best Pop Solo Performance (“drivers license”), and Best New Artist.
Congratulations to the homeschooled girl! See the full list of 2024 nominees here, and stay tuned for our coverage of the awards show on February 4th, 2024. The event will be aired live on CBS and Paramount+.
After the Grammys, Rodrigo will embark on her “GUTS World Tour” with support from PinkPantheress, Remi Wolf, Chappell Roan, and veteran rock stars The Breeders. Grab tickets to the North American dates here, and all other international shows here.
