St. Vincent took the 2019 Best Rock Song honor for “Masseducation,” beating out Greta Van Fleet (“Black Smoke Rising”), Ghost (“Rats”), and Bring Me the Horizon (“Mantra”)  and Twenty One Pilots (“Jumpsuit”).

For Best Rock Performance, the late, great Chris Cornell was honored with the trophy. Other nominations went to Greta Van Fleet (“Highway Tune”), The Fever 333 (“Made An America”), Halestorm (“Uncomfortable”) and Arctic Monkeys (“Four Out of Five”).

In the Best Rock Album category, nominees included Alice in Chains with “Rainier Fog,” Greta Van Fleet with “From the Fires EP,” Ghost with “Prequelle,” Weezer with “Pacific Daydream” and Fall Out Boy with “M A N I A.” In the end, Michigan rockers Greta Van Fleet took that award.
