Black Keys nab first Grammy nom in Best Rock Song category

By Malcolm Abram Published: December 5, 2014

As the 57th Annual Grammy Award Nominations trickle out, we have our First Black Keys sighting (what, you think I endured "CBS This Morning" for all the other artists?)

BEST ROCK SONG

Ain't It Fun - Paramore
Blue Moon - Beck
Fever - The Black Keys
Gimme Something Good - Ryan Adams
Lazaretto - Jack white

Quick, someone sing me the hook of the Beck, Paramore and Ryan Adams songs!
No?
I'll give this one to The Keys (that'll make their day, I'm sure) but I gotta say I love that "Lazaretto" riff, simple, rockin' and funky.

....more to come (probably)
