AC/DC Nominated For Billboard Music Award

(hennemusic) AC/DC have been named as a finalist for "Top Rock Album" as part of the 2015 Billboard Music Awards. The Australian band's latest record, "Rock Or Bust", will compete in the category alongside projects by The Black Keys ("Turn Blue"), Coldplay ("Ghost Stories"), Lorde ("Pure Heroine") and Hozier's self-titled release.

The pop- and rap-friendly annual event organized by the music industry magazine is notorious for ignoring rockers - even within the "rock" category. Recent "Top Rock Album" winners have included pop artists like fun and Coldplay over actual rock acts like Foo Fighters and Green Day.

Billboard Music Awards finalists are based on album and digital song sales, radio airplay, streaming, touring and social-media interactions. The 2015 awards are based on the reporting period of March 10, 2014 through March 8, 2015. Read more here.
