As the performers on the 54th Annual Grammy Awards continue to be unveiled, it looks like a broad variety of artists will take the stage.
Mark the Foo Fighters as those carrying the banner for rock.
The Foos will join a list that inclues Nicki Minaj, Kelly Clarkson, Taylor Swift, Jason Aldean and Bruno Mars, according to MTV.
The Foo Fighters are tied with Mars and British singer Adele with six nominations, second-most behind rapper Kanye West’s seven.
The band is in the running for Album of the Year with the 2011 release of the critically-acclaimed Wasting Light, pitted against Adele’s 21, Mars’ Doo-Wops & Hooligans, Rihanna’s Loud and Lady Ga Ga’s Born This Way.
In related news, Foo Fighters guitarist Chris Shiflett actually stopped by the Fender Showroom this week to take a look at a few guitars before the Feb. 12 gala.
The Foo Fighters currently have a few tour dates scheduled in Japan and Argentina for 2012.
