Best of Rock 2020 Awards - The Winners!

LAS VEGAS, Nevada - After all the deliberation was completed, the Powered By Rock “Best Rock Music 2020” awards have been finalized, and the winners for each of the 5 categories have been selected.

To give the full picture of the nominees and the winners, here are the categories and the nominees followed by the Winners listed for each category.

In some of the categories, the separation between winner and runner up was so razor thin that it almost came down to a coin flip.

Thankfully, in the end, a few more listens and a few more conversations made the decisions more clear.

Without further delay, here are the nominees and the winners (listed in bold below each category).

Winner for Album of the Year - The New Abnormal by the Strokes!
