Even though AC/DC haven't released any new music in the past year, the rock legends might take home an American Music Award in November. The band's soundtrack for Iron Man 2 (which includes AC/DC tracks spanning 1975-2008) is nominated in the Soundtrack category. AC/DC will competing with Glee: The Music, Volume 3, Showstoppers and The Twilight Saga: Eclipse soundtrack. But the Aussies aren't the only rockers up for an American Music Award. Muse, Phoenix and Vampire Weekend are all nominated for Favorite Artist in the Alternative Rock category, and mainstream rockers Train will vie for Favorite Band, Duo or Group against The Black Eyed Peas and Lady Antebellum. Country music superstars Lady Antebellum lead the pack, along with Eminem, for the most AMA nods. Each act has five nominations. The 2010 American Music Awards will air Sunday, November 21 on ABC. Performers will include Ke$ha, Katy Perry, Usher, Pink and Bon Jovi. Winners will be determined by fan voting at ABC.com and AMAvote.com. Thanks for the report to Bryan Wawzenek, Gibson.com.

    Muse should win their category, no clue why Vampire Weekend are in there and Phoenix are decent but honestly Muse are pretty much the definition of Alternative in that category (going by the band's catalog as a whole since this is strictly a band only category and not going by specific albums or tracks.)

    If AC/DC loses to Twilight and Glee then I can say for sure that all hope towards humanity will be lost

    AC/DC against Glee and Twilight ey? Wouldn't that kind of be like a reasonably able guy participating in the paralympics? Even if he wins, there is no reason to be proud of doing so.

    AC/DC competing agaisnt Glee and Twilight? They all have such hardcore fans, I'd be intrigued to see who wins. Why Vampire Weekend are nominated I have no idea, I really hope dishwater indie isn't getting popular in America. Twilight is probably to blame.
