The 54th Annual GRAMMY Awards are upon us this weekend, and Last.fm Trends is here to investigate how the nominees are doing amongst true music fans.

Today they’re looking at the tracks up for Best Rock Song, and there’s some heavy hitters in competition. Read on to see what their scrobbles predict.

Nominated are “The Cave” by Mumford & Sons; “Down by the Water” by The Decemberists; “Every Teardrop is a Waterfall” by Coldplay; “Lotus Flower” by Radiohead; and “Walk” by Foo Fighters. With a combined scrobble count of over 9,000,000, there’ll be plenty of music fans eager to hear which track emerges victorious.

The Decemberists seem outside bets with the least-popular track, followed by Foo Fighters then Coldplay. Out of all the nominees, it’s British folk rockers Mumford & Sons who provide the shocks: with 2,930,823 fewer listeners than Radiohead overall, their track “The Cave” still pulls in 165,912 more listeners than “Lotus Flower.” We’ll have to see if the GRAMMY goes to an established artist, or a track that’s come to represent an incredible rise for a new band.

Tune into the GRAMMYs at 8pm this Sunday Feb 12th on CBS. In the meantime, hear all the nominees on GRAMMY radio by clicking below.
