GRETA VAN FLEET can now add "Grammy winners" to their ever-increasing list of accolades.


The young foursome took home the Album of the Year award during this afternoon's Grammy Awards Premiere Ceremony, for their debut full-length From the Fires.

They prevailed in a category that also included ALICE IN CHAINS, FALL OUT BOY, GHOST and WEEZER.

The late CHRIS CORNELL won in the Best Rock Performance category - over GRETA VAN FLEET, ARCTIC MONKEYS, THE FEVER 333 and HALESTORM- for his posthumously released song 'When Bad Does Good.'

CORNELL's children accepted the award, with his son Christopher declaring "I never thought we'd be standing here without my dad. I'm sure he would be proud and honored."
 
HIGH ON FIRE were victorious in the Best Metal Performance category, with their 'Electric Messiah' triumphing over BETWEEN THE BURIED AND ME (for 'Condemned to the Gallows'), DEAFHEAVEN ('Honeycomb'), TRIVIUM ('Betrayer') and UNDEROATH ('On My Teeth').
 
STING and SHAGGY won in the Best Reggae Album category for their recent collaboration '44/876,' overcoming fellow nominees Black Uhuru, Etana, Ziggy Marley and Protoje.
 
GRETA VAN FLEET were also passed over - this time, in favor of ST. VINCENT's 'Masseducation' - in the Best Rock Song category. The other nominated artists in that field were TWENTY ONE PILOTS, BRING ME THE HORIZON, and GHOST.
