U2 Grammys

U2's newest album No Line on the Horizon was released today so I thought by marking the occasion I would do another U2 post.

This post will be a listing of all of the Grammy Awards they have won over the years.

1988 - Album of the Year (The Joshua Tree)
1988 - Best Rock Duo or Group with Vocal
1989 - Best Rock Duo or Group with Vocal
1989 - Best Performance Music Video (Where the Streets Have No Name)
1993 - Best Rock Duo or Group with Vocal
1994 - Best Alternative Music Album (Zooropa)
1995 - Best Long Form Music Video (Zoo TV: Live from Sydney)
2001 - Best Rock Duo or Group with Vocal
2001 - Song of the Year (Beautiful Day)
2001 - Record of the Year (Beautiful Day)
2002 - Best Rock Album (All That You Can't Leave Behind)
2002 - Best Rock Duo or Group with Vocal
2002 - Best Pop duo or Group with Vocal
2002 - Record of the Year (Walk On)
2005 - Best Short Form Music Video (Vertigo)
2005 - Best Rock Duo or Group with Vocal
2006 - Album of the Year (How to Dismantle an Atomic Bomb)
2006 - Song of the Year (Sometimes You Can't Make It On Your Own)
2006 - Best Rock Duo or Group with Vocal
2006 - Best Rock Song (City of Blinding Lights)
2006 - Best Rock Album (How to Dismantle an Atomic Bomb)

Having compiled this list I was wondering what some of these categories actually meant. And here is what I found out.

Album of the Year is an award given for an entire album.

Record of the Year is awarded for a single or one track on an album.

Song of the Year is also for a single track on an album but is different from the Record of the Year in that the Record of the Year is presented to the artist of the song while Song of the Year is presented to the composer of the song.

The rest were fairly self-explanatory to me.

So anyway, there they are. All of the Grammys that have been awarded to U2.
