What do Bruce Springsteen, Hoobastank, and U2 have in common? They are all among the nominees and winners of the Grammy Award for Best Rock Album in the 2000s. As you can tell, it's a wide-ranging category. Some of the best rock albums of the 2000s champion a classic rock 'n' roll feel, with wailing guitars and thumping bass lines to match. But many of these best 2000s album nominees incorporate pop stylings and punk swagger into their tracks. When it comes to deciding the very best Grammy-nominated rock album of the decade, there's no one right answer.

What LPs will you find on this list of Grammy-nominated 2000s albums? The Foo Fighters were nominated for Grammys several times during this span. They took home the trophy in 2001 for There Is Nothing Left to Lose, in 2004 for One by One, and in 2008 for Echoes, Silence, Patience & Grace. The Red Hot Chili Peppers also earned multiple Grammy nominations in the decade.

One of the most notable Grammy-nominated rock albums of the 2000s – or any era – has to be Bruce Springsteen's tribute to America's resilience, The Rising. Other good releases on this roundup of rock releases include Broken Boy Soldiers by The Raconteurs and Rage Against the Machine's The Battle of Los Angeles.
