The American Music Awards have released this years nominees.  And the category for “Favorite Rock Song” has bands like Foo Fighters, Imagine Dragons, & more as nominees. Seeing these band names in that category isn’t strange at all. What is strange is seeing Kate Bush on that list for her song “Running Up That Hill”, which was released thirty-seven years ago!

Her song was used in an episode of “Stranger Things” on Netflix, and cause a HUGE resurgence for the song! Radio stations started playing it again, including formats that would normally not play it. It was all over social media platforms like Instagram and TikTok!

The sixty-four year old, Kate Bush also broke Guinness Book of World Records with the song as the most streamed song in a month!  Will she finally take home the AMA for her song?

The American Music Awards will air on November 20th at 5pm PST!
