But "Heathens" is just one of several mega hits from Twenty One Pilots that dominated both the rock and pop charts in 2016. So, who's going to win Best Rock Performance? 🎸

It could go either way...

#TeamHeathens

Twenty One Pilots ruled Billboard's rock charts in 2016. "Heathens" peaked at #2 on the Billboard Hot 100. And it's ranked at #21 on Billboard's year-end list. While "Heathens" perfectly mixes rap and rock, the rock duo's popularity might be enough to win them the award.
