Hard rock and metal do not have the presence they once had at the MTV Video Music Awards, but there are still a few rock acts getting recognition for their work. Linkin Park, The Black Keys and Jack White are among those receiving MTV VMA nods for the upcoming ceremony, which will take place Aug. 24 at 9PM ET/PT on MTV.

The biggest representation for rock came in the Best Rock Video category, where Linkin Park’s ‘Until It’s Gone’ received a nod alongside The Black Keys’ ‘Fever,’ Imagine Dragons‘ ‘Demons,’ Arctic Monkeys‘ ‘Do I Wanna Know?’ and Lorde‘s ‘Royals.’

Elsewhere, Thirty Seconds to Mars‘ ‘City of Angels’ video will be competing with clips from Beyonce, Arcade Fire, Gesaffelstein and Lana Del Rey for Best Cinematography. Jack White’s ‘Lazaretto’ video also earned a nod for Best Visual Effects, competing against clips from DJ Snake & Lil Jon, OK Go, Disclosure and Eminem.

Pop superstar Beyonce leads all of the MTV VMA nominees with eight nominations. See all of the nominees and vote for your favorites at
