Latin Grammy Award
The Latin Grammy Award for Best Rock Album is an honor presented annually by the Latin Academy of Recording Arts & Sciences at the Latin Grammy Awards, a ceremony that recognizes excellence and promotes a wider awareness of cultural diversity and contributions of Latin recording artists in the United States and internationally. According to the category description guide for the 2012 Latin Grammy Awards, the award is for vocal or instrumental rock albums containing at least 51 percent of newly recorded material. It is awarded to solo artists, duos or groups.
The accolade for Best Rock Album was first presented to the Mexican band CafÃƒÂ© Tacuba at the 1st Latin Grammy Awards in 2000 for their fourth studio album RevÃƒÂ©s/Yo Soy. From 2001 until 2009, the category was not awarded and was instead split between Best Rock Solo Vocal Album and Best Rock Album by a Duo or Group with Vocal. Best Rock Album was reintroduced in 2010 at the 11th Annual Latin Grammy Awards. No act has received a nomination or won this award more than once; however, Mexican singer-songwriter SaÃƒÂºl HernÃƒÂ¡ndez has received two nominations in this category: one as the lead singer of Jaguares and the other as a solo artist.
