Foo Fighters and Twenty One Pilots are among the nominees for Group of the Year at this year’s MTV Video Music Awards.

The prize is among the just-announced VMA “social categories,” which will be chosen through MTV’s social media channels. Bracket-style voting is set to begin this Saturday, September 4, via MTV’s Instagram Story.

Other nominees include BTS, Jonas Brothers, Maroon 5, Silk Sonic, BLACKPINK and CNCO.

Foo Fighters are already up for three other VMAs this year: Best Rock, Best Choreography and Best Cinematography, all for the “Shame Shame” video. They’ll also be honored with the Global Icon Award.

Twenty One Pilots, meanwhile, will compete in the Best Alternative category with “Shy Away.”

Both Foo Fighters and Twenty One Pilots are also performing during the VMA ceremony, which premieres September 12.
