Vampire Weekend, Daft Punk, Foals and Biffy Clyro will battle against the Thin White Duke for Best Album, while Daft Punk’s hit single “Get Lucky” will face off against Arctic Monkeys’ “Do I Wanna Know?” for Best Track. "Get Lucky" is also in the running for Best Video against Vampire Weekend’s “Diane Young” and Beady Eye 's "Shine a Light."
In addition, Arctic Monkeys and Foals will compete against each other in two other categories: Best Live Act and Best Act in the World Today. Other bands nominated for Best Live Act include Mumford & Sons , Muse and The Stone Roses , while bands nominated for Best Act in the World Today also include Vampire Weekend, Biffy Clyro and David Bowie.
The awards will be handed out October 21 at a ceremony in London, a ceremony at which it's customary for all the attendees to get rip-roaring drunk and say embarrassing things.
