Today's featured list

This star symbolizes the featured content on Wikipedia.

Today's featured list is a section included on the Main Page on Mondays and on Fridays, in which an introduction to one of Wikipedia's featured lists is displayed. The current month's queue can be found here. The lists appearing on the Main Page are scheduled by the featured list director, currently Giants2008.

To be eligible to appear on the Main Page, a list must already be featured. For more information on the featured list promotion process, please see the featured list candidates, as well as the featured list criteria. In addition, a blurb is drafted, introducing the subject of the list. Blurbs are roughly 1,000 characters in length, with no reference tags, alternate names or extraneous boldface type, although a link to the specified featured list should be emboldened; a relevant picture is also usually included with the blurb. The previous three lists that were featured on the Main Page appear along the bottom, in reverse chronological order. You can submit a list to be scheduled at the submissions page.

At the moment, lists are scheduled by the featured list director or by the featured list delegates, although we will eventually be devising a community-based system for selecting each day's list. We encourage editors to submit and to review as many blurbs as possible. If you notice a problem with an upcoming featured list to appear on the Main Page, please leave a message at the Main Page errors page or here.

Further suggestions on how you can participate can be found here.

Foo Fighters in 2017
Foo Fighters

The Grammy Award for Best Rock Album is an award presented at the Grammy Awards to recording artists for quality rock music albums. The Grammy Awards are presented at a ceremony annually by The Recording Academy of the United States to "honor artistic achievement, technical proficiency and overall excellence in the recording industry, without regard to album sales or chart position". The Best Rock Album honor was first presented to The Rolling Stones at the 37th Annual Grammy Awards (1995) for the album Voodoo Lounge. The band Foo Fighters (pictured) holds the records for the most wins, with four. Sheryl Crow, Green Day, Muse and U2 have each received the award twice. Neil Young holds the record for the most nominations without a win, with seven. The band Greta Van Fleet most recently won the award for their album From the Fires at the 2019 ceremony.
