Imagine Dragons aren't just hot, they're radioactive.

The Las Vegas band has earned two Grammy nominations for hit single "Radioactive," which reached No. 3 on Billboard's Hot 100 and No. 1 on Billboard's Alternative and Rock singles charts.

The song is up for the prestigious Record of the Year award, where it will vie for the Grammy with Daft Punk's "Get Lucky," Lorde's "Royals," Bruno Mars' "Knocked Out of Heaven" and Robin Thicke's "Blurred Lines."

"Radioactive" is also a nominee for Best Rock Performance, along with Alabama Shakes' "Always Alright," David Bowie's "The Stars (Are Out Tonight)," Queens of the Stone Age's "My God Is the Sun," Jack White's "I'm Shakin'" and a live version of Led Zeppelin's classic "Kashmir."

This year's Grammy Awards will take place Sunday, January 26 at LA's Staples Center and will be broadcast that night on CBS beginning at 8 p.m. Las Vegas time.
