Green Day walked away with the award for Best Rock Video at last year's MTV Video Music Awards, and today Rolling Stone can exclusively reveal who's in the running for the Moonman at the 2010 ceremony, which goes down September 12th in Los Angeles. 30 Seconds to Mars' nine-minute epic "Kings and Queens" is up against Muse's post-apocalyptic nightmare "Uprising," MGMT's British-culture tribute "Flash Delirium," Paramore's nightmarish "Ignorance" and Florence and the Machine's arty "Dog Days Are Over." British pop star Florence also scored nominations for Video of the Year, Best Art Direction and Best Cinematography.
