If I can remember todays Daily News article, the only "alternative"
nominees are in the "Best Alternative Recording" category:
Bubaiskul "In Sex" (sic)
Hardship Post "Mood Ring"
Eric's Trip "Songs About Chris"
jale "Cinnamon Toast" (sic)
and damned if I can remember #5, maybe Potbelly.
Personally, I don't know how they missed Thrush Hermit's "John Boomer" or
for that matter, ET's "Love Tara" or HP's "Hack". No Sloan, since the
album was released last year, garnering 7 nominations across many
categories and no awards.

Not among the main categories, I'm afraid.
