Phoenix - 1901 / Lisztomania
It's ironic that French band Phoenix is in the running to nab a Grammy for best new alternative rock band, considering the group has been releasing albums for nine years. Nobody had heard of Phoenix until their appearance on "Saturday Night Live," which in turn prompted an appearance on the late night talk show circuit. "Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix" went on to become a hot seller, placing on Top 100 charts in more than twelve countries around the globe. "1901" has since been featured in a car commercial, while "Lisztomania" appeared in the trailer for the film adaptation of the book "Where the Wild Things Are."
