LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Matt Berninger had some good-natured fighting words for his competitors in the alternative album category at the Grammys.
"We will rub it in their faces if we win!" joked Berninger, frontman for the indie rock band The National, a few hours before the awards show.
The National was nominated for its album "Trouble Will Find Me" against albums by Neko Case, Nine Inch Nails, Tame Impala and Vampire Weekend.
