The trip-hop group Massive Attack have been nominated for five Brit Awards --

the U.K. equivalent of the Grammys -- including Best British Group, Best Album and Best

Single ("Teardrop"). Pop star Robbie Williams led the list of nominees

announced Monday in London, with six in all. Other multiple nominees include the

eclectic blues-rock band Gomez (three nods including Best British Group) and

electronica populist Fatboy Slim (three, including Best Single for "The

Rockafella Skank"). The awards will be presented Feb. 16 in London.
