Indie pop band fun. won best song Grammy on Sunday for "We Are Young," one of six categories in which they were nominated at music's biggest awards show.

The New York group are also shortlisted for the three other top categories of best record, best album and best new artist, as well as best pop vocal album and best pop duo/group performance.

Their beaten rivals in the best song category were Ed Sheeran for "The A Team," Miguel for "Adorn," Carly Rae Jepsen for "Call Me Maybe" and the songwriters of Kelly Clarkson's "Stronger (What Doesn't Kill You)."

The band topped Grammy nominations announced in December.

If they were to win all four of the major categories, it would mark the first such achievement in more than 30 years, according to The New York Times.
