The Latin Grammy Award for Best Alternative Song is an honor presented annually at the Latin Grammy Awards, a ceremony that recognizes excellence and creates a wider awareness of cultural diversity and contributions of Latin recording artists in the United States and internationally.[1] The award is reserved to the songwriters of a new song containing at least 51% of the lyrics in Spanish. Instrumental recordings or cover songs are not eligible.[2]

The award has been presented to songwriters originating from France, Mexico, Colombia and Puerto Rico. It was first earned by French musician Manu Chao for the song "Me Llaman Calle" in 2007.[3] The band members of Café Tacvba and Calle 13 are the only songwriters to have received this award more than once.
