Kerrang! fails at... everything

Posted by EW on 04/08/09

Ok, really that isn't actually the correct headline as Kerrang! ceased to become a reputable magazine about 15 years ago but the news of the winners at the 2009 Kerrang! Awards in London yesterday make for hilarious reading. See below:

Best British Newcomer: In Case Of Fire

Best International Newcomer: The Gaslight Anthem

Best Single: The Prodigy - "Omen"

Best Video: Mastodon - "Oblivion"

Classic Songwriter: Linkin Park

Spirit Of Independence: The Wildhearts

Icon: Alice In Chains

Best Album: Metallica - "Death Magnetic"

Best Live Band: Slipknot

Inspiration: Machine Head

Hall Of Fame: Limp Bizkit

Best British Band: Bullet For My Valentine

Best International Band: Slipknot

So firstly, the '2009' awards at the beginning of the eighth month - whats that about? And do the 'panel' just check if Slipknot and Metallica have done anything at all that year and award all revelant categories to them? Limp Bizkit? Bullet For My Valentine? Get me the sick bag please. Discuss.
