We didn't expect it at all because we're prog metal, but the crowd went nuts and it felt amazing. People started moshing and (since it'a school sponsored event) the principal tried to break it up.

My good friend who was with another band that played "Dude, if you guys didn't win I think people would have rioted."

It felt amazing, when they were like "Give it up for the winners!" I was like

Nice man, congrats. Prog metal should be winning a BotB.

At my last battle of the bands, we smashed two guitars on stage...and won the "audience's choice award," but the teachers didn't appreciate it very much, so they wouldn't give us first prize

So worth it though.

I once won a BotB for being the most original band.

We had saxophone and harmonica solos

All of the Botb winners around here tend to be pop rock/screamo/hardcore unfortunately. Which is a shame because there are awesome metal bands from here too.

We got second place once, and £150 of vouchers to a local music store between 4 of us.

Not bad, considering we were crap.

That's pretty sweet. We have a little festival at my school on Friday that wasn't really a contest but it was still great. There was this really bizzare jam/dance band that played in tribal garb and had a synth player. They won in my books... I was going to be in it, but the drummer quit to play sax in another band and the guitarist went solo.
If you could blow up the world with a flick of a switch,
Would you do it?

If you could make everybody poor just so you could be rich,
Would you do it?

With all your power,
What would you do?

Yeah, we played at the school talent show a while back, we were the opening act. Performing is alot of fun. Sucks that you didn't get to do it.
