      Lol I thought someone made that list up at first....wait....yea, they definately just pulled it out of their ***es. "So guys... The award shows tommorow..and... Shouldn't we pick who wins?" "Yea, pullem outta the hat."

      Kerrang's been a total joke for a while now. Every issue will no doubt have some article on either Fallout Boy or MCR. Enter Shikari are apparently pretty good live, but I do think that Muse should've won it. I mean, Wembley is a little better than selling out the Astoria, no?

      Priest and Machine Head are the only ones on there that are making good music. how much longer till Kerrang gets their head out of their asses

      kerrang has been on a fast decline to pop music for about 4 years now, i memba the good old days of nothing but slayer machine head mudvayne ect.... BRING BACK THE METAL KERRANG FOR THE LOVE OF ALL THAT IS GOOD MUSIC

      lostprophets? wow... I have to admit that that is really surprising.

      Lol, just shows you how low Kerrang has sunk. It's supposed to be for alternative music, what the hell are Lost Prophets or MCR alternative to? They're goddamn pop bands!

      Maybe they just have a different idea of good than you?I agree with the Lostprophets winning,also with 30stm.But just because you don't like it,doesn't mean other people don't.

      Dont get me wrong, i like the lost prophets infact i was listening to start something today in my car whilst i was getting a few things in town, bt i wouldnt exactly call them the best british band

      ****ing lostprophet??? i mean come on liberation transmission sucked so much... how can they get band of the year unless kerrang heard their new album and was like holy shit hand them that (which i highly doubt). i mean the first 2 cds were fine, but liberation transmission just was meaningless in so many ways

      Makes me realise why I stopped buying that magazine a good few years ago. I'm pretty sure that 99% of the winners this year have won these awards before. The only justifiable award there is Juads Priest winning the hall of fame thing.

      NIN is finally appreciated thank god, 30stm is a decent band but not best single. MCR and Fall out boy are about as hilarious.

      glad to see machine head on there... but wtf how did madina lake win their like the gayest band ever

      metal hammer and rocksound aren't that much better man. even terrorizer used to be much better
      ticklemeemo
      I hate Nine Inch Nails. Their songs are so boring and the lyrics sound like what some 12-year old goth kid would write. Judas Priest deserves it, but all those other bands suck. (never heard Machine Head play so I don't know about them)
      C&C Magik
      Bullet is pretty good, i was pulling for them I think MCRs new stuff isn't too bad, so yeah... flame me if you want. Coheed and Cambria are still better than anyone.
      C&C Magik
      ^Just cuz i said I like MCRs new stuff doesn't mean that I thought they should have won best Int. band. there are tons better out there, i just don't think that MCR isn't half bad.

      I stopped reading after seeing MCR win. I always wonder how people are able to take them seriously, admire them and give them awards. They are a project, not a band.

      It's a sad day, but I guess I can take consolation in the fact that Linkin Park didn't get anything. Muse should've won best live band at least.
      Thom Yorke
      Funeral For A Friend should have got something. Muse are easily the world's best live band. Enter Shikari used to go to my school and they're about as talented as fish paste. Up the Lostprophets. Awesome at Reading yesterday.

      heh, for a "metal" magizine it seems fairly obsessed with nothing that is metal, i hvent read it since 2003 when shit like mcr and fob started appearing on the front cover, my gf's 8 year sister reads it, lmao

      For those of you that don't like kerrang, leave them be, becasue we have metal hammer and rocksound =D

      Pretty popular for just a project. And hey, they can out with ideas that your air-filled head could even imagine in its dizzy daydreams dear.

Sorry, but I'm certain there are many guitarists on a website called Ultimate-guitar.com, who can wipe the LostProphets guitarist off of the face of the earth in 10 seconds flat! I am definetly not jealous of Lost Prophets. Try listening to this band - DREAM THEATER. You'll be a different person.
      you, my friend, are a complete *****. I think omega supreme was trying to point out that lostprophets write awesome music, not that their guitarist is the best in the world. Dream Theatre can't touch lostprophets for catchy songs. end of.

      Lostprophets own, there music are catchy n heavy... well most of them. Best band goin around and very underated!!!!!
      PunkFunk24/7
      jokes people think awards werent deserved. well. u guys complaining.complain to kerrang.if u care SO much why dont you hop and your mopeds and go complain to kerrang. retards
      BlackMagic17
      I don't see how they can justify giving Lostprophets best British band of the year when they haven't even released an album this year. Does anyone else find that odd?
