      You guys... Psh. Whatever =) I love Lostprophets. Even if they look a little emo these days... Their music is great. I LOVED The Fake Sound OF Progress, really liked Start Something, and liked Liberation Transmission. They deserve the award, in my opinion. =)

      kerrang is great, and obviously we're not all gonna agree on every award. lostprophets are clearly the best british band- i mean who else is there- ffaf, iron maiden, b4mv or maybe muse, but i cant really see 40 year olds voting for maiden and b4mv haven't done n e thing this year and yer lp haven't had a nu album but they still have had some singles and live touring- b4mv haven't. but why are they now n e way we'rwe barely 1/2 way thru the year

      Lol Lost Prophets barely did anything this year- they only released a poor album last summer. Although other then the boring indie stuff there hasn't been many British bands making their mark. Iron Maiden should have won it- new album, best performance at Download. Then again it's Kerrang so who cares.

      Best British band right now = King Crimson. Porcupine Tree is a close second. I'm sure none of the dipshits at kerrang have ever heard of those bands, though.

      that completely sums it up right there i woulda thought funeral would win over lost prophets, even though i haven't heard much off of hours, and nothing from tales dont tell themselves, casually dressed and deep in conversation was amazing. imo anyway

      I dont know if you all realised this... but it was kerrang readers who voted for the winners. So kerrangs readers obviously like those bands. Its just good business for them to cover them more than whatever you guys like

      well if they still sell out arenas an shit, even with a meaningless album, thats pretty good i think. Also i've got to be honest most of the bands up there are pants other than enter shikari, machine head and posibly fall out boy if im with my girlfreind
      whatsername101
      WHAT?! If I recall correctly... I voted for Muse... This is god awful news to hear... But I guess LP are popular...Oh well meh

      i dislike lost prophets because they said bad things about ABBA ABBA are 10 times better than they will ever be

      oh and priest, NIN, machine head, enter shikari and the prophets are good. Gallows are ok. MCR has 1 good song (Dead!). The rest sucks.

      You, my friend, are the only respectable person here! Well, and anyone else who thinks all of those awards are an utter joke (Except for Machine Head, Judas Priest - My God they actually got something right!)

      HAHA thats funny!!! 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.

      lostprophets...were good... now they're bullshit, disagree 100%. what happened to you guys?

      Lol @ "Buy Metal Hammer". Real metallers buy Terrorizer and Zero Tolerance. Anyway, Checked.

      What about Iron Maiden? They've not exactly been inactive this last year - new album, 2 tours incl headlining download festival for the 4th time. could easily have swept the board imo. Also they were one of the bands that helped make Kerrang! way back when and they're ignored most of the time now. It's become a bit of girly mag now with MCR and fall out boy and other shite like them
      IndieMetalhead
      Why didn't Muse win again? /fanboy To be fair, they were nominated for so many for a reason. The gallows, best newcomer? **** that.

      why the hell do I wanna hear about gay bands like 30 stm and fall out boy getting awards? Enter Shikari and the LP's desrve those awards, but FOB, or MCR, anyone with half the talent of a new born baby could make music just as good (if not better)
      cITIzens_EraZed
      oh come on this is bullshit. Kerrang are a bunch of fcukwit pussies. How bout putting muse with best live band and best british band. it was the same at the Brit awards bloody darkness and franz ferdinand get real

      That picture of the singer kinda looks like Heather Lockleer, but with with dark hair and scruff.

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?
      true, but enter shikari sold out the Astoria before their debut album was released. I believe they are the first or second band ever to do so. not bad for a few demos... Also I like Enter Shikari live, but omg Muse is fan-****ing-tastic live.

      the day I saw Eminem and Avril Lavigne and Panic At The Disco on Kerrang TV, is the day I lost faith in Kerrang. METAL HAMMER FTW!
      demonico
      BFMV Should definately be on there, it's not as if they are the kind of metal that Kerreng doesn't touch, they are even favourites with them!!!
      Yeah definitely! BFMV's album was ace, and kerrang played the tears don't fall single for a while (unfortunately the clean version though lol) They should have won the award, so much better than lost prophets!!

      + can dragonforce be considered a 'british' metal band? If so... why the f**k are they not on!!! If anyone deserves the award its them

      I saw some highlights last night, was painful having to watch Scott Ian from Anthrax announcing Enter Shikari for an award... I think he then announced Machine Head's award, which kind of made up for it but still, poor guy!
