You Me At Six aren't the worst band ever (their music is only mildly insulting), but calling them the best British band of 2012 is a joke. Tesseract for instance have a thousand times more talent.

"But that's beside the point, Kerrang really failed with this year's awards."

They never usually succeed any year to be honest. But in all fairness they've got to keep the target audience in mind when they chose the nominees

"I have over 900 hours on Skyrim (I got it on opening day, make mods for it and play it constantly), it's been my favorite game for a while."

Wow. Of course I can't talk, I had 153 days played on one character on WoW through just Vanilla and BC. So I digress.

But Skyrim gets boring as shit.

BEST VIDEO GAME

Skyrim

Only correct one on this entire list[2]

Russell Howard is ok but he steals a lot of internet memes and it gets kinda annoying. He's like Russell Kane-lite (love that guy)

BEST INTERNATIONAL BAND

My Chemical Romance

BEST BRITISH BAND

You Me At Six

Swear this has been the case every year for the past decade or something

And seriously why do people keep bashing Justin Bieber, do they still find that funny or necessary? Fucking hell I only hear his name when people are bashing him 90% of the time, it makes it more annoying if anything.

I just looked up why Hayley Williams won that award.
Someone hacked her and posted up a picture of her boobs, she posted on her Twitter saying it was a hack.
Wow Kerrang, generally I don't mind seeing nice tits (and believe me, they were nice), but that was really shitty of the magazine to do, she didn't post them up herself.

was pretty obviously her, she must have clicked a wrong button or something cos it went down pretty much immediately
And they probably voted for her cos she tweets constantly

the kerrang awards never cease to bore me.

the only nominees for best festival will be download, sonisphere or reading, so winning that is nothing special

slash has been a rock icon for decades, we all fucking know that

the rest of the winners have been nominated every year for the last decade or so and only seem to include the semi-big or world famous names. no consideration would have been given to anyone remotely new or interesting.
