Kerrang Awards - Best Band On The Planet: Green Day

Added by Bob on 26th August 2005

The Kerrang awards were drawn a short while ago and the list of winners and nominations are below...

First up, what did you think of the winners, did they deserve what they got? (comment below or post a new topic in the forum).

Now... most of the bands kerrang feature are the 'crap' bands that aren't manufactured. So, the choice of good bands is limited... (to Green Day in most cases below).

Luckily, Green Day are one of those good bands and won some well deserved awards...

The Winners:-

ICON AWARD

The Kerrang! Icon Award has only been presented once before. It's for people who define a style, a sound, a genre. It's for people who are so much part of the fabric of what Kerrang!'s about that they're known by just one name. This is the stuff of legends and this award recognises just that.

WINNER - MARILYN MANSON

SERVICES TO METAL

The Services To Metal award celebrates a contribution over a sustained period. It recognises an outfit who've stayed true to their beliefs and who've stood outside of the norm at times. An outfit who've taken risks, and a team of people who've taken a different perspective.

WINNER - ROADRUNNER RECORDS
