I'm probably going to get beaten up over this, oh well, who cares? lol

First of all, rammstein shouldn't be on there at all, they're more Industrial than metal, and even if they were, they wouldn't qualify anyway. No offense to Rammstein fans, but I just don't like them, but I give respect to people who do like them. They're not too bad I guess, just no my style.

Another thing, people are now confusing Emo with Metal. Just because Emo bands now copy the "Distorted Guitars" trick that most REAL metal bands use, doesn't mean your metal. They might qualify as metal if they didn't scream, cry, and whinge. Also, if they're lyrics were poetic, then they could pass-off as doom metal, like Opeth. Another thing is that the drummers in Emo bands don't really use double kickers, or do jazz type drumming, and for all you Nu Metal kids out there, you've all missed the meaning and definition of metal.

Metal is a sub-genre of rock. It is basically made up of elements of fast music, with hard rock, distorted guitars, some form of Jazz influence (drumming, bass, whatever...Remember that Jazz, funnily enough, was also a influence on the part of rock with created metal, that may sound bad, but its actually true). Thats also why SOAD and Slipknot can't be anywhere on this award magazine. Slipknot slab together over-produced guitar work with crappy drumming and vocals, thats why its NU METAL, and not REAL METAL. They are also mainstream and very corporal sellout-ish. Another reason why they can't be metal. SOAD also can't be on this because, just like slipknot, they are corporal sellouts, and they are also a disgrace to heavy metal.

They aren't even able to be political, and wtf has politics got to do with metal anyway? Heavy Metal was never about politics, so SOAD shouldn't be in here full-stop.

Cradle of Filth shouldnt be in here either, they would win the award for biggest black-metal corporal sellouts. Considering that most real black metal bands are underground, and most usually stick to their sound, because its actually more closer to real music, than sellout music.

Nightwish aren't too bad I guess, I wouldn't say they're the best, but they're good enough for a metal band. HIM shouldn't be considered Metal at all, sorry but Love Metal is stupid. If Nu Metal isn't soft enough, Love Metal is even softer. Besides, Love Metal is probably the bridge between metal and Emo, and probably the reason why Green Day is on here, which they obviously shouldnt (Same applies to GC and MCR).

Good Charlotte and Green Day are punk-posers. They should be in a punk music awards magazine, but because bands like The Clash, Sex Pistols, Dead Kennedy's, Ramones are all sold out and gone, and leaving only Gang of Four (The only last remaining decent punk band left) there wouldn't be realistically much competition, considering that punk is just about dead, and all other punk bands are imitations/sellouts/flogging the dead punk horse.

I will say that Slayer or Metallica can't go on here either, because of their latest works are awful and have strayed too far away from the genre of music they play (Thrash and Speed Metal). Black Sabbath would be the same deal because Ozzy can't put out the same classics he once used to. Megadeth and Iron Maiden could qualify, and so could a few others like Opeth for their musical innovation, creativity, and originality, Motorhead and Judas Priest could also qualify for releasing solid albums every year of their career, and never selling out/sounding crap.

I'm not saying that my nominees should be the only ones, i'm only listing some of my favourites and some awesome metal bands that have proved to be REAL metal that cold qualify. Basically any real metal band could qualify as long as it's still around, and it still releases solid albums.

You can all choose who you'd like to nominate, but there should have been a fair lines drawn on what could be nominated. So far, only Nightwish and Trivium would qualify in that list, but there are much better bands around now that are doing much better.

This is possibly the worst thing that could happen to my fellow heavy metal fans and our bands. GREEN DAY?! R u f***ing kidding me?! That "American Idiot" song sounded like a bunch of gay fa**ots made it. Oh, wait. Green Day is a bunch of f***ing gay fa**ots! System of A Down & Slipknot both deserve to be in the Kerrang! Awards. But, wait. Isn't Kerrang! a metal magazine? So why the f*** r all the other bands not there? Like Lamb of God, In Flames, Tool, Killswitch, Iron Maiden, The Misfists, Black Sabbath, Megadeth, or what about METALLICA?!!!!! Maybe it's just me, but I bet the owner/ founder of Kerrang! probably turned gay, retarded, or just doesn't f***ing care about METALLICA & the rest. Green Day will DIE. Why can't everything be like the 80's again?! It was a time when every heavy metal band were like gods to us!!! U know what, Green Day?! U gaylords can take those awards, and shove them up ur goddamn asses!!! And I'll tell who the true winners are:

Best Britsh Newcomer:
Cradle of Filth

Best International Newcomer:
no one!

Best Single:
System of A Down: B.Y.O.B.( the greatest song ever)

Best Video:
System of A Down: B.Y.O.B.(still the best)

Best Album:
S.O.A.D.: Mezmerize/Hypnotize (Hypnotize will be in stores in November.)

Best Live Band:
S.O.A.D. (and u know it's the f***ing truth!)

Best British Band:
Iron Maiden

Best Band on The Planet:
(tie) METALLICA & SYSTEM OF A DOWN!!!!!

There u have it, our real winners. By the way, I've got one thing left to say:
Green Day
1997-2005

The full nominations are:

1. Best British Newcomer
Bullet For My Valentine

Towers Of London
Nine Black Alps
THE GA* GA*S

No idea who any of them are. They are all probably blow a$$ anyway.

2. Best International Newcomer
Trivium
Eighteen Visions
Emanuel
Lordi
Still Remains

I'll say Trivium, because they're the only one I heard of on that list.

3. Best Single
Green Day 'American Idiot'
System Of A Down 'Bring Your Own Bomb"
My Chemical Romance 'I'm Not Okay (I Promise)...'
Foo Fighters 'Best of You'
Nightwish 'Nemo'

Nightwish 'Nemo'. Nightwish definitely goes above the bands on this list, but I will give credit to the others as well, because they are decent songs too.

4. Best Video
My Chemical Romance 'Helena'
Green Day 'Holiday'
System of A Down 'Bring Your Own Bomb'
Good Charlotte 'Chronicles of Life and Death'
Weezer 'Beverly Hills'

System of a Down. I'd hang myself before I listened to Good Charolette or Weezer. And, well, I just think they're better than Green Day, but I'll give them credit as a band.

5. Best Album
Green Day 'American Idiot'
System Of A Down 'Mezmerize'
My Chemical Romance 'Three Cheers For Sweet Revenge'
Foo Fighters 'In Your Honor'
Trivium 'Ascendancy'

System of a Down, Mezmerize. These are all good, but Mezmerize is just better. ^_^

6. Best Live Band
Rammstein
Green Day
System Of A Down
Slipknot
Avenged Sevenfold

Don't get me wrong, I love a live Slipknot show. But, nothing on this list can beat a Rammstein concert. Just too awesome.

7. Best British Band
Feeder
Stereophonics
Funeral For A Friend
Placebo
Cradle Of Filth

Why isn't Iron Maiden here? From this list, it'd have to be Cradle of Filth.

8. Best Band On The Planet
Green Day
My Chemical Romance
System Of A Down
HIM
Foo Fighters

Damn, these people must've been blind when voting. Black Sabbath should be on here. But, I'll give my vote to HIM, since they're definitely the best band on there.


Somebody should really tell these people what bands to put on votes. Half of these were like picking my own torture, with only one selection being release.
