The 2005 Kerrang! Awards winners have been announced at The Brewery in London on Thursday August 25. Here are the winners, as voted by the readers:

Classic Songwriter Award: Nine Inch Nails' Trent Reznor
Best British Newcomer: Bullet For My Valentine
Best International Newcomer: Trivium
Best Single: Foo Fighters for "Best of You"
Best Video: My Chemical Romance for "Helena"
Best Album: My Chemical Romance for "Three Cheers for Sweet Revenge"
Best Live Band: Green Day
Best British Band: Funeral for a Friend
Best Band On The Planet: Green Day
Lifetime Achievement: Killing Joke
Icon Award: Marilyn Manson

Iron Maiden have been inducted into the Kerrang! Hall of Fame. Also, Kerrang! thought that a few people should be given recognition for other reasons so they awarded Iron Maiden frontman, Bruce Dickinson, with the Homer Simpson "Conducting Oneself with Quiet Dignity" Award for not using his acceptance speech as a cheap shot against the Osbournes, but merely thanking his band and fans.

Yeah, anyway....congrats to Trivium for best Int. newcomer. I think they are one of the best bands to come out in a while and deserve some recognition. But on the other hand.....all the other bands on here suck.

I'm going to have to respectfully disagree with you 'broken face' on the "only band worth rekonin" in the award list above. The Lifetime Achievement Award, in my opinion, has been properly awarded to Killing Joke. I love Killing Joke. They've been around for a long time and I think they've been overlooked for years on what they've contributed. Of course Metallica covering "The Wait" didn't hurt their popularity. Of course I'm pretty sure if it were not for Metallica, some of us would have never known of bands such as Killing Joke, Diamond Head, and even so far as Motorhead and The Misfits. Three cheers for Killing Joke! Oh!...and umm...Metallica to!

Oh, and BTW, I know someone may comment on how much Metallica sucks now...or something to that nature. Be assured I'm old-school as far as my comments on Metallica goes. I don't care for anything past Justice.

WTF happened to Kerrang!?!?!?


Trivium, NIN and Killingjoke are the only deserving bands up there.........If Manson were still able to move the Earth as he did in the mid and late 90's I might agree with that nod bet nah he churned out some real garbage with that last record......

Wow, Funeral For A Friend deserved to win Best british band, they rock so much, and they are my favourite band ever!

Shame about Fightstar not winning best british new comer, they are my second favourite band.
But I adore Bullet For My Valentine so I'm happy they won!

Wo, go Kerrang!

And go Marylyn Manson for winning Kerrang's Idol award!

to post 19

sorry, but i would disagree with you. i think its rediculous how much credit and praise dimebags getting just because he died. im not saying i dont like him, but giving him that award would have been out of total sympathy, IMO
