Once again I must apologize on of the UK. Kerrang is a sh** magazine and always has been. With the exception of Slayer and Angus Young I pretty much want to be sick. I like The Prodigy I must say but I've never seen what the hell they gotta do with rock music nowadays since they hardly use guitar parts anymore.

it's voted for by kerrang readers so the polls represent the views of them not the magazine.

Prodigy!..I forgot all about them....

Wow...I'm old.

They were the biggest thing ever when I was 16, I guess it's cool that they still exist but nohing they did before or after Fat of the Land recieved any kind of acclaim or sales.

Is it me or has Kerrang! sort of lost the right to have that exclamation point?...

All they cover is safe poppy sh**, neo-alterna-garbage and the random metal and classic rock/metal act for some kind of cred that doesn't exist.

Actually only a few were voted by Kerrang readers if I remember correctly, HOWEVER, the core buyers list consists of little emo poser tossers that wouldn't know metal, punk, hardcore or anything if it broke into their house and raped their mum.
