A weak-sauce awards show named after a U.K. awards show by a better publication took place last night at Club Nokia in Los Angeles, and various rock and metal acts were honored over the course of the evening.
Guns N’ Roses’ Axl Rose and Joan Jett were given lifetime contribution awards. Slayer and Suicide Silence performed. People got drunk. And Revolver sold magazine ads.
Rose took home this year’s Ronnie James Dio Lifetime Achievement Award, while Joan became the first female recipient of the Golden God Award.
Here’s the list of this year’s winners. If you could call them that.
Obviously, I disagree with most of these winners.
