You know why they have a newcomer prizes at the Kerrang awards? It's so you can double-check you're not, actually, looking at a list of winners from a decade ago.
I'm not sure if I can quite take seriously any prize-giving where Linkin Park are hailed as classic songwriters; much less one where there is a Hall Of Fame which retains a wing to praise Limp Bizkit.
The winners in full:
BEST BRITISH NEWCOMER: In Case Of Fire
BEST INTERNATIONAL NEWCOMER: The Gaslight Anthem
BEST SINGLE: The Prodigy - Omen
BEST VIDEO: Mastodon - Oblivion
CLASSIC SONGWRITER: Linkin Park
SPIRIT OF INDEPENDENCE: The Wildhearts
ICON: Alice In Chains
BEST ALBUM: Metallica - Death Magnetic
BEST LIVE BAND: Slipknot
INSPIRATION: Machine Head
HALL OF FAME: Limp Bizkit
BEST BRITISH BAND: Bullet For My Valentine
BEST INTERNATIONAL BAND: Slipknot
