The 2011 Revolver Golden Gods will take place on Wednesday, April 20 at Club Nokia in Los Angeles, California. The Golden God Award will be given to legendary rocker Alice Cooper, while the Ronnie James Dio Lifetime Achievement Award will go to MÖTLEY CRÜE. FOZZY frontman and WWE wrestling champion Chris Jericho will return this year to host the show, the highlights and performances from which will air at a later date on VH1 Classic. In addition to receiving the Golden God Award, Alice Cooper will play with the original ALICE COOPER band at the ceremony. Also slated to perform are DUFF MCKAGAN'S LOADED, DEVILDRIVER, ASKING ALEXANDRIA, VOLBEAT and FOZZY.

The official press conference to announce the details of this year's award show will be held today (Thursday, February 24) at 1:00 p.m. PT at Club Nokia (VIP Lounge, 4th Floor) in Los Angeles. Among those expected to attend are Chris Jericho (FOZZY singer and WWE wrestling champion), Alice Cooper, Mick Mars of MÖTLEY CRÜE, Sebastian Bach, Wendy Dio (wife of Ronnie James Dio) and pro skateboarder Mike Vallely.

My Picks:

Best Guitarist: Janick Gers, Dave Murray, and Adrian Smith (IRON MAIDEN)

Best Drummer: Nicko McBrain (IRON MAIDEN)

Best Vocalist: Glenn Danzig (DANZIG) or Bruce Dickinson (IRON MAIDEN)

Album Of The Year: Theres really no good choices here but I gues i'll go with VOLBEAT, "Beyond Hell/Above Heaven"

Best Live Band: GWAAAAAAAAAARRR!

Most Metal Athlete: Go what a stupid category, I dont even know who any of those people are.

Best New Band: They all suck but I guess i'll go with The Damned Things

Best Comeback: lol @ this category my pick is Accept since they're the only one who makes sense.

* FAITH NO MORE - Didn't they already say they're not doing any more shows?
* MURDERDOLLS - When did they break up?
* SOUNDGARDEN - They haven't even done a full tour yet.
* SYSTEM OF A DOWN - They haven't played one show yet how can you tell if it's a good comeback.

These awards are always so fucking lame, but then again what do I expect from Revolver? The only mainstream metal magazine worth a shit is Decibel and even that is questionable at times.

All of these nominations suck. Has Metal Hammer been going down hill for awhile now or is this something that's just now starting?

EDIT: Just realized this is Revolver. Nevermind, I'm not suprised.

This is even more embarrassing than previous years. I just can't help wondering, do the writers of Revolver actually realize that barely any of the shit they have on this awards show is metal at all?
Embarrassed I used to read this magazine. :eyes:

Ozzy is nominated for every award he is eligible for. Stupid. Gus G should win best guitarist, as he is the most deserving of the award. After that, its the usual candidates for the usual awards.

This has to be a joke. Best new band is truly funny. Asking Alexandria performing is funny as well.

I'm not even a huge fan of Accept, but they're the only band to reunite properly. Soundgarden has played like 3 shows and put out no new music, SOAD hasn't done shit yet, as far as we know they could fall apart before they even play live. Faith No More/APC didn't put out anything new. And Murderdolls...
* ACCEPT
* FAITH NO MORE
* MURDERDOLLS
* A PERFECT CIRCLE
* SOUNDGARDEN
* SYSTEM OF A DOWN


In summary, some more bullshit to lump with Rolling Stone, RnR HoF.

I swear to fucking god if black veil brides or asking alexandria wins best new band, there will be blood :mad: What the hell happened? Last year was pretty cool. AND WHAT THE FUCK HAPPENED TO THE IDEA OF A TRUE
METAL AWARDS SHOW LIKE THEY SAID THIS WOULD BE!!! Most of these bands could be nominated for a grammy. That is all.

Every year people feel the need to get all mad about this. I'll tell you this, next year won't be better.

I will second what jd091 said though. Them or Black Veil Brides would be hilarious.

Well I REALLY love Deftones and I fucking loved Diamond Eyes so I'll be glad with them winning best album. Same with either Bruce or Chino winning best vocalists. Other than that most of the nominations suck.

She IS the hottest chick in metal. :drool:


Back on point, this is so fucking shitty. I didn't realize that Metal is now Mainstream Hard Rock.

Wrong.

Vanja Slajh and Liz Buckingham.

And yeah, there's hardly any metal on this list. I bet Revolver is just trying to pick up all the scene kids. I bet in a couple years (provided the new metalcore scene lasts) they'll be shifting more and more in that direction. Money money money.

Vanja is very hot. Not the hoettest but she's up there

and Liz Buckingham....boiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiing! I didn't realize she was that hot. I think her and Maria might need to get into a catfight. :tongue:

Yeah the first year this was around I was happy about it because it featured actual Metal. Now it's the Mainstream Hard Rock and Autotune Scenecore.

God damn I hate Hot Topic!
