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:
I wasn't even aware The Miz liked metal.
Will not attend!
didn't this crappy magazine name that idiot from In This Moment Hottest Chick in 'Metal'? they're about as metal as Phil Collins
