Kerrang Awards 2009: Or possibly 1999

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
