2011 Kerrang! Awards Nominees Announced!

On June 9th, some of our favorite bands will be making their way across the pond to a top secret location where the Kerrang! Awards will be the held. The award ceremony, held by the british rock music magazine, is putting the hottest bands head to head. My Chemical Romance takes the lead with 5 nominations but has some tough competition, like 30 Seconds to Mars and Panic! at the Disco. (We put Panic! against 30STM, pick your fav here!)

“The competition is really hotting up!” says Kerrang!’s Deputy Editor Daniel J. Lane. “It’s been an amazing year for our music and it’s really exciting to see such a diverse range of bands in the running for this year’s K! Awards.”
