There's one time of the year that every rockstar dreads - the morning after this very magazine's annual awards ceremony. Our hangovers have just about cleared from last year's Kerrang! Awards Fuelled By Relentless Energy Drink and we're getting ready to do it all over again on June 7 at a top secret London location!
You can bank on at least three things at the awards: loads of megastars, tonnes of decadent behaviour and at least one member of a new band to have been sick before the ceremony has even started. It's always that good.
"I've got the guestlist for the 2012 awards locked in my desk drawer," says Kerrang! Editor James McMahon. "I can't tell you who's on it yet - but I can say that it's a line-up to rival all those times you read Kerrang! while eating cheese before bed..."
Starting this week, we're giving you the opportunity to show some love to the people who make your neck and ears hurt in the best way possible. You can nominate your favourite bands - in addition to a slew of brand new awards - in 18 categories.
