Last night (November 14), Måneskin won the award for Best Rock Act at the MTV EMAs in Budapest.

The band made history by becoming the first-ever Italian act to take home an award in a global category, beating fellow nominees Coldplay, Foo Fighters, Imagine Dragons, Kings Of Leon and The Killers.

"First of all we wanted to say thank you to all our fans and the people that have supported us," the quartet said in a statement. "We love you. But we also wanna say that people usually told us we are not gonna make it with our music, well, I guess you were wrong."
