Cast Your Votes In The Kerrang! Readers’ Poll 2020

Make your voice heard and celebrate your favourite music from 2020 in the Kerrang! Readers’ Poll

Well… 2020 has been quite the ride, hasn’t it? Somehow feeling like both nothing and absolutely everything were happening all at once. But if we can ignore the COVID-shaped elephant in the room for just a moment, the past year has still managed to deliver some outstanding music. 

We’ve had new records from huge names like Deftones, Biffy Clyro, Ozzy Osbourne, Lamb Of God and Pearl Jam, alongside absolute barnstormers from Code Orange, Svalbard, Creeper and Loathe. Not only that, but AC/DC made a welcome return and rapper Machine Gun Kelly turned his inky hands to pop-punk – with stellar results.

But what have you been listening to? What new music have you been plugged into for the past 12 months? We want to know all this, and more, for the annual epic Kerrang! Readers’ Poll. To get involved, simply fill in the form below, and we’ll announce the winners of all 15 categories on December 30
