2011 Revolver Golden Gods Nominees Announced

Because we all need a little comedy now and again.

In particular, these are the Album of the Year nominees brought to us by the douchebags that brought us Affliction t-shirts:

Avenged Sevenfold, Nightmare
Black Label Society, Order of the Black
Deftones, Diamond Eyes
Ozzy Osbourne, Scream
Stone Sour, Audio Secrecy
Volbeat, Beyond Hell/Above Heaven

Honestly, I have not heard a single one of those albums. I am surprised Iron Maiden is not listed.

Here's Best New Band:

Best New Band:

Asking Alexandria
Black Veil Brides
The Damned Things
The Pretty Reckless
Times of Grace
We Are the Fallen

And my head exploded.

  1. I've heard 4 of those albums, and none of them is even close to being worthy of "album of the year" consideration. In fact, one of them (Audio Secrecy) finally convinced me to stop following the band that released it. Beyond Hell / Above Heaven is the best of that particular bunch.

    And on the best new band front . . . um, they're not really all new bands. It's a cop-out to nominate a "same band with a different name" or a supergroup.
