The acts we mentioned above were singled out for the night’s biggest honors. Manson received the Lifetime Achievement Award at the event, while Judas Priest snagged the Kerrang! Inspiration Award. BabyMetal was given the Spirit of Independence honor and Alice Cooper was feted as a Kerrang! Legend.
Also taking home awards at yesterday’s ceremony were Black Veil Brides, who were dubbed the Best Live Band, while the You Me At Six and All Time Low co-headline trek was voted as Best Event. Speaking of All Time Low, they also beat out the likes of Slipknot, Sleeping With Sirens, Fall Out Boy and AC/DC to be named the Best International Band.
