2012 Revolver Golden Gods Awards Announced

Kate will not be at the Golden Gods
These awards are fucking lame beyond belief. I can not believe this shit has actually been happening for four years now…that this awards show franchise has taken hold. Fucking thing sucks.

The fourth annual Revolver Golden Gods award show is going down April 11 at Club Nokia in Downtown Los Angeles, and somehow involves XBox Live. I don’t care.

On that same day, The Grammy Museum — next door to Club Nokia — will open its new exhibit “Golden Gods: The History Of Heavy Metal.”

Mounted in coordination with Revolver, the exhibit will feature never-before-displayed artifacts including instruments, stage props, handwritten lyrics, clothing and costumes, alongside original album artwork, posters and live-performance and interview footage.

Sounds dumb. Here are this year’s electrifying nominees.
