Naturally, there will be some among you who are pissed with the outcomes of some of these award categories, to which I say…chill out. It's all about the party and the hang anyway.

Other highlights of the show include Kerry King coming out with two shots of Jager, and one of them being for his fallen brother, Jeff Hanneman. Black Veil Brides got booed when they won their award and in turn flipped off the crowd and turned totally heel, as if I was watching a wrestling PPV, it was amazing. Metallica and Danzig killed it with their performances, but the set of the night, in this humble attendee's opinion was The Dillinger Escape Plan!
