PiercingMetal Thoughts: Now I’ve only ever seen the group in action once but I love the whole idea about them and find them to be very entertaining. I’m going to do my best to be a part of the Terminal 5 gig in September and will be certain to catch the opening performance of Avatar who I greatly enjoy. That’s a band you need to see as well if you haven’t already. What do you folks think about this news? I hope you are ready to rally for this kawaii band in full force. This will please the Fox God whom they report to. Chime in down below in the comments section.

If you are interested in seeing who these winners beat out in the competition just click over to my rundown of the nominees on THIS LINK.
PiercingMetal Thoughts: So what do you think about the outcome? Were you surprised by any of it or are you outraged at some of the choices? Remember this is what the fans rallied behind, I don’t really think there is a secreted committee doing any of this like the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Oh yeah and by the way, have you made your voice count on that roster of nominees? If you haven’t, you better get on it since bands like Judas Priest and The Cars are in the running and amount to two personal favorites of mine. My article about the nominees for that honor can be found on THIS LINK. Closing up let me say “congratulations to all of the winners”. Until next time.
