Green Day, Metallica, Kings of Leon & More Nominated for “NME” Awards

Image Group LA/ABCGreen Day, Metallica and Kings of Leon are all nominated for the 2017 NME Awards. The British publication put all three up for the title of Best International Band, along with Tame Impala, A Tribe Called Quest and Tegan and Sara.

As for the Best British Band category, The 1975, Bastille, Wolf Alice and The Last Shadow Puppets are among the nominees.

The 1975's I like it when you sleep, for you are so beautiful yet so unaware of it and Bastille's Wild World are both up for Best Album, as is Radiohead's A Moon Shaped Pool.

Meanwhile, Twenty One Pilots, perhaps the biggest band of 2016, is nominated in the Worst Band category. They'll be competing for that dishonor with the likes of Nickelback, hit-making DJ duo The Chainsmokers and Australian pop-punk band 5 Seconds of Summer.

Other NME Awards nominees include Radiohead, Coldplay and Foals for Best Festival Headliner, The 1975, Bastille, Wolf Alice and Bring Me the Horizon for Best Live Band, and the late David Bowie for Hero of the Year.
