    Linkin Park Wins Best Rock at 2012 MTV Europe Music Awards

    Congrats to Linkin Park who won Best Rock at last night's MTV Europe Music Awards! By Wikipedia's count, this makes 8 EMA wins in 17 nominations for the band. LP beat out the likes of Coldplay, Green Day, Muse and The Killers for the award.

    See Chester's hilarious acceptance video below:


    The band were also nominated for best North American Act but lost to Rihanna.

    Incredibly boring show. That was the last award given, I watched that crap for 3 hours just to see that...

    Still glad they won. I loved it when Brad fixed Chester's cap (hat, whatever...) Laughed so hard!

    LP is Electronic/Alternative Rock. But it's still rock. That's why bands like Green Day was nominated because they are a Punk Rock band.

    It's nice to see that between all the awards gone to "kids"(musically) like Swift and Bieber, LP got their own. And it's very well deserved. Even though MTV is a (bad) joke

    Actually LP is a Hybrid band think about it. Rock/electronic/alternative/hip hop/ and now folk alittle.

    That's awesome! Congrats to the band!
    The cycle repeated as explosions broke in the sky
    all that I needed was the one thing I couldn't find
    And you were there at the turn waiting to let me know
    We're building it up to break it back down
    We're building it up to burn it down
    We can't wait to burn it to the ground
    The colors conflicted as the flames climbed into the clouds
    I wanted to fix this but couldn't stop from tearing it down
    And you were there at the turn caught in the burning glow
    And I was there at the turn waiting to let you know
    You told me yes you held me high And I believed when you told that lie
    I played that soldier you played king And struck me down when I kissed that ring
    You lost that right to hold that crown I built you up but you let me down
    so when you fall I'll take my turn and fan the flames as your blazes burn



    A fire needs a space to burn, a breath to build a glow.

    With that band being as humble as they are, these awards and nominations must mean very little to them. However, I'm sure it's still appreciated to win. Congratulations to the band!

    I got da credits! Thanks Mark. Back on topic, it seems like LP tends to win best rock quite a lot. And Chester looks and sounds different imo, kinda 2004-ish idk. Hilarious video though
