The Revolver Golden Gods awards (The Goddies??) were finally presented last night ... check out who won what!!

A few surprises and a few 'not" surprises.   Avenged Sevenfold took best live act, that was a no brainer!!  They are AWESOME live.

Amy Lee got best vocalist. Really?  Helluva singer but I think Ivan from Five Finger Death Punch should have gotten that one!

Comeback of the year went to Slipknot.  I LOVE Slipknot and I'm happy they won this.  A question though ... did they come back?  They've talked about what they are planning to do but, apparently, I missed them actually doing it.  (Still happy they won though!!  \m/)

I'm not sure I like the "best metal sports guy award" category at all but ... dammit ... Brian Deegan should have won it!  NO sport is more metal than motocross and/or freestyle motocross!!

What do you think El Paso??  Given the choices, did the best "dude" (or dudette) win???????

Check out all the winners below as well as last nights performance from Sixx A.M.  (Congrats to one time El Pasoan Nikki Sixx on landing the best bassist award!)
