Voting has just opened in the annual 'Shockwaves NME Awards'. You-know-who are in contention.

On February 17 the great and the good of the rock world will 'descend on a central London location for the ultimate rock'n'roll party of the year.' (It says here.)

The 'ShockWaves NME Awards' is the only gong-giving ceremony in which the
winners and losers are chosen not by some 'industry' panel but by ordinary music fans. (It continues to say here)

And there's a barrow-load of brilliant new bands up for your vote this year including Franz Ferdinand, Razorlight, Scissor Sisters, The Killers and The Bravery.

Not forgetting Morrissey, the Pixies, the Beastie Boys , White Stripes, The
Strokes and Kings Of Leon.
And of course, there's our very own U2 who qualify in categories like 'Best International Band', 'Best Album', 'Best Single' and a whole bunch of others.
