Muse, Prodigy and Lostprophets were all big winners at the Kerrang! Awards last night.

In a debateable outcome, Welsh rockers Lostprophets scooped the best British Band gong and the best album for ‘Liberation Transmission.’

Playing the Welsh card, Lostprophets told the crowd when they were picking up their Best Band award, “We’re a smaller country, but we’re tough. We may look like dandies but we can pack a punch.”

The Prodigy received the Spirit of Independence award, while Muse were crowned the Best Live band – their only gong from five nominations.

Slayer were inducted into the Kerrang! Hall of Fame, while AC/DC’s Angus Young was given the Legend award.

The full list of winners was as follows:
