U2 loses “Worst Album”

NME AWARDS 2010 This is one of the times that Bono and the boys can be quite happy they did not win the award. It seems that the bands record “ No Line on the Horizon” was up for the “Worst Album” award at the  Shockwaves NME Awards in London this week. Luckily for them, they lost to tween group the Jonas Brothers for their record “Lines, Vines and Trying Times”.

Other nominees included Green Day’s “21st Century Breakdown”, Lady GaGa’s “The Fame”, and “Humbug” by Arctic Monkeys. At least U2 weren’t nominated for “Worst Band”, which the Jonas Brothers also took home.

It’s funny to see records like “No Line”, “21st Century Breakdown”, and “The Fame” receive some positive recognition for their content (all three were Grammy nominated, with Green Day and GaGa’s records taking home wins), and then they get nominated for “Worst Album”! But clearly, they weren’t as bad as the Jonas Brothers!  Do you agree?
