    Congrats to Linkin Park, who added to their impressive resume of award with a "Best Alternative Artist" win tonight at the American Music Awards.

    The band beat out My Chemical Romance and The White Stripes for the award.

    LP were shut out in their other two nominated categories, losing to Daughtry for "Best Pop/Rock Album" and Nickleback for "Best Pop/Rock Band, Duo, or Group".

    Linkin Park wouldn't have been able to even obtain the award anyways seeing as how they're in Asia right now. I'm happy that it wasn't televised either because it saves them from all the teenie boppers watching.

    Naw, I didn't watch it, but it's nice to know that LP won something. I don't understand how Daughtry beat LP though.

    What MCR video beat which LP video?

    Daughtry beat LP because the category was Pop/Rock album, and Daughtry are much more Pop/Rock than LP. What the AMAs SHOULD have done was have a category in Alt/Rock for best album, since that's what LP are, but instead they stuck them under Pop/Rock to compete with actual pop acts. Daughtry, Justin Timberlake, Nickleback, Maroon 5...all of them are predominantly pop, so of course voters are going to concentrate on them. Why there was only one Alt/Rock category when every other genre had 3 or 4 is beyond me. There should have at least been one for best album. That's where MtM should have been nominated.

    Pop/Rock = Pop or Rock. They weren't referring to the pop-rock genre.
