Blog: Why It’s Your Duty To Vote For ‘Maiden At This Year’s Brits
It’s common knowledge that Iron Maiden are one of the best live spectacles in the history of music, we’d like to tell you why it’s your duty to vote for them at this year’s Brits.
Picture the scene: And the nominees for Best Live Act are…Coldplay , Elbow , Iron Maiden, Scouting For Girls and The Verve. And the winner is…Coldplay. Chris Martin stands up from his table with that horrible, smug face of his as the estate agents and usual bunch or Mr & Mrs Ford Mondeo types that think Coldplay’s music is deep, relevant or interesting, applaud yet another award for yet another soulless act.
Would you want that? Would you want Richard ‘monkey’ Ashcroft or that fat bloke from Elbow to be giving an acceptance speech instead of Steve Harris and Bruce Dickinson? Then it is your job, no, it’s your DUTY to vote for Iron Maiden at this year’s Brits right now. Think of the last time you saw Maiden…are Scouting For Girls capable of making people feel that way? Are they bollocks!
This is about flying the flag for heavy metal, fighting the good fight and making sure one of the greatest bands to ever surface from our fair isle are celebrated in the fashion they so rightly deserve.
It would be one in the eye for the Brits too. They’ve ignored metal since they started handing out awards, let’s give ourselves just one moment where we can say “fuck you! Iron Maiden are better than any of the processed, manufactured shit you spoon-feed the public as being important”. ‘Maiden are recognised all over the world as being one of the all-time greats, let’s get them some recognition in their own homeland.
For Iron Maiden and for the good of heavy fucking metal you have a duty. Make that click.
