American rockers GREEN DAY and MY CHEMICAL ROMANCE were the big winners at this year's (05) Kerrang! Rock Awards in London last night (25AUG05).

The AMERICAN IDIOT trio were named Best Band On The Planet and Best Live Band, while New Jersey band My Chemical Romance picked up trophies for Best Album for THREE CHEERS FOR SWEET REVENGE and Best Video for HELENA.
