2005 Music Awards

The First, Big 2005-And-Before Edition

To celebrate this First Edition of our Annual Music Awards, we went all out.

You see, the following Awards (from 2006 and on) will feature only the music, bands, and festivals of that year. But for this, our First Annual Awards, we decided that we couldn’t just pass up all the great music and festivals from prior years that we didn’t have a chance to actually Award until now. So, not only did we Nominate and Award those bands whose music was featured in 2005, we pitted them against those in previous years, as well! In essence, whether the music featured in this set of Awards is classic or brand new, the Nominees and Winners of the 2005 Music Awards are the best of the best to date [through ’05].
