It's the Metal Hammer Golden Gods today! The ultimate party and recognition of rock and metal on the planet – and you're invited! Stay tuned to this page throughout the day for everything Golden Gods-y – from HMS Hammer sailing down the Thames to Killing Joke closing the award ceremony. This will be big.

What a way to end the Golden Gods. Killing Joke, we fucking love you.
