In many ways, 2012 could be called the Year of the Woman in hard rock and metal. In genres of music that have long-been male dominated, a handful of female-fronted acts stole the show this year, making the Rock Goddess of the Year an especially intriguing category in the 2012 Loudwire Music Awards.
Who says the music video is a dead artform? MTV may not show them anymore, but thanks to the Internet, bands can still deliver some stunning clips, as evidenced by the nominees in the Metal Video of the Year category in the 2012 Loudwire Music Awards.
Music can be a listening pleasure as well as a visual experience, and for the 2012 Rock Video of the Year honors, we've got five clips that truly embrace the art form to enhance the stories told in song.
Marilyn Manson may not win an Oscar for his short film 'Born Villain,' directed by Hollywood star Shia LaBeouf, but he can rejoice in the fact that the movie earned the honor of the WTF Moment of the Year in the 2011 Loudwire Music Awards.
