No. 3 Ain't Too Bad

(antiMusic) We're on record making a little fun of the plethora of "awards" out there. A lot of them are redundant and pointless. So how do we handle the dilemma when our name comes up as a nominee for an award? Since it comes from a source we respect, we're only a little bit hypocritical. We're talking about the MusicPressReport.com's Music Press Awards, which were announced on Sunday. For those not in the music press, MPR is music site that's pretty much required reading for any on the music press that wants to know what in the hell is going on in the industry.

Now back to the Music Press Awards. Here is the crux of what they are about: "Over the past month, we asked our readers - several thousand music journalists and photojournalists from around the world - to nominate and vote for the best in music journalism in 2007."

Now with a Kanye like fit we are sad to announce that we didn't win, which honestly would have been like the biggest stoner in school being elected student body president. But according to the editor of the Music Press Report we did come in 3rd in the best music news site category, which is honestly a bit shocking considering we actually beat some of the biggest corporate music news sources out there. Guess this shows that this web thing really does work, where a little indie pub like ours can be recognized among a field of well funded pubs run by corporations. But any and all credit really goes to our incredible sources who make the Day in Rock possible. We nominated our favorite (Gigwise) who didn't win, but they get the credit here at least. (We like them because of their broad coverage. Not to discount our other sources, we love them too or they wouldn't be featured here.)

Check out the awards list and see if your favorites made the list! And thanks to those that nominated and voted for us. While we didn't seek the recognition, we are grateful for it (in our own twisted--let's try not to be hypocritical--way. And we were kidding about the fit part.) - MusicPressReport.com's Music Press Awards
