Black Veil Brides Once Again Face Off Against Hostile Crowd At ‘Golden Gods Awards’ (Updated)

In what is becoming a trend, Black Veil Brides were once again greeted by a hostile crowd at Revolver magazine’s ‘Golden Gods Awards‘. The fifth annual awards show ceremony was held last night (May 02nd) in Los Angeles, CA.

Footage of the band accepting the award for Song Of The Year for their track “In The End” at the event—and summarily facing off against the crowd—can be seen below:

Update – May 03rd 10:53am:

Black Veil Brides frontman Andy Biersack has since commented on his speech at the awards ceremony, offering the following via Twitter:

I won’t ever apologize for speaking my mind or defending myself or my band. Always respect yourself enough to stand proud. I DO however apologize for any generalized or image based comments that I made last night in the midst of my anger.

    These guys would make decent heel wrestling managers. 3 years in a row? Wow.

    • Fred Fred Burger (Darkdevout)

      Yeah they won 3 years in a row!! can you believe it? from the biggest metal awards show in the world *sarcastic clapping*

    3 things..

    Shut up Sebastian Bach.
    BVB, what a classy speech, for a bunch of mouthbreathers.
    And judging by audience reaction, the award really went to Dethklok.

    It’s really dumb when people say “we must be doing something right” when they get booed or get plenty of shouts of “You suck!”
    You’re not doing anything right. People don’t like you. Stop trying to justify it in your own head.

    Somebody PLEASE knock this guy the fuck out. Every band gets booed and is told “you suck”. It happens. Take the damn award, be respectful that you somehow wound up with it, and get off the stage. Don’t barrade the audience with all that bullshit you gave them.

  • Fred Fred Burger (Darkdevout)

    In reality yes they are right, they have songs on the radio, their “popular” but that doesn’t justify saying that your better than someone because you have a song on the radio, Kim Kardashian is a fucking millionaire for nothing, while BVB make a couple of thousand per show. Last time I checked millionare> song on the radio.

  • goop

    I for one would like to see more fingers thrown at awards shows.

  • DexterMorgan

    Is their singer trying out for WWE with that speaking voice?

  • They Ate Their Macaroons in Silence

    Hate to stoop to their elementary school name calling level, but unlike those “fat guys with beards,” I find no distinguishing characteristics to these boys that separate them from the opposite sex. They could all star as The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo.

  • EyeOfEveryScorn

    Real metal bands don’t win or care about stupid fucking awards. I literally knew one band on that list. What the fuck is a Golden God anyway?

  • IAmSancho

    CAN YOU SMELLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL……What Andy Biersack….Is cookin?…..No? Good, because it smells like BULLSHIT!

  • SevenIsMyName

    Note to self: When feeling insecure, and bandmate is so drunk he can’t even say the word “year” use stage voice, and utterly fail at sticking up for yourself gracefully.

  • schuler

    It blows my mind that Revolver is the same magazine that told me about Cursed and Coliseum years and years ago. What a fucking parody.

  • sixteenseconds

    I agree AdamonFire Dude could be Sweet’n’Sorry Sweeny version 2.

  • Sam Eagle

    “I’m holding a heavy as shit award, so fuck with me right now motherfuckers”…

    Unless he is planning to sleep with that thing under his pillow, he won’t be holding onto it forever.

    • AMeN

      Probably masturbates with it.

  • CanYouTransfuse

    I think the audience is angry because they are realizing that “genuine metal” acts are never going to really see any awards show or any recognition in that sense ever again. The machine is full speed ahead and it doesn’t have room for anything that doesn’t have singing in it. My problem is that so many people are giving these types of award shows any merit. What makes you think the inner politics and all around stupidity of the masses only stays at the Grammy’s or Oscars? The same way people get up in arms about movies not winning or being nominated is the same way metal heads get. You are getting all riled up over stupid people who don’t play an instrument, choosing their favorite song of the year that makes their brain feel happy. It isn’t the 90′s anymore, heavy music no longer has a chance on the radio or in mainstream media so why even give these things the time of day?

    Although I will say a little excerpt like this is pretty amazing and I don’t know if it would’ve happened had these awards not gone down so I am torn.

    “I’m not from here. I prefer where I’m from.’ (Booooooo…) “I’m so much better than all of you. You people stink.” (Boooooo….) Takes me back to be 12 years old watching WWE.
