The Modern Age Is a Shockwaves NME Awards 2008 Nominee!

Move over Arctic Monkeys, Jack Penate, Lily Allen, and Jenny Lewis! Just when you thought that this blog wasn’t about music, NME has decided to nominate this lil’ old website as one of the Best Music Blogs for the Shockwaves NME Awards 2008 MUWAHAHAHAHAH!

the modern age shockwaves nme awards 2008

Of course it’s just an honor to be nominated alongside fellow nominees: The Hype Machine, Nothing But Green Lights, Spinner, and Stereogum.


Why should you vote for me? Which other blog nominated is perpetually stuck in 2002? Which other blog is certifiably obsessed with the White Stripes and The Strokes? Which other blog is brave enough to tell the world that their cellphone ring tone is “Move Along” by the All-American Rejects? ONLY THEMODERNAGE.ORG!

Do you want to see me continue to become a power-hungry megalomaniac? You can make that happen by voting The Modern Age for Best Music Blog over at NME.COM/awardsnominees. Get your votes in by 10am (GMT aka 5am EST) on Monday February 25. According to the site, you could win VIP tickets to the ceremony, which takes place in London on February 28.

What could I do to persuade you to vote for me? KEEP IT REASONABLE!
