Congrats to the Foo Fighters for winning the MTV Video Award for "Best Rock Video". That is perhaps the only notable thing about these awards as far as us rockers go. I'm posting a list of all the winners below, just for the hell of it. Compare this year's list to the list of winner's from the first MTV Video Awards and it might make you a little queasy seeing the direction MTV has taken since they were cool back in the day. I've also posted that award winning Foo Fighters video for your enjoyment!
