If you missed the initial live-stream airing of the 2014 Revolver Magazine Golden Gods Awards on Wednesday, April 23rd, VH1 Classic has announced it will also be airing it on May 24, 2014, starting at 8 p.m. (Eastern/Pacific). While WWE's Chris Jericho didn't host the event at Club Nokia this year (we missed you hosting Chris!), the awards show snagged the "That Metal Show" trio to host instead (Eddie Trunk, Don Jamieson and Jim Florentine). If you've never watched the annual Golden Gods Awards before, it is the ONLY awards show of its kind that honors today's best musicians in metal and rock music.
Artists slated to be in attendance and to present this year's awards include Alice Cooper, Rob Zombie, Marilyn Manson, Dave Navarro, Linkin Park, Joe Manganiello, Tony Hawk, Carmen Electra and Andrew Dice Clay. Musical artists performing at this year's event include a surprise performance by Slayer, Guns N' Roses, Joan Jett and Zakk Wylde. Axl Rose will take home the Ronnie James Dio Lifetime Achievement Award and Joan Jett will be the first female performer to receive the annual Golden God Award (congratulations to Joan!).
