The group was named Best Live Band, and their documentary Crossfire Hurricane the best film.

Chart-topping stars One Direction were named Worst Band, while singer Harry Styles was declared Villain of the Year.

The Killers were handed the Best International Band prize.

Former Smiths guitarist Johnny Marr took NME's Godlike Genius award.

And The Cribs – for which Marr was briefly guitarist – took the prize for Outstanding Contribution.
