Voted by a select K! Awards Judging Panel
Presented by Paul Brannigan
A very special appearance was made at The Kerrang! Awards 2006 by a man who is integral to Kerrang! Magazine's history. His band graced the first EVER cover of the magazine back in 1981, and are on the tip of every one's tongue when discussing the most important and influential rock bands in history. To help celebrate the 25th birthday of Kerrang!, on the night of the Awards, was AC/DC's Angus Young, who in turn was presented by Kerrang! Editor Paul Brannigan with The Kerrang! Legend accolade. AC/DC are without a shadow of a doubt one of the biggest rock bands ever, and this Award represents the important relationship that the band and Kerrang! have enjoyed over the last 25 years.
