2002

It was Strokes year at the award show in '02. Radiohead, Ash, Ian Brown, U2 and Kylie also picked up gongs on the night.

At the ceremony, Julian Casablancas said: "This is way more fun than the Brits. It's way more relaxing. The Brits are like industry and this is people." Meanwhile Kylie Minogue (winner of Best Pop Act) admitted she had a "soft spot for The Strokes."
