Band take home honour for 'Na Na Na…' clip
The band played the song earlier to open the ceremony at the London O2 Academy Brixton before picking up the trophy from Being Human actors Lenora Crichlow and Russell Tovey.
Minus the balaclavas they performed in, the suited band were led to the stage by frontman Gerard Way.
“We want to thank every fan that voted for us,” said Way as he collected their award, before adding, “don’t ever let the media tell you what your body is supposed to look like, you’re beautiful just the way you are. Keep it ugly.”
The award is supported by NME TV.
My Chemical Romance are also nominated for the Best International Band award, set to be given out later in the evening.
