Electric guitar player Matt Bellamy has expressed his delight after Muse were named as the Best British Band at last night's NME Awards.
The Devon-based group beat tough competition on the shortlist to claim the award ahead of the likes of Arctic Monkeys, Kasabian and Oasis.
"That's a genuine surprise," said Bellamy as the band collected the award from Lily Allen and electric guitar star Slash. "It's very humbling to win that award against the Monkeys [and] Kasabian.
"[It's] great to receive it from a couple of music legends."
Other winners at the ceremony included Jamie T as Best Solo Artist and Paul Weller who took the Godlike Genius award.
Kasabian won the Best Album prize, while The Specials took home the Outstanding Contribution to Music Award.
