Jane's addiction = Gods. What I've been saying for years.

As part of the first U.S. NME awards Jane's Addiction are going to be given the Godlike genius award. "They are exactly the sort of once-in-a-lifetime, inspirational, aspirational, no-holds-barred, genre-busting, risk-taking, pioneering group which sums up what the NME Awards is all about. Breathtaking live, phenomenal on record, they blazed a trail for alternative music from which others have truly benefited over the past 20 years, and it is with the very greatest pleasure that we acknowledge and honour their contribution to making music which makes the world a better, more exciting place to live in."

Being one of my all time favourite bands and having had the pleasure of seeing them live a few years ago I am delighted with this honour, as superficial as it may be.

Some prime Jane's action after the jump.
