ECMA 2009 Music Award Nominees

Here's a good Friday morning drinking game to play while reading this list: Procure large bottle of Bailey's. Procure cup of coffee. For every band you've never heard of on this list (or for every corporate sponsor), down a shot with a coffee chaser. Conversely, you may just opt to sigh loudly.
