In the Event of the Year list, Rage Against the Machine's campaign to get a U.K. Christmas number one, and the resurgence in popularity of Journey's "Don't Stop Believing", are the top contenders. The Rolling Stones' "Exile On Main St", The Beatles' "Reissues" and AC/DC's "Backtracks" are in the running for the Reissue of the Year trophy.

Kristen Stewart's film "The Runaways" - the biopic of Joan Jett's 1970s band - will be pitted against "The Doors: When You're Strange", "Oil City Confidential", "Saxon: Heavy Metal Thunder", and "Rush: Beyond The Lighted Stage" in the DVD/Film of the Year category. Alice Cooper will host the event at London's Roundhouse venue on November 10.
