REVOLVER You guys won more trophies than anybody at the Golden Gods. What was going through your mind as you guys won so many awards?
SYNYSTER GATES That it was set up somehow and I don’t know what the reason is for it. But we certainly don’t deserve it. I don’t know, it was very hard to explain. It was very surreal. ‘Cause nobody told us, we didn’t have any clue it was going to be like that. So it was pretty surprising, shocking, and awesome. We were really happy that we performed after all that shit, too.

Your fans voted for you guys, that’s why you won. It was your fans voting online.
Was it really? That’s pretty crazy.

Matt said onstage that you guys don’t usually play TV shows or awards shows. How come?
Yeah, I probably sound like a douchebag, but it’s more from insecurity. We never played TV-covered events. We don’t play stuff like that. We don’t think we sound good. And we don’t want to—we’re kind of an arena band. We just want to sound fucking big and gigantic and it always just thins out over TV. But because of how good you guys have been to us, and we heard of how cool this thing was going to be—a huge event—we really wanted to do it. And we’re so glad that we did. It was unbelievable.
