Placebo capped a brilliant 2009 last night in Berlin by scooping the award for Best Alternative Act at the MTV Europe Music Awards. The band beat off stiff competition from Paramore, The Prodigy, Muse and The Killers to pick up the prize which is just reward for their constant touring and brilliant new album “Battle For The Sun”.
Brian Molko said of the award: “What makes it so significant is that it’s been voted for by fans and MTV viewers and that’s why we’re so touched.”
