One Direction 'worst band' at NME awards

Teen heartthrob Harry Stiles received the dubious honour of villain of the year while his group One Direction were voted worst band by influential UK music magazine NME at its annual awards show on Wednesday.

However, it honoured rock legends the Rolling Stones with two prizes, fifty years after they first graced the magazine's pages.

The veteran performers on Wednesday won the best live band award while their documentary Crossfire Hurricane claimed the best film prize.

Former Smiths guitarist Johnny Marr was also recognised at the east London ceremony, walking away with the Godlike genius gong celebrating his 30 year career.

The Cribs, one of Marr's former bands, received the outstanding contribution award while Given To The Wild by Brighton indie group Maccabees won best album.
