I thought this would be a would be a good time to mention the award winning entries for Rock, Pop and Hip-Hop for the 7th Annual OUTmusic Awards. The Awards were given in New York City.
The award for OUTstanding Rock Song went to Ariel Aparicio for his cover of the Jim Carroll Band song from 1980, People Who Died. The Punk song is a celebration of the people who had passed before their perceived time. The song is on the Cuban-born rocker's 2010 EP, The Bedroom Tapes.
