Twenty One Pilots: ‘Best Rock Video’ at 2016 MTV Video Music Awards
Although it wasn't mentioned during the live broadcasting on Sunday night, it appears that Twenty One Pilots took home the ‘Best Rock Video‘ award at the 2016 MTV Video Music Awards.
The Columbus, Ohio alternative duo nabbed the award for their ‘Suicide Squad’ soundtrack hit, "Heathens".
It wasn't immediately clear on Sunday night (August 28) that ‘Heathens’ had won the recognizable MTV "Moon Man" trophy. The VMAs ceremony ended without a Best Rock Video winner being announced, nor was it promptly posted on MTV's website with the other VMAs winners. As now confirmed by Alternative Press, ‘Heathens’ has emerged victorious as Best Rock Video champ.
‘Heathens’ came out on top among the category's other popular nominees; All Time Low's ‘Missing You’, Coldplay's ‘Adventure of a Lifetime’, Fall Out Boy's ‘Irresistible’ and Panic! at the Disco's ‘Victorious’ all shared the VMAs' Best Rock Video nomination with Twenty One Pilots.
‘Heathens’ was written by Twenty One Pilots' Tyler Joseph and Josh Dun specifically for director David Ayer'sSuicide Squad.
