Radiohead Voted World's Best Band

LONDON (AP) _ Moody rockers Radiohead were voted the world's best band at the annual Q music awards Monday.

The band _ which topped both British and U.S. charts last year with its Grammy-winning album ``Kid A'' _ beat REM, U2 and British bands Manic Street Preachers, Stereophonics and Travis to take the prize, chosen by readers of Britain's Q magazine.

Past Q awards ceremonies, held at London's expensive Park Lane hotel, have seen boisterous behavior by some attendees. But this year the present-day chart-toppers were upstaged by John Lydon _ formerly Johnny Rotten of the Sex Pistols _ who received the ``inspiration'' award for his influence on music.

Lydon _ who arrived at the hotel in a horse and cart and with his trademark shock of hair dyed orange and black _ accepted his award in stalwart punk fashion.

``Who wants this?'' the 45-year-old punk pioneer asked the audience, ``because it doesn't mean anything to me.''
