VOTE HERE!! It’s Your Homicidols Best of 2023 Ballot

It is time! You’ve spent twelve months watching, streaming, celebrating and grieving all that the world of alternative and underground idol could throw at you. You’ve told us what you felt were the most significant and compelling moments of the last year. We (meaning, “primarily Kerrie”), have compiled your thoughts and, by community consensus, arrived at our OFFICIAL nominees for Homicidols Best of 2023.

If one of your favorites failed to snag a nomination and you wish to (diplomatically) tell the community how poor it’s taste and judgment is, feel free to drop by the Homicidols Discord server and let everyone know how much you agree with me that RAY should have gotten a nomination for both Album AND Idol of the Year.

Check out all of the nominations below and find your ballot at the bottom of this post.

(Please note that our Best Of ’23 award-year ran from December, 2022 to November, 2023, so if you are wondering where the reboot of LADYBABY or the Guso Drop/BURST  GIRL reunion are, remember that they happened in December, so look for them on next year’s Best of 2024 ballot.)

You have until next Wednesday, January 17th, 2024 to vote your hearts out.

Yay Democracy!!
