Following last week's amazing five nominations for the Brit Awards, Kaiser Chiefs have now been shortlisted in a record-breaking six NME Awards 2006 categories.

A rather pleased drummer Nick Hodgson told NME, "I hope people vote for us because we've never won anything we've been nominated for before".

Kaiser Chiefs are up for Best British Band, Best Album, Best Live Band, Best Track, Best Video, Best Website and Best DVD.

The NME Awards ceremony takes place on 23rd February.
