Sticking their proverbial tongue out at all challengers, and barring an uprising from fans of other bands, it looks as if Kiss is in line to be the biggest winner of the 2012 Ultimate Classic Rock Awards. As of now, with one week left in the voting, the band is ahead in six of the 11 categories.

While it’s never too late for a shakeup as we learned last year, Kiss has the lead in the Artist, Album and Song of the Year categories. But it’s not just the success of ‘Monster’ that is generating votes. They are also winning in the fight for the Commercial, Reissue or Archival Release and Photo of the Year awards.

Elsewhere, Led Zeppelin looks set to also win big, with ‘Celebration Day’ taking the front position in both the Live Album and DVD of the Year categories. Guns N’ Roses are fighting off Kiss and Motley Crue for Tour of the Year (34% to 29%), and the Beatles‘ ‘Stereo Vinyl Box Set’ has 29% of the vote, but is facing challenges from Judas Priest (27%) and Heart (22%) in the Best Box Set award.

Although his only new music in 2012 was a well-received Christmas album, Rod Stewart is likely to win one award. His memoir, ‘Rod: The Autobiography,’ has a solid lead in the Book of the Year category, probably for his revelation that he took cocaine anally.

Voting for the 2012 Ultimate Classic Rock Awards will end on Jan. 15, 2013 at 11:59PM Eastern. There’s still time to help your favorite bands, records and songs move up and maybe even win — make sure to vote!
