Last spring, we invited you, our readers, to cast your votes for the 1992 SPY Music Awards. These awards were created to honor acts that are, in the words of Spy's motto, smart, fun, funny and fear-less. The response, we're delighted to say, was unprecedented. (Of course, as this is the first year that we're presenting these awards, the response would have been unprecedented even if we'd received only one ballot; but the response was also large.) Without further ado, we proudly present the winners of the coveted Warped Record for 1992.
