Reformed indie band Suede are to receive the inspiration prize at the Q Awards next week.
The band, who had hits in the 1990s with Animal Nitrate, Stay Together and Beautiful Ones, reunited earlier this year and will release their greatest hits next month.
Crowded House lead singer Neil Finn will also receive a classic songwriter award at Monday's London ceremony.
Bands including Kasabian and Muse are up for the best act in the world award.
They go up against Arcade Fire, Green Day and Kings Of Leon for the night's top prize.
Suede, fronted by Brett Anderson, split up in 2003.
Neil Finn first enjoyed success with his brother Tim's band Split Enz in New Zealand in the 1970s.
In 1985, he formed Crowded House whose hits have included Weather With You, Fall At Your Feet and Don't Dream It's Over.
