Blink-182 voted most animal-friendly band by PETA

Blink-182 and AFI's Davey Havok were honoured for their investment in animal rights at the PETA2 Libby Awards

Blink-182 have been named the most animal-friendly band of 2016.

The band beat Matt & Kim, Tonight Alive and Farewell, My Love to the top spot at the Libby Awards, organised by PETA's youth arm PETA2.

The award is given out based on the nominees' investment in animal rights, their fans interest and online voting. Blink-182's Mark Hoppus and Travis Barker are vegans, while newest member Matt Skiba is a vegetarian.
