    Battle of the Bands

    OK, this is pretty much just a rip off of a thing that Triple M (an Aus radio station) do every now and again. I'll name two bands, and in the following 24 hours people post who they want to go through to the next round. Whoever gets the most votes wins that battle, whoever loses is knocked out.

    We need to establish a squad of 32 bands/artists to do battle. I'll name 32 bands now, and any changes that you'd like to see made will be considered. If you want to see a band included, then indicate who you'd like to see them replace.

    32 Bands/Artists
    1. Beastie Boys
    2. Coldplay
    3. Athlete
    4. Radiohead
    5. Eminem
    6. Smiths, The
    7. Williams, Robbie
    8. U2
    9. Rolling Stones
    10. Guns 'N' Roses
    11. Timberlake, Justin
    12. Nirvana
    13. Franz Ferdinand
    14. Killers, The
    15. Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds
    16. Presley, Elvis
    17. Jackson, Michael
    18. Oasis
    19. Jamiroquai
    20. Matchbox 20
    21. 50 Cent
    22. Crowded House
    23. Scribe
    24. Muse
    25. Beatles, The
    26. Pearl Jam
    27. Snoop Dogg
    28. Brown, James
    29. Feeder
    30. Mars Volta
    31. Linkin Park
    32. Slipknot


    Rules
    1. You may only post a vote once per battle.
    2. Only votes made within the 24 hours of the battle being declared will be counted. This will be adhered to very strictly.
    3. There will be only this thread for this competition.
    4. How this thread reads at the end of the 24 hour period is how the votes shall be registered.
    5. You have 48 hours from the time of this post to make suggestions for the make-up of the 32.

    Yup, agreed. What about Slipknot for Kylie? She'll be an easybeat.

    Pretty good idea...I can see Coldplay winning this from the number of fans they seem to have on here.

    I'm always a bit hesitant to vote for new bands, because even if I like them now I can't be sure that they will stand the test of time. So you'll probably find me voting for the older band if I like two equally.

    In behalf of myself and BoyBrumby, I'd like to see Nick Cave on the list somewhere.

    Maybe to replace The Bravery.

    All of the above are terrible excuses for metal. There are far superior and less gimmicky bands about.
    Sreesanth said, "Next ball he was beaten and I said, 'is this the King Charles Lara? Who is this impostor, moving around nervously? I should have kept my mouth shut for the next ball - mind you, it was a length ball - Lara just pulled it over the church beyond the boundary! He is a true legend."

    Very happy with that. I think that "The Bravery" are covered by "The Killers".

    Well, who are they to replace? Especially seeing they've released a total of 2 songs of any real note between them.

    Yes, bad mistake by mine. Who to replace though?

    EDIT: Put them in for Jet. I only had Jet there coz I was looking forward to them getting smashed.

    I'd like to canvas other opinions on that one first.
