    Battle of the Current Bands III

    It's been 2 and a half years since the last one, why not?

    Current honour board:
    Code:
    2007 (I): The Killers
    2009 (II): Radiohead
    Remember, only bands who released albums in the past 5 years and haven't folded since then can be nominated.

    We are using the Brumby system rather than the head-to-head one for this.
    5-0

    RIP Craig Walsh (Craig) 1985-2012

    Proudly supporting the #2 cricketer of all time.

    Proudly against the bring back Bennett movement since he is injury prone and won't last 5 days.

    First time REM haven't been eligible. Feel rather saddened by that.

    "as much a news event as an actual footballer, a worthy stop-start centre forward, but an all-time hyper-galactico when it comes to doing funny things with cars and hats, a player whose signing proves once again that the Premier League is still undoubtedly the best in the world when it comes to doing things with cars and hats."

    The Killers won it first time? What?

    From what I've seen in the music threads, this will be a battle between Radiohead fans and those trying to make sure Radiohead don't win it, so reckon I'll not be in here much.
    Every 5 years we have an election and have to decide who are the least obnoxious out of all the men. Then one gets in and they age really quickly. Which is always fun to watch.

    Why is this even a question: Radiohead, obviously.
