you confuse me.
Do I? Maybe its the fact that I'm an intellectual super power. My curse is that no one else is, alas. Digression aside...

It would be more far if people voted without seeing who was in the lead.

You had boo boo who voted for the Fall because they beat Led Zep and he said "if you can't beat em, join them" only to later mock the fall. Then you have people who saw that their option would lose, and seeing as they hated the person in first place, the argument was made that they would rather see anyone win that [band in first place].

Its not to hard to note that people who conglomerated behind say "Sabbath" would have voted another way had sabbath not been their only option to unseat, say, Bright eyes.

Elliott/Bright Eyes bitching aside since its going to go on until I promise to remove them and replace them with Zeppelin and the Who..

Anyone else think its pointless to do favorites/best polls since its just going to be repetitive and annoying? I think instead of doing best/favorite album i'll just title it best album and people can vote however the hell they want and all the classic rock fans who bitch about some album from after the 80s winning can get fucked.

I swear its a conspiracy by the agenda-driven to drive me crazy...Who is demanding that Zeppelin and the Who get put up there? That would be even worse because the boards would just be the general run of the mill Rolling Stone-approved **** house we all loathe to begin with.

And furthermore, are people "bitching" about Smith/Oberst?

No its not pointless to do polls, in fact I think the board is more lively, people check in more and people generally have more fun when the polls are going on. Not to mention that we get some pretty humerous comments to come out in those late hours of late round polls.

And again, Kashmir and ZeppelinAir left along time ago. Who are these classic rock purists you keep harping about?

Throughout doing the polls people kept complaining when some band like Arcade Fire or something beat some classic rock band like Deep Purple. And yes people have been bitching about Smith/Oberst, just look at the last poll thread to see it. I'm tired of arguing it, its getting ridiculous people just need to accept the fact theirs fans of them on these boards.

And i like doing the polls I don't think they're pointless, I just think doing separate ones for favorite and best is pointless, which is what i was going to do but changed my mind as of now, i'd like other opinions on it though.

We need more good threads and more active members. This board is booooring.

The Darkness need to win the best debut album poll. Seriously.

Bitching? Stop it!
Polls? Keep doing them!

If you re-do this poll in six months, the answers will be different (except for Bowie I hope)

Because as Foxxy Love would say:
"You guys flip flop more than the footwear of the same name."

Yiiiipaah!

If we'd all like to take a break from going for everyones throat, let me ask this question:

Do you think the list reflects a low level of diversity. I mean, for all intents those are bands "rock" fans would enjoy. We have no rap in that list, no funk, no reggae, no country, no blues, no jazz, no classical. I mean, its tough to fault anyone, we all put what we liked but I think more scary than the list as a poor representation is that we don't seem to steer out of a handful of genre types.

So we're all clear this wasn't an attack on anything. I'm posing a question. Put your thoughts here provided you didn't imagine that tirade was a clever and thinly veiled attack on your person.

if I remember correctly there weren't many diverse choices.
I remember no jazz, country, classical, or blues (but I doubt if there were they would be chosen)

There wasn't any because no one nominated any.

I said that.

I'm saying thats a tad bit more disheartening than the list we did pick.
