We could just fast track all the obviously deserving bands such as The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, Bob Dylan etc, etc. and save us the bother of having a nomination process for the heavyweights, so to speak, but as someone has already pointed out, this isn't a general all encompassing Hall of Fame. It's the 'MusicBanter Hall of Fame' and should reflect the choice of bands by the members here.

We could always copy and paste the standard HMV, Rolling Stone, or any other dull, predictable and largely inaccurate most popular band bollocks if you'd prefer...


This is all I meant by voting "No". Bands like the beatles are obviously going to get in automatically, and after a few months the "hall of fame" will be filled with your standard "rolling stone top 50 bands ever" baby boomer blowing trash. Yeah, The Beatles, Stones, Led Zeppelin, etc should all be in. But after month 6 of the 30th landslide vote welcoming in another obvious 60's group that is in every single 'best of' list ever, everyone will tire of the process and the more underrated/unknown groups (at least more so than the Beatles) won't even had the effort put in to vote them in.

There might be ten sacred cows here even most of them will get some dispute.

If you're posting in the music forums make sure to be thoughtful and expressive, if you're posting in the lounge ask yourself "is this something that adds to the conversation?" It's important to remember that a lot of people use each thread. You're probably not as funny or clever as you think, I know I'm not.

Still an incredibly dumb reason not to vote for them.

If you think they should be in, VOTE FOR THEM, thats how they get in dummy.

And I don't think this is gonna only favor the most popular of artists, Elliot Smith made it after all.

I hope my nomination is coming up soon, I think it will be a pretty controversial one.

You haven't been here long though, so you wouldn't know what artists are mainly liked. Again, Elliott Smith is widely liked, go to another forum and i'll bet you won't find as many fans.
It's not going to be as obvious as you've said it will be, and i can prove that with the next nomination...

The Beatles are in by a landslide.
Next up by monsieur boo boo

Yes



Yes were one of the most ambitious and innovative bands of the 70s and they were pioneers in the progressive rock genre. The band has had several lineup changes, and thus have been through several evolutions throughout their 40 year existance.

Yes brought many unheard of elements into rock music. The band consisted of classically trained musicians of virtuoso level abillity, all with a diverse range of influences. Yes were heavly influenced by classical music, jazz, folk, pop, music hall and even motown. They had verry little trace of blues in their music, which was extremely rare for a rock band.

Yes at a time, had one of the most unique and defined sounds of any rock band, along with Zep, The Who, Black Sabbath, Queen, Cream. Yes were one of the finest ensembles in rock. Jon Andersons trademark, soft spoken falsetto vocals and rather bizarre mystical lyrics, Steve Howes unique blend of jazz, country and classical guitar combined with his innovative use of effects as well as his use of several other instruments, Chris Squires distinctive distorted bass sound and intricate melodicism, Rick Wakeman who is the greatest keyboard virtuoso in rock and Bill Bruford, a drum god that rivals Neil Peart. That along with the artwork of Roger Dean gave them a very special indentity in the early 70s and they are considered one of the ultimate nerd bands, with an incredibly loyal fanbase. Not to mention they are one of the most influencial bands in progressive rock.

Oh, that and they were just plain awesome.

I haven't heard nearly enough Yes to cast a vote quite yet.

In the middle of a download spree, getting:
Tormato
90125
The Yes Album
Fragile
Big Generator

Maybe I'll be able to cast a vote by the end of the week.
