  • St. Louis Sports Lounge Battle of the Bands!

    It's time for the St. Louis Sports Lounge Battle of the Bands!

    Over the next few weeks, I'll post three or four different polls per night and you can vote for whoever you wish! In this thread, I will constantly update the image in this thread with the updated results.


    I more or less randomly placed each band in a bracket. I decided not to break the brackets down into categories because judging by the suggestions, most people were nominating primarily rock bands. So instead, I just took suggestions and placed them where ever. The only thing I'm doing is making sure obviously similar bands are in separate brackets--example, the Stones and Beatles are the two biggest British bands so they're separate, same with Pearl Jam and Nirvana when it comes to the Seattle/grunge scene.

    Each region has 24 bands. Eight in each get a bye. The first round is the play-in round. Obviously huge groups get byes (based primarily on my own opinion of who was huge in terms of both popularity and impact). There is no numeric seeding for the sake of eliminating bias but if you are familiar with NCAA brackets, you might be able to get a pretty good idea of who is seeded what.

    Lastly, I tried to prevent having a person represented twice, and thus I don't have Eric Clapton and all of his bands; just Clapton. Or John Lennon and the Beatles; just the Beatles.

          I'm warning you all... I've got a personal agenda against the Beatles. While good songwriters, they are too much hype, IMHO.

          However, knowing that, I won't do anything to alter the polls.

              You're right, they probably should be in somewhere. But I could only include so many.

                I posted this in the thread below - can someone tell me if I'm right or wrong????

                Am I misreading the bracket, or are Skynyrd and Thorogood supposed to be squaring off?
                If you believe in something sacrifice a hobo to it or don't bother.

                  I'm glad you found employment, as it looks as though you have time on your hands.

                      Carpenters, fine, but don't take out NWA. All these damn racists here won't vote em too far, but at least they are deservering.

                        did I really just see the Fabulous Thunderbirds...???
                        . . . and to tell you this: I work with gays, have friends who are gay, go to church with gays. Most of them are aware that I believe that homosexual behavior is sin. Some of them actually agree. Most don't. It's OK . . . because they also know or at least have been made aware of my multitude of sins: adulterous heart, lustful and covetous behavior, wicked pride, angry spirit . . . do I need to go on?

                          Ok..Ok...I got the message on NWA..(although they SUCKED...I mean...the Beastie Boys are more deserving)

                          But how did they get a first-round bye??

                          And we must...must...replace the Carpenters with the Dead..

                 boy Elvis Costello will be up against James Brown if he wins...and then The Who (likely) if he beats James...

                          Damn...dont know if I have enough alter egos to ensure he wins
