    I went with the Ramones..The way Morrissey and Marr ran the smiths, they weren't going very far.

      This is a grudge match...

      2 of my favourite bands...meeting in the first round..


      THE HEADMASTER RITUAL Lyrics

      Belligerent ghouls
      Run Manchester schools

      Spineless swines
      Cemented minds


      Sir leads the troops
      Jealous of youth
      Same old suit since 1962


      He does the military two-step
      Down the nape of my neck


      I wanna go home
      I don't wanna stay
      Give up education
      As a bad mistake


      Mid-week on the playing fields
      Sir thwacks you on the knees


      Knees you in the groin
      Elbow in the face
      Bruises bigger than dinner plates


      I wanna go home
      I don't wanna stay


      Da-da-da ...


      Belligerent ghouls
      Run Manchester schools


      Spineless bastards all ...


      Sir leads the troops
      Jealous of youth
      Same old jokes since 1902


      He does the military two-step
      Down the nape of my neck


      I wanna go home
      I don't want to stay
      Give up life
      As a bad mistake


      Please excuse me from gym
      I've got this terrible cold coming on
      He grabs and devours
      He kicks me in the showers
      Kicks me in the showers
      And he grabs and devours


      I want to go home
      I don't want to stay...


      Da-da-da ...

      I just dont know if the Ramones can top this...but I will try..

        The Smiths are good, but I hate Morrisey, and the Ramones just flat out rock.

            See, this match up just isn't right. Two of my own personal top 10 bands facing each other.

            Dammit.

            Morrissey and Marr - screams at my total nerdy, brit pop loving self.

            The Ramones - define garage rock/sound for me.

            I lost my virginity while listening to The Ramones. So there's my vote.

              I guess Sheena really was a punk rocker

              Do you wanna dance..baby, hold my hand...

              These guys did invent the 3-chord, punk/garage rock sound...

              I just cant get myself to vote for them...

              I have had the pleaure of seeing the Smiths in concert (Morrisey said...Australia was the only place that made him feel happy)...and not the Ramones...

              Damnit!!

                When the voting for these bands are over..

                I would like to know who voted for the Smiths...

                You can tell a lot about a person...especially his past...by knowing whether or not they voted for the Smiths...

                  I just can't do it...

                  As much as I love Joey, Dee Dee and the boys...I cant force myself to vote against the Smiths...

                  Why??

                  This album..


                  The Queen Is Dead

                  Lyrics by Stephen Morrissey
                  Music by Johnny Marr
                  Oh ! Take me back to dear old Blighty,
                  Put me on the train for London Town,
                  Take me anywhere,
                  Drop me anywhere,
                  Liverpool, Leeds or Birmingham
                  But I don't care,
                  I should like to see my ...

                  I don't bless them
                  Farewell to this land's cheerless marshes
                  Hemmed in like a boar between arches
                  Her very Lowness with a head in a sling
                  I'm truly sorry - but it sounds like a wonderful thing

                  I said Charles, don't you ever crave
                  To appear on the front of the Daily Mail
                  Dressed in your Mother's bridal veil ?
                  Oh ...
                  And so, I checked all the registered historical facts
                  And I was shocked into shame to discover
                  How I'm the 18th pale descendant
                  Of some old queen or other

                  Oh, has the world changed, or have I changed ?
                  Oh has the world changed, or have I changed ?

                  Some 9-year old tough who peddles drugs
                  I swear to God
                  I swear : I never even knew what drugs were
                  Oh ...
                  So, I broke into the palace
                  With a sponge and a rusty spanner
                  She said : "Eh, I know you, and you cannot sing"
                  I said : "That's nothing - you should hear me play piano"

                  We can go for a walk where it's quiet and dry
                  And talk about precious things
                  But when you're tied to your Mother's apron
                  No-one talks about castration
                  Oh ...

                  We can go for a walk where it's quiet and dry
                  And talk about precious things
                  Like love and law and poverty
                  Oh, these are the things that kill me

                  We can go for a walk where it's quiet and dry
                  And talk about precious things
                  But the rain that flattens my hair ...
                  Oh, these are the things that kill me

                  All their lies about make-up and long hair, are still there

                  Past the Pub who saps your body
                  And the church who'll snatch your money
                  The Queen is dead, boys
                  And it's so lonely on a limb
                  Past the Pub that wrecks your body
                  And the church - all they want is your money
                  The Queen is dead, boys
                  And it's so lonely on a limb

                  Life is very long, when you're lonely
                  Life is very long, when you're lonely
                  Life is very long, when you're lonely
                  Life is very long, when you're lonely

                    I don't care what you people say. I love Morrissey. "Vauxhall & I" was a great album...

                    And dammit, The Smiths were absolutely wonderful. Shiela Take A Bow, Heaven Knows I'm Miserable Now, William It Was Really Nothing...

                    Even though I voted Ramones, it was purely memory-driven. Vote for the Smiths folks. They deserve it.

                      I am the son
                      and the heir
                      of a shyness that is criminally vulgar
                      I am the son and heir
                      of nothing in particular

                      You shut your mouth
                      how can you say
                      I go about things the wrong way

                      I am human and I need to be loved
                      just like everybody else does

                      I am the son
                      and the heir
                      of a shyness that is criminally vulgar
                      I am the son and the heir
                      of nothing in particular

                      You shut your mouth
                      how can you say
                      I go about things the wrong way

                      I am human and I need to be loved
                      just like everybody else does

                      There's a club if you'd like to go
                      you could meet somebody who really loves you
                      so you go, and you stand on your own
                      and you leave on your own
                      and you go home, and you cry
                      and you want to die

                      When you say it's gonna happen "now"
                      well, when exactly do you mean?
                      see I've already waited too long
                      and all my hope is gone

                      You shut your mouth
                      how can you say
                      I go about things the wrong way
                      I am human and I need to be loved
                      just like everybody else does

                      another song that sticks from my '120 minutes' days. One of the few categories where I won't care who make the next round, but I'd like to see the Smiths make it b.c of a few songs.

                        Ally-

                        I was really surprised that you voted for the ramones...

                        How could you not vote for this...


                        William It Was Really Nothing

                        The rain falls hard on a humdrum town
                        This town has dragged you down
                        Oh, the rain falls hard on a humdrum town
                        This town has dragged you down
                        Oh, no, and everybody's got to live their life
                        And God knows I've got to live mine
                        God knows I've got to live mine
                        William, William it was really nothing
                        William, William it was really nothing
                        It was your life ...

                        How can you stay with a fat girl who'll say :
                        "Oh ! Would you like to marry me ?
                        "And if you like you can buy the ring"
                        She doesn't care about anything
                        Would you like to marry me ?
                        And if you like you can buy the ring
                        I don't dream about anyone - except myself !
                        Oh, William, William it was really nothing
                        William, William

                          This is tough, but I went with the Smiths.

                            This was probably the toughest vote yet. Two great bands. I voted Smiths, though I used to sing Ramones songs in a high school band, hehe.
