Does anyone actually know why Nirvana wasn't in this flick?

(Of course, you can probably also spin this point in Nirvana's favor if you're so inclined. I mean, what's better, not having a song on the soundtrack, or being in, but playing second fiddle to Paul Westerberg? :-D )

Ans yes, good stuff, ironman! ;-D

Good point, Arlo, although I actually did like most of that soundtrack. One of my personal favs.

If you're implying it was me, it weren't. I don't like either of these bands and have been a casual observer since Tool left.

It was me, I was hoping it would end in a draw. Neither of these bands deserve to win.

Metallica
Megadeth
Pantera
Stone Temple Pilots
Tool
Soundgarden

I would have been interested if any of these had made it near the finals. Unfortunately this tournament was ruined by panty bands like RHCP and U2.
