Porno for Pyros wouldn't have gotten out of Round 1.
Violent Femmes and Talking Heads didn't qualify for this.
Flaming Lips actually got bumped at the last second for Alice In Chains. Sure I could've bumped Ween or Soul Coughing but Lips would've been a Round 1 casualty just like them anyway.
I understand not everyone likes all the bands in this, but you got to respect the fact that both Green Day and White Stripes have received plenty of commercial and critical praise during their careers.
I voted for White Stripes. I like Green Day but am I bigger of fan of the Stripes. I have all four of their albums. I'd say White Blood Cells is my least favorite and De Stijl is my most favorite. If you're just judging them based on "Fell In Love With a Girl" I recommend you listen to more of their stuff before you judge. Although I don't think it'll matter for some you. The whole post-punk/garage rock thing isn't everybody's cup of tea.
