yeah they did...Tool wasnt even in it (but Yes! and The Thomson Twins were :-/ )...and the Beatles won over Floyd :-t


I helped run the Light Side's Battle of the Bands this year, and there's a good explanation for why Tool wasn't in it but the Thompson Twins were. There were three of us ranking bands. One guy hated Tool and ranked them very low, causing them to fall out of the top 62 or whatever. Same thing happened to Def Leppard, I believe. The Thompson Twins made it in on a fluke - two of us rated them so-so and the third guy rated them high. They've sold a ton of music, but that's no reason to have them in the battle.

And The Beatles beat out Pink Floyd because people started voting against people instead of voting for bands they like. It got a little bit petty, really. :-/

Hrmm well we could always try to re-do that battle.

Honestly that's the battle it really should come down to.. Beatles vs. Floyd, maybe Led Zeppelin sneaking in there for one or the other. Let's skip the best band ever.

I did hear a second for best rack. O:-)

I'd be willing to do best TV characters as long as these guys were included-

Gregory House MD
Frasier Crane
Carrie Bradshaw, Samantha, Miranda, and Charlotte ;-)
