Greatest Bands Ever

Postby ElectroGirl » Wed Jul 22, 2009 2:16 pm UTC

I know it's already been sort of done before but I had never heard of half the bands so I thought it would be cool to do with bands more people have heard of.

These are my top ten favourite bands/artists and to get the definitive list of greatest bands/artists each new person to the thread deletes the one they least like and adds one they would prefer. Rankings in the ten don't really matter so just add and delete as desired and no double posting. :)

Hopefully it won't epic fail...

Muse
Foo Fighters
Queen
David Bowie
Nine Inch Nails
Radiohead
Rage Against The Machine
The Beatles
Led Zeppelin
Kings Of Leon

I followed the directions to the T. 1) Select my least favorite from the ten available. 2) Replace it with one I would prefer to see on the list. Methinks the methodology is flawed, to say the least.
