Me hating them didn't help. :-b I don't think they were close even with that.


What factors did you guys take into account when seeding? Just personal opinion, or overall popularity, etc?

Too high = Green Day and Thompson Twins. Green Day is just way, way too high in my opinion. Thompson Twins? I'm the one who nominated them and I love em but even I think they are too high.


Too low = Guns N Roses and AC/DC. GNR lost positioning due to one voter who had a very low opinion of them and shall remain namless. :-b AC/DC at 20 is just not right.


Throw Nirvana in the too high list as well.


GNR & their 2-3 albums are WAY too high, IMO. No pun intended. AC/DC is definitely too low. Green Day is way too high & I don't know how the Thompson Twins even made the cut.

There are a couple of other bands that I'm not sure how they made the cut as well, but I'm sure it was difficult to cut down to 64 and even more difficult to seed them. I think there should've been more thrash/heavy metal bands that made the cut, but then again I'm biased because that's the kind of music I like best.

Great job of organizing this knapp, Vader, & moon. ;-D


i'm a fairly knowledgeable music fan, and i dont even know who the hell the Thompson Twins are

...and no Tool :-t :-t :-t

Definitely not just personal like or dislike. I can't stand Pink Floyd but I still voted very high for them, not as high as the other 2 but still very high.

Yeah, same here. I do NOT like the Rolling Stones, but I recognize their contribution to the world of music so I voted them high.

Not that I don't appreciate the work you guys put into the seeding, but I'm curious as to learn how you decided to place Thompson Twins on a list that doesn't include a band that sold two RIAA certified Diamond (10 million+) selling albums like Def Leppard. :-?

Because I— I mean, one of the judges was in the audience at the Devany Center in Lincoln, NE in 1988 when Joe Elliott got ALL concerts banned there because he was such an 8-o EDIT 8-o that they said “never again!”

But that’s just a theory. ;-)
