    OK, we need 19 more nominations to start.

    Everyone who has already nominated 2 can nominate up to two more now.

    We need to get this started!

    I noticed that Metallica was nominated but isn't on the list.

    I'll nominate Oasis and Neil Young.

    Audioslave, Tool, Sepultura, Rage Against the Machine, Incubus, Soundgarden

    I didn't check if any of these were already in, so sorry if they are. I just wanted to make the deadline just in case. Couse these bands own! :cool:

    Ummm you only get four total noms. And Audioslave is not eligible. They only have one album and have not been around for 5 years.

    You left off The Police GK. :(

    And I still can't believe we're going to do this tournament without Elvis, not one of my personal favorites but definitely should have been among the original nominations.

    Don't be so sure, there are a LOT of younger voters here. Things will be skewed towards bands from the 90s for a while.

    Garbage - I'll take weird electronic alternative rock stuff over southern good ol'boy rock any day. :)


    Smashing Pumpkins - Excellent match up. A band with a whiny singer vs. a band with a whiny drummer! Lars can suck my toe any day he wants, I hope Metallica never sells another record. Smashing Pumpkins RULE!
