Seriously - fuck whoever nominated a GD Nickelback song.

And if you're going to nominate one...are we really going to nominate the one that is so clever as to rime "Get in" with...uh..."get in"....TWICE!

That had to be tongue in cheek, it's possibly the worst song I've ever heard.

In the history of rock and roll bands there couldn't be a better band to choose than Nickleback? Really?

This one was a little hard for me. I've always liked the Steve Jones song, but it's not very exceptional for anything other than it's connection to the Sex Pistols. Paradise City is one of the few Guns 'n Roses songs that I really like. Neither of them made the cut for me. Wicked Garden is a great song too, but...

Dropkick Murphys, Blackfoot, and Bruce Springsteen were my picks.

A bunch of great ones will get left out of the top nine of the inclusion poll and could easily take 3rd in yet another round.

I'd rather eat moldy spaghetti from a used colostomy bag than listen to Nickleback.

Dropkick Murphys ftw.

Obviously an error on my part.


On another note, I seeded in the inclusionary songs, desperately hoping that one or more would break up the juggernaut of Heat 23. Alas, none of them fell into that heat.

There should have been a limit of one nomination per person or something. There are WAY too many crappy songs in these lists.

There wasn't an actual nomination thread. Luckily most of the garbage will be sorted out this first round.

Rep. In all seriousness, Working on the Highway is my second-favorite Springsteen song after Cadillac Ranch. It is indeed a rocking song, and I hope people listen to it before they vote.

I can't find a good recording of it, but here's a decent version that misses most of the good guitar.

This may be the best-sounding one, but the song doesn't start until about 45 seconds. Repeat: the first 45 seconds are NOT part of the song. It's just a transition.

There's like thirtysomething total.

Rain Man

Working on the Highway is probably in my top five list of all songs, and it's definitely rock and roll in the most classic sense, so it's in.

We are the Champions also gets my vote, even though it's far from Queen's best. After Working on the Highway, this is a very weak heat.

I guess I'll give the Dropkick Murphys a vote for the instruments, even though the singing was horrible.

35 heats in the first round. Vote Springsteen in this heat and let's get the flotsam out of there.

Nickelback is a quality band.

I can't believe how many people have never heard the song Train, Train. Because no one could hear this song and not vote for it.

It's got a nice train sound at the beginning.

I really like the train sound at the beginning. But then it gets derailed and eventually becomes more like a train wreck.

We need a good Working on the Highway audio to convince the voters. Can you find a good one?

I love that song.

I love that song.

I love The Boss (saw him live on The River tour) and no offense as we all know what we like but I can name at least 20 other Springsteen songs I'd vote for before Working On The Highway.

Morelemonpledge and yhf are making more threats than Iran's ambassador to the United Nations. But when that critical vote comes up to provide aid to Israel, they'll be in the chair voting.

Rain Man
03-08-2011, 03:55 PM
Shuttin' it down. In the heat of the obscure, we'll advance

Wicked Garden
We Are The Champions
Paradise City


And damn all but 19 of you for not voting for Working on the Highway.
