Okay, anyone ever heard of most of these?

I've heard of all of them except Bob Dylan.

I remember playing Hush back in my rock n roll daze. We also did Deep Purples version of River Deep Mountain High. Ah the good ole days....

I have never heard of Bruce Springsteen, who the hell is he?

My first two votes go to RATM and Dio. My third could have gone to any of the others except the Dylan song. After much deep thought and strategizing, I settled on Jethro Tull.

Wow. By far the worst.

Because I'm annoyed at myself for not including this in the 'addendum' poll, this is one of the most 'rock' songs to have been made in a long time:

Power chords, driving rhythm, badass tempo changes, good lyrics; just an all around badass song. And it's not even 4 minutes long, so listen to it, assholes.

Friends - this is Rock. Nikki Sixx is one talented sumbitch.

Speeding ticket song? I can affirmatively state that it is.

Rage (duh) and locomotive breath.

It's easily Tull's best son, IMO.

Way too many Dylan songs.

Fortunately he's getting hammered.

Have any of them advanced yet?

One of them. Like a Rolling Stone. That's plenty, AFAIC.

My first two votes go to RATM and Dio. My third could have gone to any of the others except the Dylan song. After much deep thought and strategizing, I settled on Jethro Tull.Yeah, I didn't know who to select after RATM and Dio. Those two should advance without a third, IMO.

Really? I thought everyone like Locomotive Breath.

I'm not even a huge fan of Jethro Tull but the beginning of that song is pretty awesome. That's enough to move forward one stinkin' heat, IMO.

Going in, I'd only heard one song, and The Promised Land is great. So there's Vote #1.

Then I listened to the rest of them, and here are my reactions:

Rich Kid, Billy Squier - Hmm, actually pretty decent. I could vote for this. I didn't, but I was impressed.

Killing in the Name Of, Rage Against the Machine - Dang, that was pretty good. I liked that. Vote #2.

Ladies and Gentlemen, Saliva - Not bad, actually. I kind of liked it. Almost got my vote.

Hush, Deep Purple - Oh, I've heard this song before. Not bad, but nothing that would keep me on that radio station.

Locomotive Breath, Jethro Tull - Any song with a rock flute solo is worthy of consideration. Not enough 'there' there, though.

The Promised Land, Bruce Springsteen & The E-Street Band - My god, that's an awesome song. Children should be listening to that in schools as part of their educational process.

Rainbow in the dark, DIO - Made it halfway through. Loud noise. (Shaking head and looking like I smelled something bad.)

Queen Jane, Approximately, Bob Dylan - Pretty good. Not rock, but I really liked it. I'll give jenson - er, Dylan - Vote #3 as a general support vote.

This is shaping up as a tight race for 2nd and 3rd with suckage in the mix threatening to bump a tune out.

So EVERY heat has to have at least one Springsteen and Dylan song?...

It's not my fault that Springsteen has recorded more than 12.5 percent of the greatest rock and roll songs ever.

Like the fat chicks that help Average Jane stand out in the dim light of a night club, so too do Springsteen and Dylan make Dio stand tall like the Wilt Chamberlain of rock n roll.

2 Votes - Deep Purple deserves to move on.

1 Vote - flush this heat...

AND RAGE EARNS ANOTHER CONVERT!

It's too bad their lead singer was a hippy dickhead; they'd have had a much longer run if he didn't piss Tom Morello off all the time.

Glad to see Hush doing well, maybe there is hope for you people.

In an upset of mammoth proportions, The Promised Land is eliminated due to errors in voting, and the advancers are:

Killing in the Name of
Hush
Locomotive Breath
