Sinatra is rock and roll now?

This was the toughest one for me. First time I wanted to vote for one but couldn't.

Hell, if Piano Man is rock, why not Sinatra? Pft.

Very tough heat, two worthy contenders will not advance.

Ultimately I went with a personal favorite that I can't imagine I've ever clicked away from - Cheap Trick gets my #1 vote.

#2 goes to Ozzie; he's not one of my favorites as he can get grating, but this song is unquestionably badass.

#3 goes to Skynard. My apologies to Motorhead (great song in its own right) and ZZ Top (If only the whole song was as good as the first 45 seconds...); you were worthy adversaries that would've advanced through most other heats...

Steroids.

Actually, I was wondering that myself. It wasn't something that I pasted in. I must've accidentally hit two keys simultaneously as I was pasting? How odd.

That nomination may have been in jest, but I decided that it wasn't my role to make the call. I figured the Guns N Roses nominations were in jest too.

Maybe not so much the music itself, though it is pure greatness, but Sinatra's life was very much in the spirit of rock & roll.

Legendary boozing, legendary broads, fightin, associating with shady figures... the key ingredients are all there.

The Lady is a Tramp, Frank Sinatra - Not sure if this was a joke submission or not, but it's actually a pretty darn good song. However, it doesn't fit any definition of rock and roll, so I couldn't vote for it even though I liked it better than many of the others.

I Want You to Want Me, Cheap Trick - Classic fun song. I give it a #1 vote in a pretty lukewarm heat.

Children of the Grave, Black Sabbath - Couldn't really see a lot of redeeming features in this one. No.

Desolation Row, Bob Dylan - Not one of Dylan's better efforts.

Simple Man, Lynyrd Skynyrd - Seemed like a reasonable tune. I've heard better, but not bad.

Crazy Train, Ozzy Osbourne - The song itself is kind of okay, but that guitar riff is awesome and worth a #2 vote

Ace of Spades, Motorhead - I don't know if I've ever heard a Motorhead song other than this tournament. It was good enough to get my #3 vote, but probably wouldn't have done so in any other heat so far.

LaGrange, ZZTop - Fine song. Came in fourth or fifth in my review, neck and neck with Simple Man.

Votes go to "LaGrange" and "Ace of Spades." That Motorhead song has enough punk rock in it to make me feel comfortable voting for it. I did not vote for the excellent "Children of the Grave" or "Crazy Train" because they are not rock songs. I coinflipped between "Desolation Row" and "Simple Man" for the third vote.

See, this is why Rain Man drive me bonkers when it comes to music. The Boss is the end-all, be-all for him, and he can't find "redeeming features" in such a great Sabbath song. We're coming from entirely different perspectives.

How fucking stupid. Even critics who haven't been very kind to Dylan's music tend to acknowledge this as one his truly classic songs...

but never mind...proceed.

There is very little diabolus in musica in Crazy Train so I beleive it qualifies as a rock song.

Yes, but with some understanding and open-mindedness I think we can bridge our differences and - nope, just listened to the Sabbath song again. We can't bridge our differences.

Maybe part of the problem is that I have to listen to it being performed by weird people sitting in their apartment and try to imagine Dylan singing it because the Dylan Brownshirts take all of the Dylan songs off of youtube.

I actually like a lot of Dylan songs a lot. I also dislike a lot of Dylan songs a lot. His Blood on the Tracks album is top-notch from top to bottom, but then I bought Red Sky or whatever it's called and stared in horror the whole time it was playing.

Listen to 'Highway 61 Revisited' instead of those others.

Screw it, I'm not trying to convert. I'm far from the biggest Dylan fan here...

No, we can't. I just listened to seven different Springsteen songs. Each one had the keyboard player performing the same riff over and over throughout the entire song. dun-dun-dunuhn-DUN-DUN-DUNUHNUHN. dun-dun-dunuhn-DUN-DUN-DUNUHNUHN.

Perhaps we can find common ground in the musical stylings of Bob Dylan.

REO had a song, Golden Country, knocked out by Springsteen's Born To Run, AC/DC's Hell's Bells, and Cheap Trick's Dream Police in round 10.

The Lady is a Tramp, Frank Sinatra - No

I Want You to Want Me, Cheap Trick - This song edged out Simple Man and Children of the Grave for my 3rd vote. It's fun and sticks in your head in a good way.

Children of the Grave, Black Sabbath - I'm with Reaper on this Rain Man / Reaper divide. Great song. But not great enough to get my Ozzy vote in this heat.

Desolation Row, Bob Dylan - Not that bad, but it will take a pretty weak heat for me to vote for a Bob Dylan song. Dylan's songs could all benefit from a different singer, IMO.

Simple Man, Lynyrd Skynyrd - I like this song well enough, but I like other Skynyrd songs better and can't vote for them here.

Crazy Train, Ozzy Osbourne - This song is easily my 1st vote. Ozzy at his best, but I agree with Rain Man that Randy Rhodes' guitar is the star.

Ace of Spades, Motorhead - Lemmy is the Bob Dylan voice of hard rock. He ruins the song for me.

LaGrange, ZZTop - This song gets my 2nd vote. Love that guitar.

Golden Country losing to Dream Police...

Still probably my biggest annoyance of the tournament to date.

You're pretty much right on the first sentence. I'd need to see your posture and tool-making ability before making the call on the second sentence.

The Lady is a Tramp, Frank Sinatra - Cool song, but it seems out of place in this poll

I Want You to Want Me, Cheap Trick - I hate Cheap Trick

Children of the Grave, Black Sabbath - This was nominated over so many others?

Desolation Row, Bob Dylan - Meh choice from a great songwriter

Simple Man, Lynyrd Skynyrd - Good song. I should have voted for this one.

Crazy Train, Ozzy Osbourne - The song itself is kind of okay, but that guitar riff is awesome and worth a #2 vote

Ace of Spades, Motorhead - Noise

LaGrange, ZZTop - OK song. Not really my thing, but Billy Gibbons gets one of the coolest guitar tones I've ever heard.


I must have been in a bad mood earlier because I chose suckage. If I had a time machine, I'd throw a vote to Simple Man.
