View Full Version : Music Rock N Poll: Round 2, Heat 1


Rain Man
03-22-2011, 03:51 PM
And now, ladies and gentlemen, the excreted solid waste gets real.

On the first-round heats, we ended up with 101 songs moving on. In order to round out the field to an even multiple of 8, I took the three fourth-place songs with the narrowest margin of loss, and they will squeak into Round 2. Those three songs are:

Hotel California, The Eagles
Seven Nation Army, The White Stripes
Johnny B. Goode, Chuck Berry

Round 2 will have 13 heats of 8 songs each. Same rules apply as in Round 1. All heat placements are random with no conspiracies afoot.

As a bit of trivia, these performers are entering the second round, bringing the number of songs shown:

AC/DC 6
Guns N Roses 6
the Beatles 5
Aerosmith 3
Boston 3
Led Zeppelin 3
Metallica 3
Pink Floyd 3
Queen 3
Rolling Stones 3
The Who 3
Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers 3
Bruce Springsteen & The E-Street Band 2
Creedence Clearwater Revival 2
Deep Purple 2
Elton John 2
Jimi Hendrix 2
Kansas 2
Lynyrd Skynyrd 2
Neil Young 2
Nirvana 2
The Doors 2
Alice in Chains 1
Beach Boys 1
Bill Haley 1
Billy Joel 1
Black Sabbath 1
Bob Dylan 1
Bob Seger 1
Cheap Trick 1
Chuck Berry 1
Derek and the Dominoes 1
Don McLean 1
Dusty Springfield 1
Eagles 1
Eric Clapton 1
Jerry Lee Lewis 1
Jethro Tull 1
Joan Jett and the Blackhearts 1
Joe Walsh 1
Kiss 1
Meat Loaf 1
Motley Crue 1
Nazareth 1
Ozzy Osbourne* 1
Paul McCartney 1
Pearl Jam 1
Rage Against the Machine 1
REM 1
Rush 1
Smashing Pumpkins 1
Stone Temple Pilots 1
Ted Nugent 1
The Clash 1
The Cult 1
The Guess Who 1
The Troggs 1
The White Stripes 1
U2 1
Van Halen 1
Warren Zevon 1
ZZTop 1


And now we move on, and may God have mercy upon your rock-loving souls as you make the difficult decisions that will be required of you.

Dylan and Springsteen get 50 nominations each and only get three songs through combined. That's too bad.

Rain Man
03-22-2011, 03:54 PM
Springsteen is far and away the most underrepresented artist here. I figured at least 10 of his would get through.

Rain Man
03-22-2011, 03:59 PM
For this round, I'm going to switch to a ranking system, listing my preferences in descending order. Here are mine:

American Pie, Don McLean - Easy #1 vote here. And yes, it's rock and roll. It even includes the term in the lyrics.

Great Balls O Fire, Jerry Lee Lewis - #2 vote for me. It's a classic.

It's a Long way to the Top, AC/DC - #3 vote. As much as I make fun of the AC/DC consortium, this really is the third-best song in the heat. I have to be honest.

We Are the Champions, Queen - I like this song, but it's not my favorite Queen song and it's not rockin' enough to get my vote in the second round.

Another Brick in the Wall, Pink Floyd - See above. It's a fine song, but doesn't make the cut.

Seven Nation Army, The White Stripes - Best of the three laggards in this heat.

Welcome to the Jungle, Guns N Roses - It beats Metallica, and that's the best I can say in this heat.

Master of Puppets, Metallica - Noise.

I'm not voting for "Master of Puppets" because it isn't a rock song. But Rain Man -- c'mon, guy. Noise? It's totally fine to not like metal, but calling that song "noise" is a terribly unfair assessment. It's easily the most complex song in the heat. That song is tremendously musically accomplished. If you can't hear the classical music aspect of metal music shining through loud and clear on "Master of Puppets" then you really aren't listening to the best of your ability to.

Glad you asked. Depending on if we have any ties or anything, we'll bring in the fourth place song(s) with the narrowest margin of defeat to fill in the final heat of eight. The odds are that we'll only need one song to get to 40 unless somehow a suckage cutoff happens or we end up with multiple ties for the third place spot.

I like GnR's covers better than their original songs.

GNR had there own brash style creating IMO the single greatest rock n roll album of all time, Appitite For Distruction. They also gave tribute to the music that influenced them and gave homage with the Spahgetti Incident.

It's unfortunate that the band "decertified" and went in differant directions.

I do like the new GNR, but it's not the same as the original cast. Just not the same. Sad.

Rock in this poll apparently means any non-rap song, non-country song. Rock is a very wide open genre of music, though.

The rule is that if it's been in the game Rock Band or if it's played by Don McLean, it's rock and therefore eligible for the competition. And if it's in the catalogue of Bruce Springsteen, Bob Dylan, or Guns n Roses, it's automatically in the competition.

How is metal or Pink Floyd not rock and roll? :BS:

From wiki:

Heavy metal (often referred to simply as metal) is a genre of rock music that developed in the late 1960s and early 1970s, largely in the United Kingdom and the United States.

Pink Floyd were an English rock band who achieved worldwide success with their psychedelic and progressive rock music.


The term "rock and roll" now has at least two different meanings, both in common usage. The American Heritage Dictionary and the Merriam-Webster Dictionary both define rock and roll as synonymous with rock music.

How is metal or Pink Floyd not rock and roll? :BS:

From wiki:

Heavy metal (often referred to simply as metal) is a genre of rock music that developed in the late 1960s and early 1970s, largely in the United Kingdom and the United States.

Pink Floyd were an English rock band who achieved worldwide success with their psychedelic and progressive rock music.


The term "rock and roll" now has at least two different meanings, both in common usage. The American Heritage Dictionary and the Merriam-Webster Dictionary both define rock and roll as synonymous with rock music.
The author of the wikipedia page is wrong w/r/t metal. It uses rock instrumentation, and has an undeniable rock influence in its composition, but sounds entirely different.

I am disagreeing.

Do people just consider rock music to be a subgenre of Blues? No, because Rock does different things than the Blues does, musically speaking. Likewise, Metal is more than an offshoot of its most apparent influence. People think that metal is just really fast or heavy rock music, and they think this because they are ignorant about music. People give no consideration to metal's use of certain scales, modes, time signatures, etc. that aren't found in rock music. People don't stop and consider what they listen to enough.

You can't have metal without its rock influences, this much is very true, but you also can't have metal without its equal influences of jazz and classical. It isn't hard to suss out those influences, either. It's readily apparent, all you have to do is listen.

GnR almost singlehandedly demolished much of the american rock scene & reinvented it. Other bands immediately began ditching their goofy costumes for a more 'street' look & started dirtying up their sound/style when GnR appeared.

Outside of the thrash scene, they were the standard bearers for musical/personal authenticity, until Nirvana broke out several years later.

I can't give them that much credit. First of all, I wouldn't off-handedly dismiss the thrash scene like that in order to give GnR "almost singlehandedly" level credit. Second, you make it sound like Nirvana was an afterthought. I think both Thrash and Nirvana (and it's grunge colleagues) deserve more credit than GnR for the changes in hard rock in the late 80s, early 90s. Besides, GnR mostly sucks. :p

I think I'd have liked Guns N Roses better as a cover band, but I'm exaggerating my lack of enthusiasm for them overall a little bit. They've got some decent rock songs.

Also Rain Man, Bob Dylan was a huge influence on GnRs music & they paid tribute to the man Bob Dylan recreating this gem of a song. Allowing younger generations to appreciate good song writing. You should look up Izzy Stradlin and the ju ju hounds, see if that is appealing to your likeing. Izzy Stradlin left GnR and moved back to london. I think you would like that it's not hard rock but it is definently Bob Dylan genre.

Drwbllz called it, GnR destroyed the Hollywood rock scene, one hair band after another went defunct. The record companies started signing bands that played dirty, blues based rock & dressed'em up like street urchins/pirates, left & right. Its hard to come up with names though, most quickly fell to the wayside because they werent genuine, or just plain sucked & the fans knew it.

Your second paragraph hits a good point, seems like every other guitarist started going to Les Pauls & Marshalls. Just another tell of GnR's influence.

Marketing labels evolve over time. Internationally, the new genre of music that developed out of rock, jazz and classical sort of took over the name 'heavy metal.' (which, iirc, was first used by a journalist in a story about Blue Cheer.) I suppose the genre of music that is known to people that know what music is as "metal" could be called a different name. But there'd be a tough time trying to change it.

I know this is a funny post, but I want to use it to make a serious point:

I'm a big fan of rock music, too. I want the actual, real distinctions between metal and rock to be recognized not just for the sake of metal but also for the sake of rock. It's unfair to the rock bands that are pushing the extents and boundaries of that genre if metal bands are rock bands too. It's unfair to bands like Tool or Radiohead, who are doing wonderfully creative things in the rock genre.

IMO, Tiny Dancer is the better song. It's not even close.

The shock value has worn off of your posts. I bet you cried when you heard the Princess Diana version of Candles in the Wind, didn't you. :p

I wasn't going for shock value. I think Metallica is a joke. The live Ben Folds version of Tiny Dancer is really cool. It's not a rocker, but I think it's the better song.

I didn't say it's not a rock song. I'm poking fun at your choice of Tiny Dancer over Master of Puppets in a greatest rock song of all time poll.

+1

That's precious.

Rainman, I have an idea.

I propose a Loser's Bracket. That way songs that were unfairly matched up have a shot at coming back in this thing. I think you could take the top three losers from ever heat and pit them together. Then against the top losers in round two. I could help if you'd apporve it and don't want to fuck with it, kevin.

Wouldn't it be more foolproof if we just ran a poll where "Signs" was the only option?

You're one of those thinker types, aren't you?
