80's band survivor

Discussion in 'Miscellaneous [BG]' started by Gunnar Þór, Aug 14, 2002.


  1. All right, next decade please. Same rules as in the last round and all that. I tried to pick bands that were prominant in the 80's but since the bands were chosen by me alone this selection is of course incredibly unfair.

    Now, here are our candidates:

    Bruce Springsteen
    Depeche Mode
    Duran Duran
    Guns n' Roses
    Leonard Cohen
    Metallica
    R.E.M.
    Stevie Ray Vaughan
    The Police
    U2

    Round one has started, I'll begin by voting for The Police.

    Stevie Ray!

    I developed a gag reflex for his music after playing "Pride and Joy" countless times in a bar band. Get 'im offa there.

    Metallica for their propensity for comedy metal.

    I'm not a fan.

    Last time, I didn't get to the '70s version in time to move it to Miscellaneous, as it is music-related.

    I'm voting for the one kick out, right? Then I gotta say Metallica.
     
  11. Whats the point? And what are the rules?

    -for those of us not familar with the last round ...
