POLL - The WEAKEST LINK of AMERICAN BANDS - (NORTH) ROUND 1

MedozKMedozK TennesseePosts: 8,727
Ok, with the new 'WEAKEST LINK' I will be staying with music and bands. However this time we will debate the greatest American Band.

Now since there are so many that limiting it to 10 would only cause chaos and confusion. I have decided to spread this 'Weakest Link' out into 4 different Polls. These polls will be identified tournament style as East, South, West, and North. I have tried to keep some cohesion with the band and geographic poll they are placed in, but couldn't do it for all. These polls WILL be occurring at the same time, so you will need to place votes in all 4 polls for each round. I did this so it wouldn't take so long to complete.

Each of the 4 polls will be narrowed down to the final 2, then I will take the 2 from each poll and make a Championship poll with 8 bands.

Alright, so here go. Lets determine the GREATEST AMERICAN BAND. NORTH REGION

You are going to pick the band that you think is the "Weakest Link" after 2 days I remove the two (2) bands with the most votes. We will then move on to Round 2.

Soundgarden
Nirvana
Foo Fighters
Alice in Chains
Pixies
Cheap Trick
Heart
The Smashing Pumpkins
Stone Temple Pilots
Chicago

    Did you leave out Pearl Jam because you‘d expect them to win or because you don’t wanna see them not winning?

    This one will be difficult. Cheap Trick just never resonated with me. The Replacements ate bands like theirs for brekkie!

    No Pearl Jam?

    By the way, MedozK , terrifically cool quadrosonic polls!

    Speaking of north, really excited about the weakest link of Canadian bands @MedozK. Would be interested in the names on your list.

    Hmm, would have to do some research for that one.

    A buddy got me to listen to Chicago II and now I really love it - couldn't stand this band before. I still haven't listened to anything past II.

    No kidding.  Pixies beat out by Heart, Stone Temple, Soundgarden, and Alice in Chains?  Y'all are leaving me scratching my head.
