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

MedozKMedozK TennesseePosts: 8,729
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. EAST 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.

The Ramones
Kiss
Aerosmith
Bon Jovi
Talking Heads
Steely Dan
Journey
Parliament/Funkadelic
The Velvet Underground
The Stooges

    I thought Journey was from San Francisco.

    NVM - I just saw that you may not have kept them all in their respective regions.

    It was either Bon Jovi or Kiss for me. 

    Both may be gone in the First Round, anyway?

    Yea, I tried. But the west coast has so many bands. Basically impossible to limit that to ten. So had to have some bands in other regions

    Parliament all the way!  (First half of Aerosmith was something I loved.  Back half makes me puke)
    The love he receives is the love that is saved

    They are.  I saw them at Winterland in '74 when they were a fairly unknown "local" band.  Early hair band.  I didn't hate them but Link Wray was so much more cool!

    People voring for kiss can go to hell. 

    Take a listen to their first three albums (KISS/Hotter than Hell/Dressed to Kill) and Unmasked. Better than anything Pearl Jam recorded in the 70s. I tell you that much.

    Easy big guy, it's just a poll!  I will vote for Kiss eventually as well.  But then, I've already been to hell.  It's over-rated.

    If Gene Simmons were the best bass player on earth I would still not care for Kiss, partly because I'm not into their shtick, and hugely because of who and what Gene Simmons.  I will try to be gentlemanly and say no more.
