POLL - The WEAKEST LINK of AMERICAN BANDS - (NORTH) ROUND 2

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. 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 3.

Soundgarden
Nirvana
Foo Fighters
Alice in Chains
Pixies - Eliminated Round 1
Cheap Trick
Heart
The Smashing Pumpkins
Stone Temple Pilots
Chicago - Eliminated Round 1

    It is surprising but there was some stiff competition from far more popular bands.

    Pixies were the best band on the original list. Competition from more popular bands yes, but certainly not better bands.

    That was my point. This is a popularity contest. I’m not in total agreement they are the best band in this list, but they deserved a better fate.

    Definitely the weakest of the for corners of the compass.

    I had hoped that we were more refined and not base our votes on popularity. I know, I know, I was fooling myself with such high hopes. Bunch of dolts!

    😂
    The Pixies influence on most of the bands on this list cannot be understated. Dave Grohl was worried Smells Like Teen Spirit sounded too much like the Pixies after they recorded it, for instance.

    Easy choice for me!

    I'd vote Foos, but I actually dislike Cheap Trick more.

    As for the Pixies, mad respect, but this isn't about influence, it's about output, whether we like some of the output or not.
    It's a hopeless situation...
