POLL - The WEAKEST LINK of AMERICAN BANDS - (WEST) 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. WEST 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.

The Beach Boys
Van Halen
The Doors
Eagles - Eliminated Round 1
Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young
Creedence Clearwater Revival
Sly & the Family Stone - Eliminated Round 1
Metallica
Guns N' Roses
Grateful Dead

    CSNY is getting hammered because Nash and Young aren't American??
    That must be it.

    I can't believe some of the voting. How did the Dead make it out of Round 1? Shiite!
    It's a hopeless situation...

    I will admit a lot of their output is endless noodling, but American Beauty and Workingman's Dead garner them huge respect.  At least give them a listen if you haven't already.
