This got me thinking though, since we don't have football, and there is nothing going on in the contest crib forum, would it be a fun diversion to do a Huskerboard tournament of favorite musical acts? Everyone nominates whoever they want and we dump them into a bracket then have voting threads all season long?

 

Inspired by JJ's thread where some of us struggled to name our favorite songs: 

 

Let's do something fun other than asinine political arguments and whining about no football. Nominate a few of your favorite bands or musical artists in this thread, and I can create a tournament in which Huskerboard votes to name the board's favorite band. 

 

Everyone can nominate up to 4 artists, and I'll create a bracket after we have plenty of candidates so we can start the voting process. Any genre, any time period, whoever you love!

And I thought ten songs was tough...nominate only 4? My initial list had 30+, but here goes.

 

AC/DC

Rolling Stones

Rush

Lynyrd Skynyrd


Still a whole bunch of low hanging fruit to nominate.

One suggestion, maybe bracket them by style or place of origination or something. Like;

English Invasion

North American

Metal/Hard Rock

Hodgepodge/Other

Those are good ideas, I hadn't thought about how to arrange the bracket.

 

And yeah, 4 bands is tough but I didn't want to deal with hundreds of bands. If this thread moves slow feel free to add more.

I just thought it was time to start the trash talking. Too many don't realize music is extremely subjective and what some may love, others may hate. But, if you don't like good music...:P:lol:
