Impact's Battle of the Bands

The idea is, everyone nominates a certain number of bands to go through the the voting stages. Each band is pitted against another band (completely randomly) and everyone votes on the one they prefer. The winner from that round progresses to the next, until we have our winner.

I'd iron out the details a little more, but to see how many bands each person nominates, i'd first have to gauge interest. So reply if you're interested, and feel free to make any suggestions.

I've actually been thinking of doing this exact same thing, but for something other than music. I probably wouldn't participate much in this since my taste in music is a lot different than most other people here.

That sounds like an interesting exercise. I would definitely like to join in.

Did you by chance get the idea from The Social Network?

Count me in. Assuming it's any band of our choice?

While I agree with Bob, count me OUT.

While I'm curious that Tucker actually watched that movie, colour me CONFUSED.

@ Bliss, yes, she was briefly in chat and made mention it would be any band, any genre vs. one another winner moves on. Round robin type thing I guess.

I'm definitely interested, but I believe when we do have this thing up and running, but I believe that if you haven't heard of the two bands that are going head to head, then you shouldn't be able to vote.

That's exactly why I want you to participate. I don't want it to be me telling everyone what music I like...we already know that. I want to find the favourite of all GFers. Anyway, I know you're a Pink Floyd fan, and i'm pretty sure they would beat out any of my favourite bands if they went up against each other.

I like Babe's suggestion. If you haven't heard of the band, don't vote. Although, I could post videos of each bands most known song (might need some help on that one) and the person could listen to each and vote for whichever they prefer.

@Tucker. Although I have watched The Social Network, I got the idea from another forum i'm a member at. They do it a little different though, only one band against another. No big one to determine an overall winner.

I disagree. If anything, when the voting comes to pass, there should be a couple examples of each band provided. Then voters can listen to both sets and make a decision which one is better in their opinion. It would be up to the person nominating that band to pick which songs best present the bands capabilities


Oh and I'd definitely participate.
