    I made my picks. I hope everyone does too.

    I made my picks too. Some were easy (James Brown over Linkin Park) but there were tough choices (my picks bold based on what I would rather listen to at the moment):

    CSNY vs. Buffalo Springfield
    Allman Brothers vs. White Stripes
    R.E.M. vs.[Velvet Underground[/b]
    Pearl Jam vs. Grand Funk
    Byrds vs. Soundgarden
    Doobie Brothers vs. KISS

    if everyone had my taste, the eventual top 4 would be:

    (Gold) Jefferson Airplane
    (Silver) Doors
    (bronze) Beach Boys
    (4th) The Steve Miller Band

    which is surpising because if you gave me a list of 64 bands, it would have come out different.

    There are many American bands I like that wouldn't make the cut because they only had one good album, ie., Television and the Modern Lovers but I would have added to the list Love because they had as many good albums as several bands on the list (they had more albums than Buffalo Springfield, Nirvana, and Soundgarden, all of whom I voted for.

    I voted. Some of those categories were totally obvious like...

    The Ramones vs Funk Bros.
    Guns N' Roses vs Creed
    Metallica vs No Doubt
    Nirvana vs Spoonful
    James Brown vs Linkin Park

    However, I was quite torn on Red Hot Chili Peppers vs Sublime, as I really like both bands a lot. I voted Sublime just because they get stuck in my head more.

    Thanks for posting! This is a really nice little competition.

    I agree some were no brainers to me but I had to really sit down and try and figure out which has really contributed to the music world. I love Linkin park way more than James Brown but had to vote for him due to his contribution to music as a whole.

    The first round I believe is over now and the second should begin soon.

    I missed out on the first round but I voted in the second round.

    Most of the ones that made it through the first round were one that I would have voted for. There were only 3 that didn't make it that I would have voted for.

    Here are the three that I would have voted for:

    Bon Jovi over Dave Mathews Band
    Live over Grateful Dead
    Prince & the Revolution over Steve Miller Band

    I would agree with actually all of those pics so far. It's going to get tight in the next round.

    Ok I voted. (It's getting harder, I see Jefferson Airplane and Steve Miller are out).

    My final four would now be:

    1. Beach Boys
    2. Doors
    3. CSNY
    4. Springsteen

    based on number of songs/lps I like.

    I voted for the Eagles and the Doors, and I'll vote for the Doors in the finals.

    The finals are set now. I was suprised that one of the bands made it to the finals although they are still a great band. You can vote now for your favorite of the two. I voted for the "Eagles" since they are my favorite band anyway. I have hoped that they would win since this thing started.

    I voted for CCR because I like more of their songs.
