    Shane:

    As far as "Disc One," by Barenaked Ladies, I'd consider greatest hits albums to be reissues, so they probably ought to be excluded. You get another nomination.

    You should have one of the mods to change the thread title to "Tournament" rather than "poll"

    I mean c'mon, this is the polls section. Nobody is going to open a poll thread [​IMG]
