What? Are we supposed to be sad that you don't want to vote?

No... such hostility from you, though. Its just getting too difficult, and STARLA LOST, FFS!!!

Never got over that one.

Also...

Also, I'm pissed as hell about Still Remains losing (currently) to Hunger Strike. Still Remains is a fucking awesome song. Top 5 STP. What the hell is wrong with you people? :gomez:

I have felt this way too many times in this tournament, and I don't like getting 'pissed as hell' unnecessarily. Smoke one for me, Phat...


Honestly man, I'm just joking around. No hostility intended. Also, when I said "pissed as hell" I really meant "mildly annoyed". I don't take these tournaments seriously, they're just a lot of fun and give me something new to post about every day. This thing is going to get crazy when there are 100 songs left.

I'll smoke one down for sure. ;)

It's interesting how much stock you put in the history of the band, Anders. That kind of stuff doesn't cross my mind when doing these tournaments.


It all puts it in context. Everything means something. It's that little drum sound, or the way the guitar wails or weep, perhaps a vocal performance that is so good that it couldn't be repeated, or lyrics you can identify with, or just respect as poetry. There is also that other kind of context, with memories in your life when you listened to that song, or how it makes you feel now. Maybe it's a new song for you, and you know none of its history, but you know you love it now. Or when two songs are both great, and they face each other in this tournament, two five star songs from the early to mid 90s. Songs you loved growing up. But then you hear how much that song means to the band, or something special about how they made it, or how the audience reacted when they first heard it in 1991, and somehow some of that means something to you, and it just edges a song into getting the vote.

I totally respect that you feel differently about it.

great answer

It is a good response. I'm glad those things matter to you. I like it. But those just aren't things that mean much to me in a context like this tournament. But, again, I think it's interesting that those things are so meaningful to you.

If you're thinking just grunge, then yeah. I don't think that's what stip means at all... Eric Clapton all the way, bitches!

Oh and yeah these rounds just keep getting exponentially more brutal.

And yes, Starla, Still Remains and Aneurysm should still be in this. River of Deceit too, but ya know, that had to go up against fucking Nothingman after duking it out through the whole preliminary contest somehow.
