Let's do this again! We will determine what RM's TOP 100 ARTISTS are. I believe the first and only time we did this was in 2006, so it may be time for an update. RM TOP 100 ARTISTS
~~~Original Rules thread 2006
Original Results thread 2006~~~


Submit a ranked list of your top 20 artists via PM to The Argonaut so we can determine definitively what RM's top 100 artists are. You can submit a shorter list of less than 20 artists if it so pleases you.

mowbs ran the 2006 tournament and he did a very good job, so here is an amended version of his ruleset:

-Including Pearl Jam is allowed. This is a change from the 2006 rules. The band and our opinions of it are very different from what they were in 2006. Will Pearl Jam be the favorite band on a Pearl Jam board? I'm honestly not sure. Let's find out.

-If you'd like to vote for Eric Clapton, for example, then that vote will reflect Clapton as a solo artist. If you want to vote for Blind Faith or The Yardbirds or any other group he has taken part in, then one of your votes will have to be specifically for that band. That being said, you can vote for something like The Beatles and all four members individually, but it will have to occupy 5 different spots on your list. So just keep in mind that both Soundgarden and Audioslave could appear on the countdown if you'd like to vote for both.

-Again, the criteria for your list is entirely up to you. Even if an artist had their first release a month ago, you can still vote for them.

-I'm gonna ask that you rank them. Higher-ranked artists on your lists will earn more points (20 points for #1, 19 points for #2, etc). At the end, I'll share all the info about how many points each artist earned and how many total lists they appeared on.

Use this thread to ask questions. You can PM me your list whenever you are ready. Once lists start coming in, I'll set a deadline for when you need to get them in by. I'd ask that you refrain for now from posting your complete list. There'll be time for that after.

I said twenty because that's the number mowbs used when he ran it in 2006. It might be too many?

Yeah, that's cool. That can work. Maximum of 20, though. Take your time with your list, though. No rush, yet.

I have my preliminary list, Argo. But I need to sit with it for a bit. Make sure I'm locked into it, y'know?

No rush. Well, Rush is allowed if you're a big fan of Rush. But there is no rush to submit your list, which may or may include Rush. up to you

we should be made to post our list for everyone to see rather than by PM so we can be publicly ridiculed.

I'm sure I participated in this last time. I wonder what my list was then. I bet it's completely different now.

I'll absolutely post my list here once I send it off to Argo.

Unless that's against the rules or something.

This was 2006. All we had was five albums: The Blue Album - Make Believe. Not a bad run, that. All of those records are good to great.

Here's the thread where folks posted their lists back in 2006: http://archive.theskyiscrape.com/viewtopic.php?p=1517318

It's not against the rules to post your list, do what you gotta do. You don't have to post it publicly, as that will keep the element of surprise alive.
