PostSubject: World's Worst Band Tournament III -NOMINATION PHASE-   Wed Mar 25, 2009 11:54 am

Some of you have been through this before, some of you haven't.
It's a simple process, really.
Everyone nominates as many bands as they like for World's Worst Band. After I tally the votes and see how many bands we're working with (hopefully 64 or 128), I'll determine the number of rounds and make matchups for you to vote on. I'll try a poll format, but if that doesn't work, we'll work off of replies. At the end of the tournament, a winner will be crowned.

So, here's the detailed rundown for the Nomination process.

STEP ONE: Register a name here on the forum. Yes, I am hosting this tournament in order to drum up a little more activity on the forum in order to draw in a few more participants in August Primate. But whether you choose to write here or not, you'll need a name to vote in the tournament.

STEP TWO: Reply to this topic with the names of as many TERRIBLE bands as you can think of. You can name just a few, or you can name several hundred. More is More.
You can reply again and again if you think of more bands later on. I'm going to let the nominations carry on for awhile, so that we get a good sampling of the very worst stuff out there.
This is all subjective, so just name bands. You don't need to defend you choice, or a band that someone else named. The votes are what is going to count, in later stages, not your arguments here.
If you see someone has already named a band that you wanted to name, NAME THEM ANYWAY. This is important, because this is how I will rank bands in the brackets, and also how I will eliminate bands from the list if we have more than necessary.
For example, If Slipknot received the most votes at 20 nominations, and Aerosmith received the second most at 17, Slipknot would be seeded first, and Aerosmith second. All this data will be made available at the end of Nomination.
Also, say we nominate 132 bands. We'll only need 128, so that means 4 bands will need to be cut. I will cut the 4 bands with the lowest amount of nominations. In the event of a tie (say 9 bands all have the lowest amount of nominations), I will eliminate based on personal preference because I say so.

And those are the only rules for this stage. Feel comfortable to proceed? No? Read them again.
...
No. You just scanned through that time. Really read it.
...
Ok, better. So what are you waiting for? Nominate some crap!

Forgive me if there are any repeats, Also I hope its alright to include some Hip Hop/Rap acts:

Coldplay - circus-jacket-wearing-stupid-child-naming-song-stealing-teddy bear.

Daughtry (how pompous to name a band after yourself)

Linkin Park

Barenaked Ladies (then and now)

Dave Matthews Band (every kid in my town was tailgating at their concerts with a stupid hemp necklace dangling from their neck while wearing sandals)

DogStar (Keanu Reeves' band)

That Jared Leto Band (wouldn't it be great if Edward Norton actually did destroy his face?)

40 Odd Foot Grunts (Russel Crowe's piece of candy)

Plain White T's

Lil' Wayne (Scientifically proven to lower your IQ)

My Chemical Romance (i have never heard one of their songs, this is purely an aesthetic choice)

U2 - Since when did being in a band require telling me about starving Africans while wearing a $3,000 Leather Jacket?

Jonas Brothers

Flo Rida

The Fray - What soft rock garbage. It's something that should only be heard playing softly while waiting to get your family portrait at a K-Mart.

Haha, yeah. I got to custom edit the swear filter, so I spent a whole afternoon thinking of every curse I could, and then replacing them with random words. Most forums will just use [censored] or something, but I really wanted to confuse people as much as possible.

i make a move to change it to the most OVERRATED band.

the reason is two-fold: often, the greater variation comes from when people are asked about their opinion of the perceived greatness of a band; instead of us naming all the bands that EVERYONE hates. (Ex. I think Dark Side of the Moon is pedestrian at best, but many would defend it) The result? Awesome controversy and conversation.....even after the third time around.

Plus, we all know Creed is the worst band ever.

If you veto this, i'll comply.


PS : I love the idea for this site as much as a I love Coal.

PPS: Did you really like my comic book idea of the character with the deleterious powers, or was Tris "teddy bearing" with me??

xoxo

You've got a real point about the contest. Damn. I wish I had started with that, but I feel there are too many good nominations on this one, and I'd love to see how it pans out. I will, however, start ANOTHER tournament for Most Overrated, because it's too good an idea to pass up.

P.S. - I wouldn't 'teddy bear' with you, man. I've been waiting for you to come out swinging with that Power Hour writing like COAL.

Stop saying things like this. You're embarrassing me, lol.
They're not good. They never were good, even when that type of music was popular. I mean, let's be serious for a second...
Think about it. Kottonmouth Kings?!
Here's their discography...
1998: Royal Highness
1999: Hidden Stash
2000: High Society
2002: Rollin' Stoned
2004: Fire It Up
2005: Kottonmouth Kings
2006: Koast II Koast
2007: Cloud Nine
2008: The Green Album
2009: Hidden Stash IV
Each of these annual artistic expressions has 20-25 songs on it, and I won't even begin to list the inane names here.
Before you begin arguing, I understand that this is all coming from a guy who loves Mindless Self Indulgence. The important distinction is that MSI's considerable corniness is facetious in nature, and Kottonmouth Kings are all too literal.

You didn't catch Steel Dragon? or maybe you did and you just really do love them in all their fictional Marc Walberg-y glory.

Oh so I have a few more ones to add, after reading others I agree so I need to second some noms as well as add what I think are some originals:

COLDPLAY
KOTTON MOUTH KINGS... i have never actually heard them but after reading the titles of their albums, I would have to agree they suck.
DAVE MATTHEWS BAND
SOULJABOY omg the worst
whos that one band that sang that song that everyone liked and he wasnt really a band he was a guy but the name sounded like it was a band or was it vice versa? They toured with weezer once and I was forced to see him/them whatever. Omg that is the worst description, but I'm hoping someone can get it. They toured with Weezer in 02 or 03 I believe. I saw them/him in Minnesota... ok th esong was SCREAMING INFIDELITITES OR SOMETHING ABOUT YOUR HAIR... they Are the worst! is it a dude or a band? ok i will google those lyrics and see what i find... omg DASHBOARD CONFESSIONAL THATS IT THEY/HIM SUCK!
