    This list is as ok as any.



    Cruds, not sure if you are planning to make the competition the same as the band one a few years ago, but I think it would be cool to make a 32 song bracket. That way you could set up a poll for each one with youtube clips of both songs. Just a suggestion, do whatever the hell ya want. :)

    Also, I suggest limiting one song per band. Makes it a lot more difficult to pick which song. You could have a "play-in" game to make the tournament with the two best Pink Floyd songs, two best beatles songs, etc...


    (I have watched too much march madness today, bracket fever)

    We can do brackets..
    Not sure "all time classics" is the same as anthems though. I wouldn't consider Stairway to Heaven an anthem, while I would consider a song like Born To be Wild or We Will Rock You...
    I guess he need to define what an anthem is...

    The more I think here, Rush should have some anthems included.

    Bastille Day, Working Man, Spirit of Radio, etc
