    Add Queensryche because they have the greatest singer in the business and they totally ROCK. Subtract Dream Theater because they plain and simple S.U.C.K.
    Even if Manning has to throw the ball underhand, the Broncos believe they have a better quarterback than the one who beat the Steelers in the playoffs last season.

          dude dream theater is way better then queensryche. and Joh Pertrucci is one of the most underated guitarists in the business IMO. although this is a good idea i don't think it'll work because of the different tastes in music. like my championship would be between Black Sabbath and Judas priest just because of what they did for metal basically inventing it. without them no metal bands period.

              It would be tough to pick 64...but others to consider are:

              Social Distortion
              T-Rex
              Iggy/Stooges
              Thin Lizzy
              Motorhead
              Alice Cooper
              Ronnie James Dio
              Marilyn Manson
              ZZ Top

                Dream Theater can't hold a candle for the mighty Ryche. YES D.T. are very talented musicians but that does not make them a good BAND. We BOTH know that D.T. will never be as good a BAND as the RYCHE.
                You want to get an AWESOME cd ? Go get yourself a copy of Operation Mindcrime 2

                    Yes


                    I have an idea on how we can conduct this tournement.

                    We could make it a Survivor type thing.

                    We could have 64 bands (or more, doesn't matter)

                    Each poster could 10 votes for 1 post. The poster will only get to vote once and they can only vote for 1 band once.

                    Every band that accumilates 5 votes, gets eliminated from the tourney.

                    The last band remaining is considered the greatest band of them all!

                    What do you think?

                        How about doing an elimination deal like the football team thread....?
