Hello everyone and welcome to the nomination round for what I hope will be successful test of breathing life into this place. We had a slow start, but at least now we can move forward with some nominations for each category. Here is how it will work:

Anyone can nominate any band/album/artist that fits into a category. Limit yourself to no more than three nominations per category. In order for a nomination to go through to the competition, it will need at least one other person to second the nomination. You may second as many nominations as you feel are necessary. You may not second your own nominations. We might change the rules a little if things move too slow, but for now this seems fair.

When making a nomination, please bold the category and then list under neath it in plain test the bands you are nominating. When seconding a nomination, make a separate list or post including the seconding of a nomination. This will make it easier for me to separate nominations from approved nominations.

Lets see if we can get some activity going here and maybe breath a little life back into this place!

NOTE: If you feel someone has nominated a band in the wrong category, please discuss it in a separate post in the original idea thread so we can keep this place clean

I am glad my insightful nagging encouraged you to bring punk into this.

I second the following from neidnarb:

Hardcore
Band Bests
-Post-Hardcore
drive like jehu
fugazi

Album Bests
-Post-hardcore
drive like jehu, yank crime
fugazi, in on the kill taker

Punk
Band Bests
-Punk
ramones
dead kennedys

-MISC
The Clash

Album Bests
-Punk
ramones, ramones
dead kennedys, plastic surgery disasters

-MISC
the clash, london calling


I moved the clash to MISC as bands with that variety were meant to go into that category. Also you owe me a cookie cause Television didnt make any sense.
