Note: Contest entry period has ended

This is the main thread for UG's Battle of the Bands. You may enter your band in or discuss B.O.B here.

How to Enter:
Submit 1 song by your band (group or 1 man). Tell us the song name, the group name, the genre of the song, and a link to the song. The genres include: Rock, Blues, Metal, and Jazz. If for some reason your song does not fit into one of the above genres, please contact me and I will give you some assistance. You have about 2 weeks to enter, which would be August 24th. Please submit your songs using the following form:

Band Name
Song Name
Genre
Link
Additional Comments

How it Works:
There is a 2 week entry period. This may seem like a long time, but there are probably a lot of people on UG who only get on once every month at the most. We want to try to include everybody. After those 2 weeks are over, our judges decide on who will win from each genre. These judges should be fair. If you think a judge is being unfair, just send me a PM and I will see to the issue. Next we have a band vs. band open poll system. Each genre goes up against eachother and the public votes. After there are 2 genres left, the 2 losers and 2 winners battle eachother. The winner from each will battle eachother and that winner is UG's Battle of the Bands Champion.

The Judges (as of now):
?shorter_rocker (myself)
?insideac

?That_Pink_Queen

I'd enter this but if natural(not fruityloops) drums are required I think I'm screwed. What are the requirements to enter?

Also what would the judges be basing their decisions on? originality, techincal ability etc...?

EDIT: I've been listening to some of the entries and ...I have no chance...

There aren't really any requirements... You just need a song, anything original. I might run a battle of the bands that can do cover songs as well in the future, but just something original at the moment.

The judging is based on originality, some ability, how interesting the music is

Well thanks....im lookin forward to this online battle thing...has it been done before on here because if it hasn't i'm surprised that no one thought of it until now...its a pretty cool idea, especially just to get different bands exposure...

You're a mod. Nice of you to ask, but guess what... You're officailly a judge just because you are a mod.

So there!
#26
Ooo, nice. I guess being a judge came with the deal.

I'm assuming that if I enter something, I can't judge?

w00t modship.

I don't see any reason why you can't do both... as long as you're fair about, I haven't any problem with it at all.

I'm certain that you would be... so go for it.

^^ Well I had music I could do but decided not so, figured people would find it unfair


As long as your honest about it... I don't have any problem with it.

If you really wanted to make it "fair", you could make it where you can vote for any band other than your own... no matter if your's is the best or not. You have to pick some other band.

Besides, I can look behind the scenes here (one of the advantages of being an SMod) and see who you did vote for... and I could cancel out the vote... if you decide not to try it "my way".

So... go for it and have a little fun!
#34
Question : Will the songs be critted by the quality , melody or both ?
is a song that includes vocals more prone to getting votes than a song that doesnt have vocals yet ?
If all the above are in effect , i dont care , I 'm still in the competition with the same song.. Just asking out of curiosity.

^Wouldn't the fact that it's being judged suggest that we don't need a poll?

It is judges at first, then an open poll system
