DON'T MAKE A THREAD LIKE THIS WITHOUT AN "OTHER" OPTION!

Actually, better idea. Don't make threads like this at all. They're retarded.

I'm hearing a steady *thump thump* from the people above me and I need some porno grooves to play on my bass to give them some background music. Any ideas?

I voted Pink Floyd. Couldn't vote for them in the other thread so atleast they were included here. But I still pay my respects to most of those other bands listed.

I hate how everyone has to reply "Where's [insert semi-popular band]?", as if they're unable to comprehend that with limited options for making polls, that leaves the poll maker unable to put a perfect list of every british band.

And if you guys really want to know where [insert semi-popular band] is, it sure as hell isn't in the poll.

The London Symphony Orchestra.

I'd disagree with you on that, seeing as how I'm fairly sure the London Symphony Orchestra doesn't write their own stuff, whereas the bands listed above all did/do original material... and most of it is quite great stuff. Now I'm not saying that LSO doesn't play great stuff, I'm just saying as far as creativity and originality are concerned, the bands in the poll surpass them...

How can you possibly justify this not being a stupid thread?

You only have TEN options? I'm sorry, but that's ridiculous. I will guarantee you that this site has a few users who don't like any of those bands. Hell, you missed some really great British musicians. You missed Mika, Genesis, Elton John, Phil Collins, Rick Astley, Jethro Tull, Muse, The Darkness, Oasis, Manic Street Preachers, and The Sex Pistols among many others (I don't necessarily like all of the musicians listed, but they all have my utmost respect as talented musicians).

But I try to judge these type of questions on a more objective level. Technique, virtuosity and skill are much easier to measure than creativitity. Plus, a band is defined basically as a musical ensemble of two or more players, not creativity.

People aren't saying to put an "other" option. They are saying one band should be put up there, without giving a sh*t about the rest of the british bands. I am referring to the people who post that only one more band should apparently be added, not the people who say an "other" option should be added.

No offense man, but I don't think you've met every member of each of the bands on the poll, so you can't really tell how technical they can get. Not everyone puts their most complicated licks in their playing.

Yes, well, in those areas I suppose LSO has more talent... but how bout next time we be a little bit clearer, mmmkay, TS?

whats the point in putting other..people will just state the name of the band on their post anyway
#28
^ Yeah? So then WHAT THE FUCK are they supposed to vote for?! Certainly if I don't think that one of those bands are the best British band, I will not want to vote for them?

I see. Alright, I misunderstood you.

Those people are morons, but the threadstarter is a moron too, for not putting up an other option.

This thread isn't even in the right forum

Can't decide between Iron Maiden, The Beatles, Pink Floyd, and Queen

EDIT: Voted for Pink Floyd.
I'll never be able to watch my Iron Maiden poster in the eyes again .

In this case, I am forced to judge on what I have seen, and the London Symphony Orchestra has displayed the highest degree of virtuosity to me if I do say so myself.
