Replacement Nominations:

This is the number of performers that each past or present participant can nominate to get to the current limit of 50 nominations. Each user can nominate as many eligible performers up to 50 as they'd like. It's not required to have 50 nominations. It's not required to nominate performers to vote in the project, however only performers with the required number of nominations or more are eligible for the voting / ranking portion of the project, so the best way to have your opinions effect the process is to nominate as many eligible performers as you can. The required number of nominations is subject to change due to new nominations, so previously nominated performers aren't guaranteed to be nominated in future rounds.

Well, there is my ballot. Once again, I hope no fellow poster has any concerns over this ballot. I do wonder when we are going to seriously include the 2028 inductees. I trust none here would want to have the newer inductees for only #295-301 yet again.

Any worth I may have had for the Baseball Hall of Fame has been lost,

Replacement Nominations:

This is the number of performers that each past or present participant can nominate to get to the current limit of 50 nominations. Each user can nominate as many eligible performers up to 50 as they'd like. It's not required to have 50 nominations. It's not required to nominate performers to vote in the project, however only performers with the required number of nominations or more are eligible for the voting / ranking portion of the project, so the best way to have your opinions effect the process is to nominate as many eligible performers as you can. The required number of nominations is subject to change due to new nominations, so previously nominated performers aren't guaranteed to be nominated in future rounds.

I'd like to request that voters do their best to keep up with their replacement nominations. Last round we had 12 voters, 6 of whom have used all 50 of their nominations.

Last round was also notable because the threshold for nomination slipped from 6 nominations to 5 and 11 of the 15 finalists were artists eligible for the first time. While we're still ranking artists that have been eligible for multiple rounds (all nominees from the first five rounds have now been ranked), it seems clear that we need some new blood.

The album project started to stall towards the middle because there weren't enough replacement nominations. Since the middle hundred artists are (in my opinion) the most interesting because we mostly agree on the best artists and the worst artists, I'd like to see more voters update their nominations so we can get the most accurate nominees.

If we get to the point where 4 nominations is enough to advance to the rankings, the number of nominations each voter will be allowed will be expanded to 75.

Darren, I had definitely noticed the same thing. When the album project got down to only 3 people putting in replacement noms the quality suffered big time. We were forced to vote for inferior albums. I think the same thing happened this round here, and agree completely - participating voters, get some nominations in!

For the Record:

I understand where you are coming from, to a degree. However, I must ask one basic question.

What if you're happy withthe way things have been going, w/out all the added nominations?

One reason I haven't felt any screaming pangs of regret here is that, due to a happy quirk in fate, 9/10ths of this list is exactly how I might envision it. This is not just something that I'm in control of myself here. Everyone here has unwittingly nominated artists that I happen to like myself, & in nearly all the cases, their replacement votes ended up where I'd have placed the artists myself, in a poll of this nature.

I'll give you a few artists for replacements, but if my replacement # is particularly high, please don't yell. I haven't really felt the need to change anything, but this isn't entirely My fault alone. I'm willing to bet a few others here feel the same way as well... :) (we cool, big man?)

Replacements:

Oasis
Rage Against The Machine
ZZ Top
Johnny Burnette & the Rock & Roll Trio
Tool
Outkast
Hall & Oates
Black Flag
My Bloody Valentine
Steppenwolf

Cheesecrop - I understand where you're coming from. If you like the current nominees, there's not as much motivation to put in replacement nominees for your own list. The thing is that for this process to continue to work smoothly in the later rounds, we need to have artists at the 2-3 nomination level now to set up future rounds as well as the 5-6 nomination levels needed for the current rounds.

I'm not upset with anyone, just planning ahead, trying to avoid some logical problems, specifically the reality that as the popularity / quality of the artists (relatively speaking, we are still talking about Hall Of Fame caliber artists here) being voted on decreases, the interest in participation might also decrease, as it did with the album project.

Posted by Darren on Thursday, 01.10.13 @ 07:59am


Also, I want to clarify that I don't think the quality of the inductee choices has decreased, I'm concerned it may decrease 2 or 3 rounds down the road as the way things were trending, half of the voters were going to determine which artists everyone voted on, rather than everyone having a say.

I'll admit I was worried going into this round with all of the new 5 nomination artists coming in, but ultimately the results turned out to be very good. I think we had been slightly slacking when it came to the less mainstream bands, but we made up for it in a big way. We ultimately still have enough voters that any overnominated bands are still having to wait an appropriate time to get inducted.

I still think we're slacking a bit on pre-late 60's artists, but other than this past round, we've been doing much better with this lately. That's really my only complaint. I'm happy to see the 90's getting more love than last time, and I think some of the over-ranked artists from last time (especially prog rock) are heading toward a more appropriate spot.

Posted by BSLO on Thursday, 01.10.13 @ 09:53am


Of course you can't be made to nominate anybody. But it is very simple logic to see that less people nominating is going to skew the results. In the album project for an example, there were only 3 people nominating albums for a while. All my favorite albums were stuck with 1 nomination less than what was needed to qualify. Since I had already nominated them, and quite likely the other 2 voters had too, they were just stuck there in limbo. To get any action, I had to nominate inferior albums just to get something to that qualifying level. So while I had too much power in determining what was nominated, I could not use that power to actually get better albums ranked. The album rankings from 200-400 are very suspect in my opinion.

While it has not become that desperate here, it could in another few rounds, which is what Darren is trying to avoid.

Posted by jtrichey on Thursday, 01.10.13 @ 10:31am

For a change, I am presenting my ballot for the ranking Round 10 finalists in the Revised Rock Rankings a little earlier than expected. I will likely be rather busy these next two days or so; thus there is little time to waste. Here, then, is my ballot.


1. Peter Gabriel
2. Kate Bush
3. ABBA
4. Rush
5. Leonard Cohen
6. Frank Zappa
7. Blur
8. Earth, Wind and Fire
9. The Jam

11. The Cars
12. Duran Duran
13. Sonic Youth
14. Green Day
15. The White Stripes

In additon, I have finalized my Replacement Nominees for Round 11. I am actually pleased I get 9 artists this time. Without further ado, here is the new nine nominees. Try saying that 5 times fast.


1. Tommy James and The Shondells
2. INXS
3. Daryl Hall and John Oates
4. Solomon Burke
5. The Replacements
6. Rage Against The Machine
7. Warren Zevon
8. Connie Francis
9. Eric B. & Rakim

Well, there are my two different ballots for all to see. I do agree with the sentiment fellow posters have mentioned that we will need more participants in the nomonating process. In addition, we hopefully can be able to alter the Rankings with the inclusion o the 2028 inductees. My top pick for Replacement Nominees should be a good start.

Perplexed as to why other artists chew the scenery out of Leonard Cohen's work,

Replacement Nominations:

This is the number of performers that each past or present participant can nominate to get to the current limit of 50 nominations. Each user can nominate as many eligible performers up to 50 as they'd like. It's not required to have 50 nominations. It's not required to nominate performers to vote in the project, however only performers with the required number of nominations or more are eligible for the voting / ranking portion of the project, so the best way to have your opinions effect the process is to nominate as many eligible performers as you can. The required number of nominations is subject to change due to new nominations, so previously nominated performers aren't guaranteed to be nominated in future rounds.

Next to Bjork, this round of rankings has been particularly brutal on Sparks and Can. In the first rankings we did, they were ranked 107th and 119th respectively, and from the looks of it, neither will make the Top 200 this time around...

The only band I really can't believe has not been on the nominee list yet is KISS. To me they are one of the top 10 bands cited as an influence through all my years of reading about rock music. Dion is the next biggest snub in my eyes, but he's not even close to KISS.

I have now compiled my rankings for the 15 Performers to be ranked appropriately in the Revised Rock rankings Round 10. I do apologize if I have inflated the rounds over the last few weeks. In any matter, here is my ranking of the 15 artists.


1. Donna Summer
2. Tupac Shakur
3. Yes
4. King Crimson
5. The Moody Blues
6. New Order
7. Janet Jackson
8. Devo
9. The Yardbirds
10. Rage Against The Machine
11. Judas Priest
12. Ricky Nelson
13. Curtis Mayfield
14. ZZ Top
15. Martha and The Vandellas

And now I give forth what I do believe this time will be nine Replacement Nominees for Round 11. Only eight will approved last week due to a clerical error on my part. Thus, here are the nine artists I now include.


1. James Taylor
2. Def Leppard
3. Jethro Tull
4. Outkast
5. Coldplay
6. Jim Croce
7. Oasis
8. Alice In Chains
9. Yusuf Islam (Cat Stevens)

Well, there are the ballots for all to see. I do trust these ballots are presented on time and with approval. There will be certainly more to come on my end in the weeks ahead.

Replacement Nominations:

This is the number of performers that each past or present participant can nominate to get to the current limit of 50 nominations. Each user can nominate as many eligible performers up to 50 as they'd like. It's not required to have 50 nominations. It's not required to nominate performers to vote in the project, however only performers with the required number of nominations or more are eligible for the voting / ranking portion of the project, so the best way to have your opinions effect the process is to nominate as many eligible performers as you can. The required number of nominations is subject to change due to new nominations, so previously nominated performers aren't guaranteed to be nominated in future rounds.

Tahvo - You are the only voter to nominate Silver Apples at this point.

Gassman - You previously sent me your rankings so I could help you figure out who was missing. Would it help if I emailed that to you?

Posted by Darren on Thursday, 01.24.13 @ 21:00pm


By my count, there are 33 artists that were voted into the blind ballot project, but not the re-visited / projected project.

After the re-ranking project is completely done, does anyone want to have 2 rounds of voting to rank the 33 blind ballot inductees? No nominations necessary, just voting.

Posted by Darren on Thursday, 01.24.13 @ 23:55pm


Darren, I'm game. Good to be reminded of the blind ballot guys since the project is basically in the ether now. A lot of those 33 would get my support for the projected Hall.

I support the Heroes of the Blind Ballot vote and Jesus and Mary Chain. I like aggressive Darren.

Hello to all at Future Rock Legends. Some of you might be aware that no Replacement Nominees or final rankings for Round 11 were posted on my end. I would like to point out that I did present Replacement Nomonees and my final Rankings for Round 11 within the past two days. However, both times I submitted the comments, I had gotten a notice saying that the comments were too similar to spam. That seems impossible. I have not spammed or made derogatory remarks on these pages.

In any matter, I do plan on voting for Round 12 after looking over these 31 nomonees. It should be posted within the next day. If any poster has any answer for why my Friday and Saturday posts were considered to be spam, fel free to post below. I will, if needed, make the necessary changes in my commenting.

Sorry to bother you all with these inquiries,

Lax30

Replacement Nominations:

This is the number of performers that each past or present participant can nominate to get to the current limit of 50 nominations. Each user can nominate as many eligible performers up to 50 as they'd like. It's not required to have 50 nominations. It's not required to nominate performers to vote in the project, however only performers with the required number of nominations or more are eligible for the voting / ranking portion of the project, so the best way to have your opinions effect the process is to nominate as many eligible performers as you can. The required number of nominations is subject to change due to new nominations, so previously nominated performers aren't guaranteed to be nominated in future rounds.

Replacement Nominations:

This is the number of performers that each past or present participant can nominate to get to the current limit of 50 nominations. Each user can nominate as many eligible performers up to 50 as they'd like. It's not required to have 50 nominations. It's not required to nominate performers to vote in the project, however only performers with the required number of nominations or more are eligible for the voting / ranking portion of the project, so the best way to have your opinions effect the process is to nominate as many eligible performers as you can. The required number of nominations is subject to change due to new nominations, so previously nominated performers aren't guaranteed to be nominated in future rounds.

Replacement Nominations:

This is the number of performers that each past or present participant can nominate to get to the current limit of 50 nominations. Each user can nominate as many eligible performers up to 50 as they'd like. It's not required to have 50 nominations. It's not required to nominate performers to vote in the project, however only performers with the required number of nominations or more are eligible for the voting / ranking portion of the project, so the best way to have your opinions effect the process is to nominate as many eligible performers as you can. The required number of nominations is subject to change due to new nominations, so previously nominated performers aren't guaranteed to be nominated in future rounds.

GFW - You have previously nominated My Bloody Valentine. Here are your current nominees:

Journey

Television

Mike - You listed Massive Attack twice and didn't list the Spinners. I used the first Massive Attack as it's ranking, moved everything after that up one spot and put The Spinners at 1 point. If you want your rankings changed, let me know.

John R.C. - The White Stripes have already been voted in at #123.

"Motley Crue - Somebody's gotta give 'em a push :)"

Hell yeah Cheesecrop! Let the push for the Crue begin! With two nominations now, this band might even crack the top 300!!

Posted by BSLO on Friday, 02.15.13 @ 07:29am


"biggest snubs so far (not nominated)
Whitney Houston
Hall & Oates
Steppenwolf"

Looks like Whitney Houston and Hall & Oates are going to make the threshold this time. I would say they're more of a surprise snub than an actual snub though. I think somewhere around 250 is reasonable for both artists. I'd probably say the same about Steppenwolf, despite being a big fan.

The biggest surprises for me have been the low nomination totals for The Carpenters, (Young) Rascals and Faith No More. I'm not a huge Carpenters fan, but they've typically had strong support in these projects. The Rascals are a surprise given the support every other late 60's band has received, ditto with Faith No More compared to the rest of the 90's bands.

Posted by BSLO on Friday, 02.15.13 @ 07:47am


Whitney Houston and Hall And Oates each have 6 nominations, which will be the cut-off this round, so they'll be on the ballot.

The only artist that dropped out of the top 210 that seems like a snub to me is Notorious B.I.G.

In general, I'd say the biggest surprise is the lack of success for the second tier of 80's alternative rock artists. While The Replacements did make the cut, Black Flag, Faith No More, Husker Du, Jane's Addiction, The Flaming Lips, The B-52's and X are still waiting their turn.

Here is my ballot for the final rankings in Round 13 of the Revised Rock Rankings.


1. Tom Waits
2. Chic
3. Def Leppard
4. Massive Attack
5. Donovan
6. The Spinners
7. War
8. The Pretenders
9. Wilson Pickett
10. Gladys Knight
11. Stevie Ray Vaughan
12. Link Wray
13. The Righteous Brothers
14. The Shirelles
15. The Ventures

In addition, I have now completed my Replacement Nominees ballot to be included in Round 14 of the Revised rock rankings. I do trust that there are no indications of posting artists that I have already mominated. In any matter, here are my 14 replacement nominees.


1. Motley Crue
2. Richie Valens
3. Johnny Burnette
4. Barry White
5. The Dead Kennedys
6. Gene Pitney
7. The White Stripes
8. Missy Elliott
9. Megadeth
10. Pantera
11. Slayer
12. Jimmy Cliff
13. The Marvelettes
14. The Platters

Well, there are my lists for all to see. I do wonder if perhaps when all of this is completed, maybe we could have some form of multimedia to provide our commentary and opinions on these artists. In short, why is it we think these artists are worthy of being considered amongst the greatest and most influential. Those would be quite the stories to tell.

Now every artist has been nominated:),

Lax30 - The White Stripes have already been ranked. You've previously nominated Megadeth and Pantera. You have 3 more nominations if you'd like to use them.

"Motley Crue - Somebody's gotta give 'em a push :)"

Hell yeah Cheesecrop! Let the push for the Crue begin! With two nominations now, this band might even crack the top 300!!

Posted by BSLO on Friday, 02.15.13 @ 07:29am
--------------------------------------------------
And ever since you said this, look what's happened - more votes are coming in!

It's practically Motley-mania on here!


btw - I also see that Missy Elliott has started to pick up votes, so the sit's shutout has come to an end at the 200's. Everyone has at least one vote.

Posted by Cheesecrop on Saturday, 02.16.13 @ 05:41am


Once again, I have made some errors on my Replacement Nominees ballot. Although it is less than i feared would be. In any event, here are my 3 corrections in my Replacement Nominees ballot for Round 14.


1. My Bloody Valentine
2. The Ventures
3. The (Young) Rascals

Hope this helps,

Replacement Nominations:

This is the number of performers that each past or present participant can nominate to get to the current limit of 50

nominations. Each user can nominate as many eligible performers up to 50 as they'd like. It's not required to have 50 nominations. It's not required to nominate performers to vote in the project, however only performers with the required number of nominations or more are eligible for the voting / ranking portion of the project, so the best way to have your opinions effect the process is to nominate as many eligible performers as you can. The required number of nominations is subject to change due to new nominations, so previously nominated performers aren't guaranteed to be nominated in future rounds.

Replacement Nominations:

This is the number of performers that each past or present participant can nominate to get to the current limit of 50 nominations. Each user can nominate as many eligible performers up to 50 as they'd like. It's not required to have 50 nominations. It's not required to nominate performers to vote in the project, however only performers with the required number of nominations or more are eligible for the voting / ranking portion of the project, so the best way to have your opinions effect the process is to nominate as many eligible performers as you can. The required number of nominations is subject to change due to new nominations, so previously nominated performers aren't guaranteed to be nominated in future rounds.

Next round (Round 18) will be the final round of nominations. After Round 18, 31 or fewer artists will remain to be ranked. They will all be eligible for Round 19 initial voting. The top 15 will be involved in final ranking.

In Round 20, there will only be initial ranking, as there will be 16 or fewer artists remaining. Each voter will rank all 16 artists, making final ranking pointless.

After Round 20 we will have two rounds of ranking for the artists voted into the Blind Ballot Hall Of Fame that haven't been voted into the Revisited / Projected Hall.

Replacement Nominations:

This is the number of performers that each past or present participant can nominate to get to the current limit of 50 nominations. Each user can nominate as many eligible performers up to 50 as they'd like. It's not required to have 50 nominations. It's not required to nominate performers to vote in the project, however only performers with the required number of nominations or more are eligible for the voting / ranking portion of the project, so the best way to have your opinions effect the process is to nominate as many eligible performers as you can. The required number of nominations is subject to change due to new nominations, so previously nominated performers aren't guaranteed to be nominated in future rounds.

This is the last round of nominations, so smoke 'em if you got 'em.

"There are only 46 left to rank, isn't it time to just have all the remaining names eligible?"

I was planning on doing that for the last two rounds, since we usually want less than 40 artist on the ballot.

I might lower the threshhold to 5 nominations this round. That would include almost all of the artists, but still give the voters the opportunity to deliberately snub artists that they don't want nominated. Other than simply not caring, that would be the only reason not to nominate an artist at this point, since you could literally nominate every eligible artist unless you despised them so much that you wanted to make sure they were in the bottom 30.

With the rankings soon coming to an end, I had another idea for a light diversion. It's inspired by a post that FRL Twitter linked to (http://www.mercurynews.com/entertainment/ci_22772669/rock-and-roll-hall-fame-who-deserves-get) where the San Jose Mercury News is holding a bracketed RRHoF "snubs tournament".

It's a no brainer that KISS will win any poll or tournament amongst the casual observer, but I thought that it would be interesting to see what the more astute observers at FRL would come up with.

My rough idea would be to take the top 32 (or 64) acts in our current rankings who have yet to be enshrined in Cleveland, randomly pair them, and vote round by round until we have a winner. Pretty simple, no pain concept.

Just wanted to gauge whether there would be any interest.

Posted by DarinRG on Wednesday, 03.13.13 @ 03:38am


I'd be interested! Wouldn't be that hard to do.

DarinRG - I checked out the site. How do you list 32 HOF snubs and leave out the Moody Blues? I wouldn't be so sure that KISS will run away with the tournament, though. Journey and Bon Jovi have huge fan bases and any fan web site that posts a link to the site will probably win overwhelmingly. True story, on a previous battle of the bands site, Phish fans were so gung ho to win that they hacked the web site's servers to change the vote totals in a match against Bob Dylan. lol

I'd be interested in a battle of the bands featuring the artists we've voted in that could be considered snubs. I think we should stick to bands that are already eligible and rather than randomly pair them, we should use our rankings. If we use the performer rankings, we could have a built-in tiebreaker.

I haven't looked into it, but I think Kraftwerk would be the top seed and I think that they could be knocked off with the right match-up.

We could start the tournament after the artist ranking project is complete. There was some talk on the Song Project about have decade-specific votes to try to make sure we don't miss any songs before we start picking out the Top 100 lists. We could have this Battle of the Bands while we sort all that out.

Here's the remaining schedule for this project:

Round 18 Final Rankings - Ends Sat. 3/16
Round 19 Initial Rankings - Ends Wed. 3/20
Round 19 Final Rankings - Ends Sat. 3/23
Round 20 Initial / Final Rankings - Ends Sat. 3/30

Same thing goes for Electric Light Orchestra!

Posted by Rick Vendl II on Thursday, 03.14.13 @ 02:09am


Darren- Yeah, you hit an important point that I left out of my original post, that only Cleveland eligible acts would be included. Also, your idea of using the rankings as seedings to determine tie breaker is one that makes sense. maybe I can work up the brackets as we're getting closer to the end of rankings.

And yeah, the forgot Moody Blues but included Lionel Richie.

DarinRG - By my count there are 104 performers voted into our Revisited / Projected Hall Of Fame that are eligible for the RNR HOF but currently classified as "snubs". Granted, some of them have only been snubbed for 1 year (Soundgarden, Pixies), but that still counts.

If we want to include all 104 (and we should, in my opinion), we could give 1st round byes to the top 24 artists, have 40 first round match-ups and end up with a perfectly balanced tournament of 64 artists (just like March Madness) starting with the second round.

For the first few rounds we could have 8 "A or B" matches at a time, leave voting open for 48 hours and use the higher ranking as the tiebreaker. Round 1 (40 artists, 20 matches) would take 3 votes. Round 2 (64 artists, 32 matches) would take 4 votes.

For Round 3 (32 artists, 16 matches), have 4 matches at a time (4 votes). Same deal for Round 4 (16 artists, 8 matches, 2 votes).

When we're down to the "Elite 8", we could go 1 vote per round for the last 7 matches.

This plan would have 20 rounds of voting, taking 40 days total. We could make it faster by having 24 hour voting periods or by having more than one "Elite 8" match at a time.

Sound good?

Posted by Darren on Friday, 03.15.13 @ 00:06am


Darren- Yeah, the more artists included, the better, in my opinion. I know that most of us have favorites further down the list that we'd like seeing included. If we thought they were important enough to induct, why not give them a shot.

Sounds like a solid layout.

Posted by DarinRG on Friday, 03.15.13 @ 01:11am


On another non-music related site we've had tournaments where we've used bracketmaker.com to display the tournament in proper bracketed form. Maybe we could do that and provide the link each round for those who want to see it in bracket form, as well as posting the match ups here each round.

I like the idea of 24 hr. voting periods. This is all clearly quite reminiscent of how the radio stations go about their business around this time of yr. - they crunch the bands into fast-paced blocks of 30 & 60 minutes.

I suggest we do the same here. It gives these tourneys a diff. feel. Consider it, if you would.

Posted by Cheesecrop on Friday, 03.15.13 @ 06:17am


I have no problem with, and would in fact prefer, 24 hour voting periods. DarinRG / cheesecrop, would you be able to tally the votes, update the bracketmaker brackets and post the new day's matchups if I wasn't able to? I'd give you advance notice, of course.

DarrinRG, thanks for Mercury link. In 1st round I voted:

Peter. Paul & Mary over Kiss
Cheap Trick over Dead Kennedys
Replacements over Def Leppard
Deep Purple over Janet Jackson
Whitney Houston over Devo
Roxy Music over Joy Division (that was a tough one)
Duran Duran over Chic
Iron Maiden over Linda Rondstat
Cure over The Carpenters
NWA over The Monkees
The Cars over Bon Jovi
Lionel Ritchie over The Go Gos
Journey over Barry White
Peter Gabriel over Phil Collins
Joan Jett over Motley Crue (another tough one)
Depeche Mode over New Edition

No Moody Blues or Doobie Brothers! IMO, should have had those 2 at least in there. Fun though.

Posted by Paul in KY on Friday, 03.15.13 @ 10:09am


Roxy Music over Joy Division (that was a tough one)

-Paul in KY

Yeah, that one killed me, too. I ended up just going with seniority and voted Roxy, too.

Alright, so we seem to no longer have the posts ranking the most recent inductees to the side categories...so I'll need everyone to post a ballot again. Simply rank them where you feel they belong on the current list.


My ballot:

Influences (Rock Era):


Karlheinz Stockhausen - #32 (ahead of Ravi Shankar)
Jacques Brel - #34 (#33 + Karlheinz Stockahusen, ahead of Crew Cuts)



Non-Performers (Producers/Engineers):

Glyn Johns - #26 (ahead of Ted Templeman)


Non-Performers (Industry):

Art Rupe - #36 (ahead of Casey Kasem)


Sidemen (Individuals):

Jack Nitzche - #51 (ahead of Rob Sabino)
Philip Paul - #55 (#54 + Jack Nitzche) (ahead of John McLaughlin)



Hopefully, we can get more responses this time and knock that out. The third part of this re-ranking involves adding newly eligible artists to the #302 to 500 list. We will be covering both last fall's class of newbies which consist of the 2027/2028 eligibles, including The Decemberists, LCD Soundsystem and Yeah Yeah Yeahs and the 2028/2029 crop which includes Animal Collective, Arcade Fire and Kanye West.

My proposal is that people can bring forward names from either list and the ones with 5 supporters will be brought forward to the ranking stage where users can place them on the old list, anywhere between #302 and #500.

Yeah, no kidding. There's a pretty chance that Husker Du will face off against either Big Star or New York Dolls in the first round as well. Oh well, it's winner-take-all.

Correct. Thanks. I'll adjust the match-ups accordingly. No first round match for the Replacements and Nick Cave. Granted, the Replacements will now be up against Warren Zevon, so it's still a tough call.

At last, we are in the process of completing the first of what will be many Revised Rock Rankings to come. My thanks to Future Rock Legends for allowing me and other posters to make our opinions count and providing a rather fun approach to an art form we regard quite highly. Without further ado, here is my ranking of the remaining 16 performers.


1. Linda Ronstadt
2. Bad Company
3. Motley Crue
4. Missy Elliott
5. Pantera
6. Barry White
7. Lloyd Price
8. The Runaways
9. LaVern Baker
10. Mary Wells
11. XTC
12. Silver Apples
13. The Specials
14. Tommy James and The Shondells
15. Little Anthony and The Imperials
16. The Flamingoes

And there you have it. I do plan on getting involved these next two weeks in ranking the exclusive Blind-Vote inductees, even though I ended my participation in that project halfway through. Perhaps afterwards, maybe by our Class of 2029, we shall get started on the multimedia history project we (or I) have mentioned over the years. I make it a committment that I will not be doing that project last minute.

Thank you posters. Thosters,

Lax30

Barry White finished second in the tiebreaker, ranking 274th. Little Anthony And The Imperials finished third in the tiebreaker, ranking 286th. No further tie-breaking was required.

Everyone else - Do you guys want to update the rankings on an annual basis or once every two years?

Posted by Darren on Saturday, 03.30.13 @ 00:07am
--------------------------------------------------
Every two yrs. is cool.

Also, when are we going to start the Song Rankings? We were talkingabout it for a bit, and then I saw some talk about a bracket-styled tourney overtake it for a bit. I also see something about the Pyramid page.

What's up, & in what order? :)

The plan is:

1. Finish ranking the Blind Ballot Artists

2. The bracket-style tournament to determine our pick for the biggest snub.

3. The Song Ranking Project, starting with the pre-1960s songs.

We still have to decide if we want to have special induction classes that are decade specific. If we decide to do that, we would do it after the Song Project voting this month, but before we begin identifying the top 100 songs from pre-1960.

I do realize that I left the Blind Vote Project halfway through, in part because I initially thought we would have the same inductees as the Revisited/Projected Rock Hall Project. However, if it pleases fellow posters, I have compiled my ballot for 20 of the exclusive Blind Vote Ballot Performers inductees to be ranked. Here then is my ballot.


1. Brian Eno
2. Emmylou Harris
3. Bobby "Blue" Bland
4. Screamin Jay Hawkins
5. Dr. John
6. Ringo Starr
7. Phil Collins
8. The Spencer Davis Group/Steve Winwood

Snub Madness 2013 Update:

As previously discussed, we'll be staging a single-elimination, winner-take-all tournament featuring the artists that have been voted into the Revisited / Projected project but haven't been voted into the actual Hall Of Fame (artists that aren't eligible for induction yet are not included).

There are 101 artists that meet that description. The most recently posted list had 102 artists, but I have since noticed that Wanda Jackson has been inducted into the Hall Of Fame.

This tournament will begin after the conclusion of the Blind Ballot Performer Rankings. If there are no tiebreakers required in Round 2 of the rankings, voting in Snub Madness 2013 will begin at 10 PM on Friday, April 12th.

Seedings have been determined based on ranking in the recently completed Performer Re-Ranking project.

To have a balanced tournament with 64 first-round matches (128 artists total), the top 27 seeds (Kraftwerk through MC5) will receive first-round byes.

The tournament will be set up as a bracketed tournament, exactly like the NCAA Basketball Tournaments. This means that matches won't be reset top to bottom after each round in the case of upsets. The brackets can be viewed at this link:

http://www.bracketmaker.com/tmenu.cfm?tid=444012&tclass=Future%20Rock%20Legends%20Snub%20Madness%202013

If you see an artist on that bracket that isn't eligible for the Hall Of Fame or has been inducted into the Hall Of Fame, please point it out ASAP. Before you ask, Soundgarden and Bjork are currently eligible.

Starting after the conclusion of the Blind Ballot Ranking Project, we will conduct the first round over the course of 5 sets of match-ups. The first 4 sets will contain 8 first round match-ups and the 5th set will contain the remaining 5 first round match-ups.

The second round (64 artists) will consist of 4 sets of 8 match-ups.

The third round (32 artists) will consist of 4 sets of 4 match-ups.

The fourth round (16 artists) will consist of 2 sets of 4 match-ups.

The fifth round (8 artists) will consist of 2 sets of 2 match-ups.

The Final 4 match-ups and Championship match-up will each have their own day of voting.

This process will involve 20 total days of voting.

Each round of voting will be 24 hours in duration, starting and ending at 10 PM Central time.

Anyone can participate in the Tournament at any time.

Voting for all match-ups in a set of match-ups is not required. You can choose to skip / abstain from any match-up and your votes in the other match-ups will still be counted.

The winner of any match-up that ends in a tie vote will be the higher-seeded artist.

I'll tally the votes, update the tournament brackets and post the new match-ups each day. If there's a day when I'm unable to do this, I'll get a substitute and pass the tournament bracket information on to them so that they can do the updates.

Does anyone have any questions?

Cheese - Are you abstaining from Television v. Black Flag, or was it just an oversight?

Posted by DarinRG on Sunday, 04.14.13 @ 18:11pm


I do apologize for miaaing round one of Snub Madness, a good title for this project. If it pleases all involved, I have picked my selections for round 2 of Snub Madness. Here they are for all to ponder.


Yusuf Islam (Cat Stevens)
Thin Lizzy
Linda Ronstadt
LL Cool J
Link Wray
Dick Dale
Black Flag
Bjork

In addition, had I gotten involved with Round 1 of Snub Madness in the time alloted, here is how I would have voted. I do realize this would notmhave changed anything overall.

Harry Nillson
Jethro Tull
The Runaways
The Doobie Brothers
Cheap Trick
The B-52s
Scott Walker
Eurythmics

Again, this was what I would have voted for regarding round one. I will see to it that I will be involved with the rounds to come.

Having an idea of whom is the biggest snub,

I'm just gonna laugh. Would you really be surprised at this point? Remember what I was saying to you the other day about where things have been heading around here.

I'm also laughing my ass off at Love over Nick Cave. I'm a big fan of Love and hated to vote against them, but at this point in history, Nick Cave's body of work blows Love out of the water. And it's not even close. Pure 60s romanticism at work. Still love me some Arthur Lee, though.

In the end, nobody that we're voting on at this point is going to win this thing anyway, and few will advance through next round, so it really doesn't matter.

Can's currently up 7-5 and they hold the higher-seed tiebreaker, so they're not likely to lose.

Love is up 8-5 and holds the tiebreaker, so they're probably going to defeat Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds.

Lax30 - I'm going to do my best to close every day's voting shortly after 10 PM Central every day. There are 20 days total according to my estimate and I don't have any out-of-town plans in that timeframe (which sucks because I want to see Evil Dead and it's not playing where I live... lol), so I'll start the write-ups and get the results posted as close to 10 as I can every night.

I feel your pain, man. I know that you and I have very different points of view on what's important, and that's cool, but I had the same feeling about Television v. Black Flag. It's painful to have to pick between two acts, both of whom you think should be ranked much higher.

Had no clue till you told me. Good for Johnston, who technically is one of the most prolific instrumental artists ever.

I still say he belongs in our Project somewhere. Don't know whether he fits as a Voter's Choice sort any longer, what w/a near Top 40 track, but there's gotta be a place for this gent, somewhere.

Posted by Cheesecrop on Tuesday, 04.16.13 @ 09:43am


Johnston is interesting. He's created music that is iconic to multiple generations, but that doesn't fit anywhere here. I'd agree with you that he's (not counting a few classic Jazz artists) probably the most prolific and recognizable instrumental artist of our lifetime. Of course, his music is the soundtrack to a much maligned and dismissed art form.

I'll tell you this, though, we can all sift through the Song Project and find stuff that we're not really familiar with, but I'll bet that when anyone here hears breaking glass and that classic guitar riff, they know that a can of whoop ass is about to be opened.

Again, sorry about the delayed results. I got caught up in Vikings (on the History Channel) and lost track of time. lol

The bracket site won't currently let me update the standings. No idea why. The matches are played in order, so the first two winners from today will face off in the 3rd round, the 3rd will play the 4th and so on.

GFW - I wonder how much of Bjork's loss to Motorhead was a result of people not really considering her HOF eligible yet. The vast majority of her best music is from the mid-90s onward and while she's technically eligible, I think there's the perception that her best music isn't even close to eligible yet, so she shouldn't be either. Just a hunch, though.

Rick Vendl II - I don't think GFW was snubbing ELO. He didn't vote against them, after all and they didn't need his vote to advance past Chic. Next round against The Moody Blues, though...

Surely if Kraftwerk is considered (a good choice BTW), Tangerine Dream Must BE! TD is the best instrumental group of all time.

Posted by Phil J on Monday, 04.22.13 @ 01:31am


Phil J - In order to have been qualified for this tournament, an artist needed to have been voted into the Re-visited / Projected Hall Of Fame on this site. Tangerine Dream hasn't been voted in as part of that project, but as soon as they are, they can be involved in the next tournament.

Also, you're welcome to vote in Snub Madness if you'd like to do so.

Posted by Darren on Monday, 04.22.13 @ 01:53am


On that note, Tangerine Dream would definitely be a solid addition to our Hall.

I join with several posters above in my admiration for Tangerine Dream. I assume there is quite a bit of support for Tangerine Dream to be inducted into our Revisited/Projected Rock Hall Project. Hopefully this will happen before the end of this year.

FYI - To better fit the planned weekly schedule of the Song Ranking Project (2 days of nominations ending on a Friday, 5 days of voting ending on a Wednesday), both semi-final matches will be on the same day instead of each match having it's own day, as I had previously posted.

Seeing that we are getting near the end of our bracket voting, people should starting looking at what songs they want to nominate for the 50's in the song ranking project.

My Round 4, Day 2 votes are as follows for Snub Madness.


Joy Division
Depeche Mode
The Cars
King Crimson

Andrew, I and others do appreciate your own personal ranking of 301 artists in music. However, I do not believe I can accept your list. Primarily this is due to you ranking The Beatles at a considerably low position. What is worse, in my opinion, is you ranked Poison six spots ahead of The Beatles for some arbitrary season. Are you trying to say that Poison is more important than The Beatles in your mind? I am pretty certain they are not.

Also perplexed to see Asia ranked higher than Yes,

If Andrew's list bothers you, I'm sure you'll keel over knowing that The Beatles wouldn't even crack my list of my 1,000 favorite recording artists (I've done a listing of my favorite 100 musical acts, but am in the process of expanding it to 1,000).

I've documented why I feel The Beatles are overrated elsewhere, so no need to rehash it again. Go look on the Chuck Berry and Lawrence Welk pages if you need to know my reasons.

Andrew, I do appreciate your revisions. Zach, after having read your reasons for your dislike of The Beatles, I still feel you are wrong. Perhaps you know the reason why.

Joy Division
The Cure

Posted by John R.C. on Sunday, 04.28.13 @ 23:35pm


Joy Division (there's a very strong case to be made for DM with their combination of influence, commercial success and longevity, but JDs overall impact and broader, more groundbreaking influence edges them out for me.)

Roxy Music (I'm a bigger fan of the Cure, but objectively I think that, like JD, Roxy had too broad and innovative of an influence to vote against here. I'll be happy either way, though.)

Posted by DarinRG on Monday, 04.29.13 @ 00:09am


Depeche Mode
The Cure

Posted by jtrichey on Monday, 04.29.13 @ 00:21am


I am a bit surprised with T.Rex beating Deep Purple. Both bands are huge snubs in the Hall of Fame and both Ritchie Blackmore/Marc Bolan deserve to the Hall. Yet I've always seen Deep Purple as being a more important band. Anyone care to share why they picked T.Rex?

Posted by Gassman on Monday, 04.29.13 @ 03:56am


Gassman- I certainly wouldn't argue with anyone making a case for Deep Purple between the two. I actually had to do quite a bit of pondering on it.

In the end I went with T. Rex because I perceive them to have a broader scope of influence. Hard rock, metal, punk, post-punk, power pop and goth acts routinely cite Mr. Bolan & Co. as a major influence and I've never really seen that scope from Deep Purple.

In the end, it's really about what each individual voter deems important. For me, measuring stick #1 for Hall worthiness is how deep and broad an act's reach of influence is (with commercial/chart success being my lowest rated statistic). So I completely understand your support of Deep Purple, but that's why I went with T. Rex.

5. Elton John
4. The Rolling Stones
3. Rush
2. Billy Joel
1. The Beatles

I hope that'll clear things up for you guys.

Don't bow to pressure dude. You don't have to let everyone on this site influence who you put at #1. Didn't you have Billy Joel there first? You've re-printed this list for everyone while trying to change it to suit others. You can put him in at the top if you like.

Don't let these people brainwash you, man... even if they can see us through the computer... & are probably planning something right now... and... and... ummm...


I think I'm gonna go hide in the closet now... :)

Posted by Cheesecrop on Monday, 04.29.13 @ 06:24am


I agree with Cheese. Andrew's list is obviously a personal preference list and he shouldn't feel pressured into having to include other people's sacred cows.

If I were making an objective list, yeah, I'd probably put the Beatles at #1. But, I also think that as RnR expands in different directions and the Boomers and their nostalgia and narrative pass on, the Beatles very well might lose that spot within another generation. They may have been more popular than Jesus, but they won't be forever.

Now, if I were making a personal preference list, like Andrew clearly did, the Beatles would probably fall somewhere in the 475-525 range. I'll take Lennon-Ono over Lennon-McCartney any day for my own listening pleasure.

And, to be sure, sacred cows make for damn tasty burgers.

My Round 5, Day 2 Snub Madness votes are listed below.


Depeche Mode
Roxy Music

Just to let you know, I am not a part of the boomer generation. As my moniker mentions, I am 30 years old. On a personal level, there are indeed a number of bands and artists I find to be a bit overvalued. The Beatles, along with John Lennon, Sir Paul McCartney and George Harrison individually are not one of them. Yet I would certainly alter the 301 artists inducted as perfromers to fit my personal tastes. Even so, my picks when not reached as a consensus are considered far out. Here is an example. I think we should consider inducting into the Revisited/Projected Rock Hall Project more foreign languagerock artists, particulary from Japan. I would start with Ryuchi Sakamoto and/or Yellow Magic Orchestra: maybe the Japan music industry's answer to The Beatles (either them or X Japan.) Certainly the first of their kind to gain worldwide importance. The question that remains is, what do others think of this idea? You see, I may be a lone voice in this matter; or maybe I am not. A consensus may need to be reached for a result to be made.

Happy 30th anniversary Merry Christmas, Mr. Lawrence,

Tough call. Two of my favorite bands and two bands who you could make a strong argument for winning this thing. I consider Kraftwerk to be the RRHoF's #1 snub though, so I had to go that route. It would certainly be no shame if the Cure wins, though.

Both are responsible for a certain genre in a way, and both are among my top 5 snubs, so there will be no loser here.

I'm in the process of writing up the introduction to the first round of voting in the Song Project. It will be posted shortly.

Song Ranking Project, of course.

Posted by Darren on Wednesday, 05.1.13 @ 23:04pm


Now that the Snub Madness tournament is complete, we can begin the Song Ranking project.

The first step in this process is to identify the top 100 inducted songs from each decade / group.

This will be done using 4 rounds of 25 inductees per round. 25 is an absolute number of inductees with no extensions in the case of a tie. There will be a tiebreaker at the end of each round if necessary.

Each round will have a one week schedule.

The first two days will be reserved for nominations and tiebreakers. When nominations open, the full list of eligible songs from the current decade / group in the process will be posted. This list will be updated constantly to include the "last chance" inductees and any new inductees from the Song Project. Songs are not officially eligible until they have been officially voted in, so even if a song is obviously going to be inducted, they won't be eligible until it's official.

Tiebreakers will be conducted using the "rank all songs in the tiebreaker" method that we've traditionally used in these projects. Any song that loses a tiebreaker will be automatically eligible for the next round of voting, unless it's the 4th and final round for the group.

After nominations are closed, there will be 5 days of voting.

All nominations, tiebreakers and votes will conclude at approx. 10 PM Central time.

Our first decade / group will be all inducted songs released before 1960. This includes all songs voted in as Early Influences. We did not previously decide to limit this category to songs from the 1950s, but nominations and voting are at your discretion, so if you don't want to nominate or vote for songs from before 1950, that's your prerogative.

Because I don't know how many participants we should expect for this project now and in the future (it will take a long time to complete this entire process), the number of nominations each voter can make may vary early on as we feel out the correct number of nominations and votes.

For Round 1 (of 4) of the pre-1960 group, each voter can nominate 5 songs. Once nominations are closed, each voter can vote for 30 nominated songs. The top 25 vote-getters will be selected as part of the Top 100 songs from this group.

I will be posting the list of eligible pre-1960 inductees shortly. All nominations must be selected from this list of songs.

Posted by jtrichey on Thursday, 05.2.13 @ 01:11am


I thought we were going to do what we did for the album rankings were we give our top 25-30 songs and then the songs with the 20-25 most votes would be added to the rankings list with the process then repeating again 4-5 times. I'm not a huge fan of this current method.

Posted by Gassman on Thursday, 05.2.13 @ 01:19am


I feel like a lot of important songs could slip cracks.

Posted by Gassman on Thursday, 05.2.13 @ 01:22am


Gassman - We're using this method because we want an overall ranking list as well as a decade by decade list.

The best way to do that is to narrow down the pool of eligible songs by first determining the top 100 songs from each decade / group.

From that pool of 600 songs + songs from 2010-2012, we'll do the top 100 overall songs using the nomination counts and ranking method. This will be 10 rounds of 10 songs ranked per round.

Along with determining the top 100 overall songs, this method will determine the top ranked songs for each group as well. The #1 song overall would also be the #1 song in it's decade / group and so on. We'll then finish ranking the top 100 songs for each group until all the rankings are complete.

Some songs may slip through the cracks, but it all depends on how many people participate in the project, how frequently they participate and how "seriously" (for example, nominating based on trying to qualify the best list of songs overall versus nominating to try to score points for their favorite band).

Any method of ranking is going to be reliant on these same factors. For example, Husker Du probably dropped 30-50 spots in the Performer Rankings because they could never get enough nominations to top the threshhold for nomination, not even when we got to the point where voters could nominate all remaining artists. People lost interest and stopped participating. It happens.

If we ranked all the decades first and then tried to do the overall rankings, the only way we could remain consistent is by comparing the top ranked song from each group and taking the top vote-getter as the next song to be ranked. The major problem with this is that if we screwed up a particular group ranking, it would create a bottle neck that would prevent any other song from that group from being voted in until the road block was voted in. Also, this would take significantly longer to complete.

Right now, we're trying to find the best round settings to make this process work properly. Currently, we're nominating 5 songs per round and voting for 30 songs per round from the list of nominees. If we don't get enough nominees, we'll up the number of nominees next round. If it seems like we need more votes to get the best results, we'll up the number of votes. The only thing we can't control is which songs people choose to nominate, but there's no accounting for taste and no way to make sure that Voter A nominates songs that Voter B thinks are important.

Hopefully, we'll get enough participants to maximize the quality of our results.

Posted by Darren on Thursday, 05.2.13 @ 02:22am


I understand what you are saying, but I don't like the idea of only putting for 5 songs per round.

My idea would be for everyone to vote for their top 30 songs pre-1960, with the top 25 vote getters moving on to the Top 100 Overall Vote. We would then repeat that process 3 more times, until we get 100 songs from pre-1960.

We would then repeat that process for the 60's, 70's, 80's, 90's and 00's until we have a total of 600 songs.

We would then rank the 100 best songs out of that 600 to get a top 100 and then we could go decade by decade and get a top 100.

This process actually would actually speed things up as we are eliminating the nomination process and going straight to choosing what 100 songs we feel are worthy.

Song Project Nominees:

Howlin' Wolf - Smokestack Lightning (1956)

Link Wray & His Ray Men - Rumble (1958)
Peggy Lee - Fever (1958)

For the record, I can see where Gass is coming from regarding the nomination process, & I was under the same impression he was about voting. I respect both ways, as it stands, but I do think some thought needs to be given to other methods as well. :)

Posted by Cheesecrop on Thursday, 05.2.13 @ 06:02am


Darren, thank you for running the bracket. Had a good time doing it.

Posted by Paul in KY on Thursday, 05.2.13 @ 07:37am


I believe more thought was given to other methods already. This method will work fine as a screening as you will have a minimum of 20 nominations just by yourself to keep songs from slipping through the cracks. I do believe that we ought to have more than 100 songs to choose our top 100 from though. Maybe get to 110-120 nominees to choose our 1950s top 100?

Posted by jtrichey on Thursday, 05.2.13 @ 10:31am


Gassman - I like your idea and I'll put together a more complete response after work when I have time to write.

For this round, let's proceed with the original plan and then make adaptations for Round 2.

I'll also address jtrichey's question at that time.

Posted by Darren on Thursday, 05.2.13 @ 11:20am


The Flamingos - I Only Have Eyes For You
The Clovers - Love Potion No.9
Leadbelly - Midnight Special
Hank Williams - I Saw The Light
Little Richard - Long Tall Sally

Posted by GFW on Thursday, 05.2.13 @ 16:54pm


Gassman - Based on the current amount of participation, 5 nominations isn't nearly enough. We're almost a day in and so far we only have 5 participants. For this round, we'll need to increase the number of nominations per voter to 10.

In future rounds, we'll use the nomination method method you described, but I don't think 30 is going to be enough to get a 25-song consensus. This is especially true in later decades when some decades have more than 500 inductees. I would propose that we try 100 nominees, with a tiebreaker vote if we don't land on exactly 25 inductees each round. With more nominees, we'd decrease the possibility of a song making the top 100 with only a handful of votes. If 100 isn't enough, we could increase this number in the future.

I do think we should stick to the one-week schedule, with nominations ending on Wednesday and tiebreakers ending on Friday. That way, everyone has enough time to participate, we keep a regular schedule so everyone knows what's happening and when, and Wednesday is the one day of the week when I'm least likely to be out of town or away from my computer, so it's the ideal day for the most important deadline in the process.

jtrichey - So what you're asking is if we could add an additional round of voting to each group so that we would identify 125 (the logical extension of the process, in my opinion) songs from each group prior to voting for the Top 100 all-time. I have no objection to doing this (I would limit this to one extra round so that the process doesn't take a significantly longer time), so what does everybody else think?

To review, by necessity, we'll be increasing the number of songs a voter can nominate for this round from 5 to 10. I'll extend the deadline for nominations until Saturday at 10 PM (approx.). This will also allow me to post the nominations (I'll be unable to do so on Friday). Voting will still end on Wednesday.

Starting with Round 2, we'll go to a variation of Gassman's nomination proposal. I would suggest each voter have 100 nominations, but that detail is still up for discussion.

Also up for discussion is whether or not we'll have 5 rounds of 25 per decade / group or 4 (aka jtrichey's proposal). Let me know what you guys think and we'll go from there.

I like jtrichey's proposal of nominating 125 songs, but only ranking 100. It will give us more options when we go to the ranking stage and it will make it easier for me to come up with a master list. Cutting things down to 100 is hard! :p

These songs will be involved in a tiebreaker vote:

Chuck Berry - Maybellene (1955)
Little Richard - Long Tall Sally (1956)

The tiebreaker vote starts now and ends at 10 PM Central on Friday. To vote, rank all 3 songs by preference. The top two vote-getters are qualified. First prize is a Cadillac Eldorado. Second prize is a set of steak knives. Third prize is you're fired, or at least not yet qualified for the final rankings.

We'll be changing the way that the nomination / voting process works from this point forward. Starting with this round (and for the rest of this part of the project), each voter will select 100 songs from this group's list (which I'll be posting shortly). The 25 songs with the most nominations will be qualified for final ranking. In the event of a tie, there will be a tiebreaker.

After each round (except for the 5th and final round), voters will be allowed to replace the newly qualified songs that they had previously nominated.

Nominations begin now and will close at 10 PM Central on Wednesday. Tiebreakers (when necessary), will start on Wednesday at 10 and end on Friday at 10.

From this point forward, nominations will work differently than they did in the first round.

Each voter can nominate 100 songs from this list. The 25 songs with the most nominations will be qualified for the top 100 of the pre-60s era and the top 100 overall.

In the event of a tie, a standard tiebreaker vote will take place.

At the start of a new round, voters will be allowed to replace the qualified songs from their list of nominations.

Anyone who wants to participate may do so at any time.

The tiebreaker will end at 10 PM Central on Friday, May 10th.

I won't be able to post the tiebreaker results at 10 on Friday. I will post the current standings before I leave for the weekend, so I would appreciate it if someone would post the updated results at 10. If you've nominated one of the 2 songs that won the Round 1 tiebreaker, you can replace your nominations.

Nominations will end at 10 PM Central on Wednesday, May 15th.

Here are the current tiebreaker standings:

Buddy Holly - Peggy Sue - 14
Chuck Berry - Maybellene - 11
Little Richard - Long Tall Sally - 11

The tiebreaker ends at 10 PM tonight. If there are other tiebreakers entered before then, would someone please post the updated results at 10 PM?

The tiebreaker in a tiebreaker is number of 1st place votes. Both "Maybellene" and "Long Tall Sally" have 2 first place votes.

If there are not further tiebreaker votes before the deadline, I'd like to change my rankings so that "Maybellene" gets 2 points and "Long Tall Sally" gets 1 point. This would let "Peggy Sue" and "Maybellene" qualify in Round 1. We should have no trouble getting "Long Tall Sally" in during Round 2.

If there are other tiebreaker votes before 10, please ignore my previous suggestion and leave my rankings as is.

Posted by Darren on Friday, 05.10.13 @ 18:56pm


Here are my tiebreaker votes that I almost forgot were needed.


Chuck Berry - Maybellene - 3
Little Richard - Long Tall Sally - 2
Buddy Holly - Peggy Sue - 1

I don't really understand this step. If we are trying to get to 100 nominees, why do we have to rank these songs just to get to the first 40 nominees? Shouldn't all the songs just make it no questions asked? I honestly have no interest in ranking those 24 songs right now.

The point is, if we don't use the tiebreaker system, voters would manipulate their nominations to create giant ties to get the maximum number of songs in each round.

For future rounds, would users prefer to select (using this round as example) 19 songs from the tiebreaker and go with the songs with the most votes rather than ranking all 24 songs involved in the tiebreaker?

Here's an idea for tiebreakers in this project going forward:

If there are 10 or fewer songs in the tiebreaker, we use the current tiebreaker method.

If there are more than 10 songs in the tiebreaker, we vote for the number of available songs.

I'm concerned that this method of nominating songs (especially if we only get 6 or 7 sets of nominations) could lead to massive tiebreakers involving 40 or more songs.

What do you guys think?

Posted by Darren on Friday, 05.17.13 @ 01:20am


That works for me!

Posted by Gassman on Friday, 05.17.13 @ 12:05pm


Alright, so we still haven't finished the rock rankings. I apologize for losing the ballots that were received (about half a dozen) as I forgot that the older comments are removed from this page as they happen.

Please submit your ballots for the recent inductees to the side categories. They have still yet to be ranked here.

Here is my ballot and the format you should all follow. Thanks in advance. Let's finish this damn thing!


Influences (Rock Era):


Karlheinz Stockhausen - #32 (ahead of Ravi Shankar)
Jacques Brel - #34 (#33 + Karlheinz Stockahusen, ahead of Crew Cuts)



Non-Performers (Producers/Engineers):

Glyn Johns - #26 (ahead of Ted Templeman)


Non-Performers (Industry):

Art Rupe - #36 (ahead of Casey Kasem)


Sidemen (Individuals):

Jack Nitzche - #51 (ahead of Rob Sabino)
Philip Paul - #55 (#54 + Jack Nitzche) (ahead of John McLaughlin)



Also, someone needs to contact the site administrator and get the rankings changed up above. I think it should be agreed upon not to have a new ranking start until two years after the new ones are implemented across the site. In other words, the next balloting wouldn't begging until mid-May 2015 if the new list is implemented soon. It really isn't that imperative to keep re-ranking the artists that often in my opinion.

The tiebreaker vote starts now and ends at 6 PM Central on Friday (earlier than usual due to Memorial Day weekend plans).

Since there are more than 10 songs involved in this tiebreaker, we'll be doing a vote rather than a traditional tiebreaker vote. Due to the large number of eligible songs and the fact that only 5 will be qualified this round, each voter will get 10 votes. The top 5 vote-getters will be qualified for the final rankings. If a second tiebreaker is required, it will take place after the conclusion of this tiebreaker.

My Tiebreaker Votes:

Billie Holiday - Strange Fruit (1939)
Bobby Darin - Mack The Knife (1959)
Chuck Berry - School Days (1957)
Danny & The Juniors - At The Hop (1957)
Elvis Presley - All Shook Up (1957)
Elvis Presley - Don't Be Cruel (1956)
Hank Williams - I'm So Lonesome I Could Cry (1949)
Hank Williams - Your Cheatin' Heart (1953)
Peggy Lee - Fever (1958)
Woody Guthrie - This Land Is Your Land (1944)

We're only three weeks into this project and we're already starting to see diminishing returns in regards to participation. Lack of participation was one of the major flaws of the previous ranking projects that used the nomination / ranking methodology, so we need to look into potential options going forward.

In Round 1, we had 11 participants using the 10 nominations / 30 votes method.

In Round 2, we had 7 participants submit full or partial lists of 100 nominees.

In Round 3, we had 4 participants update their list of nominees to replace the songs that were qualified in Round 2. Let's call it 5, as I'm sure Lax30 would have put in replacement nominations if he wasn't already over 100 for Round 3.

This project won't produce the best results possible if only 4-7 people are participating on an ongoing basis. The pre-1960 group is one of the smallest of the 6 groups and if we have this much difficulty selecting nominations when there's less than 200 songs to choose from, what's it going to be like in the 60s with 418 or the 70s with 538? Songs getting 3 or 4 endorsements doesn't exactly scream "best of the best".

If we don't see an increase in participation using the current 100 nominations method during the last 2 rounds of the pre-60's group we'll need to go back to 10 nominations / 30 votes method from Round 1 when we start qualifying songs from the 60s.

Posted by Darren on Thursday, 05.23.13 @ 00:14am


My main issue is that I truly nominated all the songs I felt were worthy already, so I have no replacements that I want to put forth. For me that will only be a problem during this 50s voting. However, it is a lot of work to come up with an original list of 100 nominees, so that is going to be a hindrance to some people I'm sure.

tiebreaker:
Bobby Darin - Mack The Knife (1959)
Buddy Holly & The Crickets - Rave On! (1958)
Chuck Berry - School Days (1957)
Chuck Berry - Sweet Little Sixteen (1958)
Danny & The Juniors - At The Hop (1957)
Elvis Presley - All Shook Up (1957)
Elvis Presley - Don't Be Cruel (1956)
Fats Domino - I'm Walkin' (1957)

I ment to say out of the 50's for GFW

Posted by Gassman on Thursday, 05.23.13 @ 01:29am


Tie-Breaker:

Al Jolson - Swanee (1919)
Chuck Berry - Sweet Little Sixteen (1958)
Dale Hawkins - Susie Q (1956)
Danny & The Juniors - At The Hop (1957)
Elvis Presley - Don't Be Cruel (1956)
Fats Domino - I'm Walkin' (1957)
Jackie Brenston - Rocket 88 (1951)
Leadbelly - In The Pines (Where Did You Sleep Last Night?) (1944)
Peggy Lee - Fever (1958)
The Champs - Tequila (1958)

I'll simply say that I'm always a little confused by the way this is going. We're told to do a tie-breaker, yet at the same time we're being asked to nominate songs for the next round. At the same time, potential tie-breakers are part of this process. It makes it very hard to know just what to choose. I feel as though I'm falling over myself w/these selections, since I'm never sure if I'll have to go back & replace what I nominated in the first place.

This whole thing feels very bulky, very unwieldy, & desperately needs to be simplified. That, or else just stop now, before we get too deep into it, & admit that it's too gear a bulk to strip down to a master list, per' se. I'm in it for the time being, but I'd like to see some kind of simplification overall.

I'm sure I'll stumble into this eventually, I'm just having trouble building enthusiasm for another ranking project at the moment.

I almost jumped in a couple times for the purpose of making sure that Edith Piaf doesn't get overlooked, but I ended up sharing Cheese's feelings of confusion. From the outside, this all looks very random and overcomplicated. I'm not really sure what's going on.

Cheesecrop - From now on, I'll wait until after the tiebreakers are over to post the list of remaining songs and replacement nominations. The only reason I posted the lists immediately was to give people 7 days to figure out their replacements instead of 5.

You don't have to replace songs that you've previously nominated. Once a song is nominated, it's nominated until it gets qualified or voting for that group ends.

What else needs to be simplified?

Stopping now? Not an option. The plan for this project always involved trying different methods during the pre-60s group (when more than half of the songs will get voted in) to determine the best way to conduct the project for the more heavily populated decades. If it's confusing, it's because it's a work in progress.


DarinRG - "From the outside, this all looks very random and overcomplicated. I'm not really sure what's going on."

Please explain. I can't fix a problem if I don't know the details of the problem.

Here's how it currently works:

1. Everyone gets 100 nominations from the current group (pre-60s).

2. The 25 songs that get the most nominations are qualified for the top 100 songs of all-time voting and the top 100 for the current group.

3. If there aren't exactly 25 songs qualified at the end of nominations each round, there will be a tiebreaker. If the tiebreaker contains 10 songs or less, we use the traditional "rank all songs" tiebreaker. If there are more than 10 songs, we use a "Select X songs from Y list" tiebreaker where the songs with the most votes get qualified.

4. Each group will have 5 rounds of 25 qualified songs, for a total of 125 qualified songs per group.

5. After any required tiebreakers in Rounds 1-4, voters can nominate songs to replace their previous nominations that were qualified in the previous rounds. After the conclusion of Round 5, we'll begin with Round 1 of the next group (1960s).

We're currently conducting the tiebreaker for Round 3. The tiebreaker ends at 6 PM on Friday. Round 4 will begin after the conclusion of the Round 3 tiebreakers and will end at 10 PM next Wednesday.

After the conclusion of all rounds for all groups, we'll use a nomination and voting process to determine the top 100 songs of all-time and then finish ranking the top 100 songs from each group that didn't make the top 100 of all-time.

The current method that we're using is the method that was requested following the first round, which featured nominations and then a vote, similar to the Song Project.

Nothing is finalized and if there's a better way of doing things we can make adjustments as needed.

There are currently 6 songs with 3 or more votes. 5 songs win the tiebreaker. If we have a situation where a tiebreaker results are close like this (say, within 3 songs), should we hold a second tiebreaker or advance the 1-3 "extra" songs and induct 22-24 songs next round instead of 25?

Darren - I think I came off differently than I intended to. I'm not really saying that anything needed to be fixed, I just haven't been around much or paying much attention to things around here for the past three or four weeks, so I wasn't quite sure where things were at or where I was jumping in. I'll look over your instructions and try to join in.

Deep down inside, this is probably what I was looking for. :)

It was getting kind of aggravating, looking over your own list again & again, trying to figure out which was which...

The tiebreaker vote starts now and ends at 10 PM Central on Friday.

Since there are more than 10 songs involved in this tiebreaker, we'll be doing a vote. Due to the large number of eligible songs and the fact that only 6 will be qualified this round (24 songs will get qualified this round, as 26 were qualified in Round 3), each voter will get 12 votes (having twice as many votes as songs that win the tiebreaker seems to work in situations like this). The top 6 vote-getters will be qualified for the final rankings. If a second tiebreaker is required, it will take place after the conclusion of this tiebreaker.

The tiebreaker vote starts now and ends at 10 PM Central on Friday.

Since there are more than 10 songs involved in this tiebreaker, we'll be doing a vote. Due to the large number of eligible songs and the fact that only 22 will be qualified this round, each voter will get 25 votes (slightly more, but not quite twice as many). The top 22 vote-getters will be qualified for the final rankings. If a second tiebreaker is required, it will take place after the conclusion of this tiebreaker.

Posted by Darren on Wednesday, 06.5.13 @ 23:04pm


The tiebreaker voting will be the conclusion of qualifications for the pre-60s group.

Nominations for Round 1 of the 1960s group will begin tonight and conclude next Wednesday at 10 PM. I'll be posting the list of qualified songs soon.

There are significantly more eligible songs for the 1960s (418 songs), so we may experiment with the number of songs each voter can have nominated at one time. We'll start out with 100 each and move to 150 or 200 in future rounds if necessary. If you're interested in participating in this phase of the project, please post your initial nominations and keep them updated round to round. The more people participate, the better the results will be.

Any songs voted into the Song Project during a round of this project will be eligible for nomination in the next round.

Very disappointed with the songs we nominated for the 1950's. Let's have a thousand Elvis, Chuck Berry and Buddy Holly songs but none by Louis Jordan, T-Bone Walker, Les Paul, Count Basie or The Weavers. Also we couldn't nominate possibly the greatest Jazz song of all time in "Rhapsody in Blue." It's just a bit frustrating.

Regardless, here is my tiebreaker vote:

1. Jackie Brenston - Rocket 88 (1951)
2. The Drifters - Money Honey (1953)
3. Elmore James - Dust My Broom (1951)

7. Hank Williams - I Saw The Light (1948)
8. Miles Davis - So What (1959)
9. Ruth Brown (Mama) He Treats Your Daughter Mean (1953)
10. John Lee Hooker - Boogie Chillen (1948)
11. Cab Calloway - Minnie The Moocher (1931)
12. Hank Ballard And The Midnighters - Work With Me, Annie (1954)
13. Dave Brubeck - Take Five (1959)
14. Scott Joplin - The Entertainer (1902)
15. Muddy Waters - Mannish Boy (1955)
