Please note the tie for 15th between Metallica and The Temptations. Since this is a two-way tie, I think that the best way to handle the final rankings is to rank all 16 artists this round and only rank 14 artists in Round 5 (#57-#70). If there were than 2 artists tied for the final spot, I would say that only the top 15 in the Final Tiebreaker would be ranked. If you would prefer to use this method in this cas as well, please let me know and we'll discuss the other method of breaking a tie involving only one extra


Final tiebreaker voting is now open.

The following performers are qualified to be ranked #41-#56 in the overall rankings for 2017 (the 2017 rankings will be averaged with the final rankings from 2014 to determine the 2017 final rankings):

Eagles
Fleetwood Mac
Janis Joplin and Big Brother and the Holding Company
Jerry Lee Lewis
John Lennon
Joni Mitchell
Kraftwerk
Madonna
Metallica
Otis Redding
Radiohead
Simon & Garfunkel
Sly & The Family Stone
Talking Heads
The Byrds
The Temptations


Everyone is eligible to participate in the final rankings, regardless of previous participation in the project.

To participate in the final rankings, rank the 16 performers in order of preference.

Final rankings will be determined by the number of points earned in the final tiebreaker.

There will be 3 days of tiebreaker voting (with the deadline extended by a day due to the late posting of these results).

Tiebreaker voting will end at 10 PM Central (votes accepted until 11 PM Central) on Monday the 22nd.

  Nominations are now open for the first genre vote, "80s Alternative - Non-American Artists".

Each voter can nominate two songs that they feel belong in this genre vote. All previously posted nominations will be included.

If you feel that a song has been nominated for this genre inappropriately, please lodge a protest and explain why the song isn't eligible. Any song that receives three protests will be disqualified from this genre vote.

There will be two days of nominations and one day of review (songs can still be nominated on the third day, but please be sure that the song you nominate is unquestionably eligible for this genre).

Nominations / review will end at 10 PM Central on Friday the 19th. Nominations will still be accepted until 11 PM Central on Friday the 19th, when voting begins.
