Battle of the Bands (week 7 / episode 9)

5000 page viewsHello my fellow followers and thank you for the 5000 page views in the first 2 months of existence! Here we are with the second last Battle of the Bands poll. Next week, we will choose the 10th and last band that will complete  “our Top 10 Bands of All Times”!

For the last but one battle I chose two bands that have no rivals among their contemporaries. So, to me, the only solution is to make them compete one against the other…

Battle of the Bands (week 6 / episode 7)

Welcome to this week’s second Battle of the Bands poll! On Monday, we had to choose between Nirvana and PJ, two of the bands that most of all have influenced the 90’s music until today…! This time, our choice has to fall on one of the two most important bands of the 80’s and we will be one step closer to “our Top 10 Bands of All Times“!

Battle of the Bands (week 6)

Cheers folks, this is a Monday Battle of the Bands poll… and this week the choice is between two of the most popular, actually maybe THE most popular bands of the ’90s. We already had the Beatles against the Rolling Stones, the Who competing against the Doors, Blur vs. Oasis etc. and with this one we will be getting one step closer to “our Top 10 Bands of All Times“!
