I just got in on this in the latest round, but I thought there were many bands that weren't in this that could have been. Some of these might be personal preferences, but I think they are fairly popular. And I realize only so many teams to fit with the whole soccer thing (I'm a yank, so I THINK that is what you were going for).

Boards of Canada
Dave Matthews Band
Franz Ferdinand
Garbage
Godspeed, You Black Emperor!
Gomez
Guster
Hooverphonic
Incubus
Keane
Mindless Self Indulgence
Modest Mouse
Moloko
Morcheeba
Murder By Death
No Doubt
Oingo Boingo
Outkast
Passengers (separate from u2)
The Prodigy
The Rachel's
Scissor Sisters
Smashing Pumpkins
Snow Patrol
Tool
Underworld

.....just to name a few.

The reason the bands that were selected got into it was because of a nomination round before it; and the bands who got the most nominations got put into the competition, at the end of each season we will be doing more nominations to get eight more bands into it, so you'll then get your chance to add more to it

Participation
Round 1: 32
Round 2: 28
Round 3: 26
Round 4: 21
Round 5: 22
Round 6: 20
Round 7: 20
Round 8: 19

I don't like the way the numbers are slowly dropping...


But in good news...The Dresden Dolls got a point

And part of me thinks we need to be merciful and just take Jacques Brel out of the competition now...
