How was it 2-2 with R.E.M. and the boss. It ended up 10-6 to R.E.M. in terms of votes. Should that not be a win for them? Just wondering how the votes are counted.

Franz Ferdinand
Garbage
Keane
No Doubt
Snow Patrol

I'd like to see a few of those added. Hey i'm only new here to this, but I don't think you could add Passengers, who only have one album. I'd like to see Tori Amos added, Rage Against The Machine, The White Stripes perhaps?, Green Day?....maybe I'm starting to get to popular

From the 19 votes overall there were 40 for REM and 34 for Bruce; it's a draw if the bands are within 6 points overall of each other in the Premier; and within 5 points in the other divisions. The result then is just the average (inflated in lower divisions) edited slightly to add a draw or remove a draw.

Well Passengers could get in if enough people nominated them; we'll have a nomination round for 8 new bands after the end of the first season.
