I don't know if this was already asked, but... how did you come up with the bands in the "competition"? There are certainly others (White Stripes) that were left out (RHCP). I'm sure I could name more. Some of them I've never even heard of

We had a nominations thread were everyone nominated 10 bands they wanted to see in the competition. The ones who got the most nominations were placed in the highest divisions. Half of the bands in the Third Division are a random selection of the bands who received 1 nomination so that might explain why they are so unknown.

I would like to state for the record, I have no fucking idea what's going on with the scoring, but I like the voting process.

How is Wilco @ -5?

So their defence sucks. You know, I've been telling Tweedy for years to watch the hips when he plays D, not the feet or the eyes - THE HIPS, TWEEDY, WATCH THE GODDAMN HIPS!

Yup Wilco are having some serious defence problems and aren't too hot on the attack either at the moment, unlike Queen who seem to be off to an amazing start

Very tough start for Wilco going up against U2 and The Beatles in their first two matches, though. They'll pick up as they play against some of the weaker teams in their division.
