Artist League Discussion Thread

So after days of gruelling nominations, 80 bands have been chosen to compete in the first season of the Artist League. The Bands and Artists will be spread out over four divisions (The Premiership, Championship, and Third Division A & B), at the end of each season several bands will be promoted and relegated from each league.

How this will work is that each round every band will play a "match" against another band and this will carry on like this for the 19 rounds of each season. Rounds will be held three times a week on a Sunday, Tuesday and Thursday or a Monday, Wednesday and Friday; each round will run for 48 hours except the final one of each week which will run for 72 hours.

How matches will be played is like this; each person will give a match a score from anywhere between 0-0 and 3-3; a draw would be suited for when you don't know the bands or when you think they are equally good/bad; a win by one would mean you like someone a little better, a win by 2 would be like a lot better and a win of 3 would mean there was no competition between them.

Here is an example of how the system will work

Britney Spears vs Avril Lavigne 2 - 1 (Meaning I prefer Britney Spears over Avril Lavigne; read in to that as you will )
Bloc Party vs Morrissey 0 - 3 (Meaning I think there is no comparison between these two artists)
Van Halen vs New Order 1 - 3 (Meaning I prefer New Order greatly over Van Halen)

The results will be calculated by me adding up all the results; to give a final result for each match up which will be added to a table which will be posted in this thread at the end of every round.

And just to clear this up in case there is any confusion, anybody is allowed to give their results for the rounds regardless of whether or not they took part in the nominations or any previous rounds.

Another feature of each round will be a Highlighted Match this will be a randomly selected match from any of the four leagues. The Match selected will get a youtube video for each band featured in the post for the round, in an attempt to introduce people to new music and new bands.

If anyone has any questions about how this will work don't be afraid to ask.

And now for the tables...

Pulp and the Sex Pistols in the same division is blasphemy.

Well maybe one of them will be promoted or relegated and that will no longer be a problem


Come on how could we not have Britney in this, honestly?

No, but seriously, fuck the Sex Pistols.


Awesome job on the charts. I'm very much looking forward to this competition. I must have boring tastes, because 9 of my 10 choices made the cut.
