We need more Led Zeppelin voters in here. The idea that Coldplay even touches them is obtuse.

Well that's why you have 2 days to do it and if you want you can do what Screwtape did and summit the divisions one at a time

I'd say it depends on how you rank the other band if you like them a lot then you might as well give them the win but if you don't like them too much then it's probably best to give it as a draw

I was lazy and just went with both bands most popular songs from youtube

The criticisms on this and the other thread are amusing.

I voted 3-3 for Coldplay-Led Zeppelin, reflecting the fact that they're both up high on my list of favorite bands. I suppose I could have voted 3-2, or even 2-2 -- both bands have their flaws, in my view, compared to my absolute favorites.

This is an interesting new way of voting and I suppose I'll be tweaking things as I go along. If I were voting on a scale of 0-3, for example, I'd definitely give Wilco a 3. But since they were going up against the Beatles, who is right up there with U2 for myabsolute favorite, do I need to knock Wilco down a peg or two? I ended up scoring it 3-2 for the Beatles, but I'm not sure if I calibrated it right. I just wouldn't feel right giving Wilco a 1 or a 0 in any event.

That was the reason for a limit of 3 in the scoring system; I felt that if the limit was 5 people would just use set scores for each band and it wouldn't change at all but with a limit of 3 you have to think about what scores you are giving a lot more

I've never enjoyed anything in my life more than voting 3-0 for Avril Lavigne over the Doors in this Internet music competition.
