Artist League Round 1

Welcome to the first round of the Artist League, just a quick recap on the rules before I give you today's fixtures.
To give a result for a match you simple write down the score you want to give the match to the right of the fixture (e.g. U2 vs The Smiths 2-2).
You can select any result from 0-0 to 3-3 (if you do not know the bands please select 0-0)
When giving your results a win by 1 means you like an artist more, a win by 2 you like an artist a lot more and a win by 3 means there is no comparison between the two
It would be easier for me in counting the results if you give a result for each match, if you don't like the bands just go with a 0-0 and much on to the next match up.
There is no requirement of prior participation in the competition so if you feel like joining in now for the first time go right ahead and take part, I encourage it
As usual this match up will last for 48 hours that means that it will end at 3pm on Tuesday, so make sure you have your results in by then.
Also this is just a thread for posting your results if you which to discuss any of today's matches or anything to do with the artist league please use the Discussion thread

The Clash vs Springsteen one is just a Highlighted one, as an attempt to introduce people to some new music

Holy shit! That's a lot of matches all at once!

Okay you said if you do not know the bands please select 0-0... but what if we don't know only one of the bands?

Streets of Philadelphia is an odd choice for introducing people to Springsteen. Not that it isn't a good song, but it's not really illustrative of his normal sound.

This is the first group. I'll add the others later.

Premiership Round 1 Fixtures

The National v Pearl Jam 0-3
I honestly know nothing about The National.

Porcupine Tree v The Who 3-2
While The Who have a much stronger discography, I find Porcupine Tree’s best way better than The Who’s.

The Rolling Stones v David Bowie 1-3
I only like a handful of Stones songs so I’ll give them a point. Bowie is just amazing. Outside is utterly brilliant.

The Smiths v Arcade Fire 3-1
While I like Arcade Fire, they can’t compare to a band that gave us Meat Is Murder and The Queen Is Dead.

Coldplay v Led Zeppelin 3-1
I actually find that AROBTTH and Viva la Vida to be better than Zeppelin record.

The Verve v Radiohead 3-0
I really like The Verve and I think Radiohead is one of the worst bands I have ever heard.

The Clash v Bruce Springsteen 2-2
I’ve only liked one Springsteen record and nothing by The Clash.

Crowded House v R.E.M. 0-3
Never been impressed by Crowded House.

Wilco v The Beatles 0-3
I just can’t see the appeal of Wilco.

Pink Floyd v U2 2-3
U2 is my second favorite band while I think Pink Floyd is my fourth favorite.

1-0 was my way of saying that it was a really tight game, but that the Stones are just a better listen for me. I might not own a ton of Bowie, but I've heard him all my life, and simply prefer the Stones.....I just saw this match as a tight game, with a very late goal from the Stones securing the win.

I'm sure you do, I'm just saying I'd like for you to hear some more.

What have you heard ... Aladdin Sane? I know I sent you like 1 and 5/6 albums or something like that.
