Interference's top 10 bands results

Ok first i'll apologize for how long it took me to tally everything up, so sorry about that, but i felt like there was no good way to attack those lists, it was very time consuming, and i wasn't going to go out of my way to get them done as fast as possible. Second I tried to be as thorough and accurate as possible, especially concerning the bands that made the top 10, however it is possible i made a mistake, so if anyone finds a mistake that changes the order of the list, please post the list adjusted accordingly. Ok here it is

1.U2 (581 tallies)
2.The Beatles (269)
3.Radiohead (215)
4.Pink Floyd (168)
5.The Rolling Stones (80)
6.Pearl Jam (73)
7.Led Zeppelin (67)
8.Red Hot Chili Peppers
9.R.E.M./Oasis(64, tie)

Ok so even the list only goes up to 9 that was the top 10 bands.

Random Statistics:
-I took 234 bands listed into account when tallying the scores

-I found 23 bands with just one tally (not 100% sure that's true, but that's what i saw)

-Only 31 of the 234 bands got 20 or more tallies

I probably could have just made that up off the top of my head after years of reading this forum!

Seriously, though, good work to you. Once I tallied up everyone's favorite Radiohead songs, and it was a lot of fun to do.

"Who buys U2 records anyway? It's just music for plumbers and bricklayers. Bono, what a slob. You'd think with all that climbing about he does, he'd look real fit and that. But he's real fat, y'know. Reminds me of a soddin' mountain goat."

I can live with that list

Even though I think Led Zeppelin are grossly overrated, but that's ok.

Hell, this is good stuff.

Nice job taking the time and effort.

As far as the top 10, slightly surprised that Oasis would be up there, but not totally surprised. Maybe a little surprised the Stones made it that high, but they have been around since dirt, so I guess not so much.

That's a damn good list though. Not a total crap band to bee seen, good job Interference.
