    Well done @Minty

    Offspring are a band I wasn't overly aware of prior to this and enjoyed a good few of their songs.

    Was always gonna be tough to better a proper big gun like that!

    Well done Minty! Unlucky Heb!
    Green Day had a lot more quality tracks to choose from in the end and there was no doubt in the end since Heb had used the best Offspring songs in previous rounds which is usually what happens.

    Minty you really loved me this BOTB, was up against Green Day in every fecking round!:giggle1:

    @Minty

    Green Day have just announced a Greatest Hits album! Good timing.

    No Jesus of Suburbia.:eek:

    To be fair, they could easily include most of Dookie, American Idiot and even Nimrod, on a GH album.

    Loads of tracks missing. I only used to buy a GH album if I was only just getting into the band.

    Sorry my dear BotB friends (Taz in general) that I didn´t vote last round. Just to be blunt...I didn´t feel like it. I will be sitting the next edition out too. Had a ball most of the times, but might be getting a bit bored latest SQ/BotB editions. Nothing personal and probably get back the edition after the next one if there will be one.

    Maybe..I dunno. People and especially Taz putting so much time in it...the least I can do is explain why. Have been a part of every single edition if I'm not mistaken and loved it. Have discovered quite a few bands I didn't know and even got to love a band I did know but didn't care about before (Talking Heads), but the slim chance of a lesser known band get beyond two or three rounds got me a bit bored tbh. Know it's all about personal taste but had a few doubts about some votings (Not only on my bands/artists mind you) in quite a few editions.

    It's ok @Vinnie BBQ and understand where you are coming from, and equally there is always a desire to discover unfamiliar artists and for these lesser known get a chance; to which end can't recall if I had posted this when SQ was running, however, had I won one of those, my theme would have been based on videos with less than 50,000 views on youtube. That way it would have made people give a shot to songs and artists that are not multi-million selling artists.

    Though, if you are wanting to take that is fair enough, or if everyone wants a bit of a break, that is fair enough also. I am happy to continue, but equally anyone is welcome to run one of these BotB. I don't have a monopoly on these, just as Mafia has grown well past just my hosting and design. So if you want to run one instead of participate, Vinnie, go for it. :50:

    Otherwise, was contemplating doing a female vocalist/bands w/ f vocalists edition. There have been few and far between since the original edition, and even then that one did not feature all female vocalists.

    Nothing you can do to change how someone votes. For what it's worth, I listen to all the songs and vote according to the song on that round, despite my opinion of the band. Snow Patrol are a band I can't stand, but I still gave them a fair chance in this edition, as an example.

    Maybe the next BOTB can have a criteria that means people have to pick lesser known bands?

    By no means I think I can do it better, or even say anything has to be changed or even want to. That's not what I'm saying cause Taz (and anyone who did SongQuest and Minty who took over for while, I think you're doing one * of a job.) Don't think anything should be changed as you probably would lose a lot of people too, I'll just take a break for one round (or the theme will be to hard to resist) :50:

    Bands with a female vocalist would be a good one, me thinks.

    Female solo artists should be included too, not just bands.
