The Greatest American Rock Band Run-Off

The Polls Have Officially Closed.  No more votes will accepted.


7:45 pm.  Sunday, January 11, 2009.

I have tallied up the results from all of the top 10 lists.  103 bands were mentioned.  Of those, 51 received only 1 votes.  As a result, these bands were eliminated.  It would be far too difficult to do a run off with these 51 groups, so my only other option is to go down to a bracket of 32 (I'm not dealing with the complications and headaches of bye weeks, etc.  32 in nice, neat, and easy). So to get down to 32, here is what I did:

There were 7 bands who received two votes  They were eliminated.  This brings us down to 45.

There were 9 bands that received 3 votes.  That brings us down to 36.  We're getting closer.

There were 9 bands who received 4 votes.  These 9 bands will be in a run-off to see who gets in.  Here's how it will work.  Choose just one of these 9 bands.  The top 5 vote getters will be in.  The bottom 4 will be eliminated.  In case of ties for the last spot, I will be flipping a coin. Here are the 9 bubble bands:

Foo Fighters

Little Feat

Doobie Brothers

Jefferson Airplane


Crosby, Stills, Nash, and Young

Steve Miller Band

Blue Oyster Cult

REO Speed Wagon

All votes must be in by 9 pm EST on  Sunday, January 11.

For the curious, The Doors led all voting with 32, followed by Aerosmith with 27 votes.
