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

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:
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.
