The 2018 Hardcore Husky Battle of the Bands - Presented by YellowSnow's Record Shoppe

YellowSnow’s Record Shoppe would like to announce an Old Man Music, shit polling piece de resistance, The 2017 Hardcore Husky Battle of The Bands.

- 64 of the all-time great rock groups and solo artists from the 1960’s to the present (pop, R&B, country, hip hop, to be saved for another off-season)

- 4 groupings based on eras – i.e., 1960’s; early 1970’s; late 1970’s to mid 80’s; and late 80’s to the present - with artists seeded #1 to #16 in each grouping

- Each week we’ll cover a different round of voting, so think March Madness with your favorite rock artists until we crown a champion.

I tried to be as objective as possible with the seedings, using criteria like Rolling Stone’s 100 greatest artists, # All Music Guide 5 Star albums per artist, etc. All the being said, Jake Browing Sucks, some of your favorite artists (and mine too) didn’t make the cut. Oh well, they probably weren’t probably good enough to make a deep run anyhow. Thanks in advance for playing and hope you enjoy! Also shootout to @Tequilla for coming up with this idea; if it ends up sucking we can blame him.

    *Late 1970's - Mid 1980's

    But, yes, I do love the early 70's. Hopefully, I spelled all the names of the bands correctly.

    I did my best to include as much 1990s as I could but chinvariably the mor one tries to make room for the more recent decades, you start losing space for the great acts of the early and later 1970's. While there are a lot of band of the 2000s and 2010s that I dig and listen to regularly, few truly stand out to me as great enough for 64 band/artist tournament.

    Consider the percentages by decade of the albums in the Rolling Stone 500 GOAT list:


    1950s - 10 albums (2.0%)
    1960s - 105 albums (21.0%)
    1970s - 186 albums (37.2%)
    1980s - 84 albums (16.8%)
    1990s - 73 albums (14.6%)
    2000s - 40 albums (8.0%)
    2010s - 2 albums (0.4%)

    This should be a lot of fun with some great matchups and debate

    The thought of a Jimi vs Beach Boys matchup in Round 2 is tremendous

    The Guess Who and Steppenwolf always struggle to make the cut on anyone's 'best bands from the 60s' list.

    I'm definitely not seeing all the #1 seeds making it to the Final 4.

    Both good bands. Just can't see putting them ahead of anyone listed above. Maybe Steppenwolf could have gotten a nod over Jefferson Airplane, but certainly no one else in the 1960's region.

    I’d put Jefferson Airplane ahead of Steppenwolf

    Sadly, neither Keith Emerson aka @WilburHooksHands or Frank Zappa aka @YellowSnow made it in. @Dennis_DeYoung did, however.

    Agree. I see two #1 seeds with a pretty clear path to the Final 4. But there's probably a 4 or 5 seed that will make it in. Perhaps even a 16 taking down a 1.

    I love Iggy Pop. And I love the Stooges. NO ONE HERE LOVES THEN MORE THAN ME. I couldn't make it work out, OK.

    Rolling Stone came out in 1967. That must have nothing to do with the fact 58% of the albums chosen were from the 60’s and 70’s.
    Yes, they are old geezers. Still, they have 103 albums from the 90s and 00s on their list which is chinpressive considering the competition from the 60s and 70s.
