  1. Yeah it was an interesting result, reasonably fair overall but I have one or 2 gripes:

    1. That Anastacia got any votes

    2. That both the Mooney Suzuki and Har Mar Superstar didn't make it into the top 40

    3. That The Killers didn't win. I don't like the song but I drew them in the sweepstake and wanted to collect.

  2. Why no Hope Of The States? Otherwise a very good list:

    34 geniune greats, and some recognition for great tracks Dogs Die… and the Futureheads.
    4 I don't really give a fig about much, sorry, most dance music is lost on me (though I love the Basement Jaxx)...

    …and Maroon 5 who go on the List Of Bands I Hated From The Moment They First Appeared alongside Jet. Trust me, when we're all slagging them off in two years time I was doing it first.
