Quoted from Diospinball:
Well, I'll just say not having Firepower at the number 1 metal album of the year. Means that list is full of crap.
That's why we did not have a poll, lol
Pinsiders would simply vote for the band they listened to in high school, and then it would be over.
Same as the upcoming Grammys.
Old men will bltch: "I don't even watch the Grammys! It's a bunch of black guys I've never heard of! They never have any bands I like winning anything!"
Then you ask them "What artist had a release in 2018 that you felt was slighted by the Grammys?"
And they answer "2018?? I don't know, I mean, I just like the old stuff. Hell, I have not bought any new music in 20 years. Oh wait, I did get the Beatles box set.....but I guess that's not really new....."
Educate yourself, so you are not the old man at the coffee machine in your office:
