Alright ladies and gents, I'm leaving the decision making up to you. This thread will be dedicated to discussion that will hopefully determine what the topic for next version of survivor.

So far, we've had a mo-town suggestion from CT. Feel free to offer up any other suggestions and discuss them in this thread. I'll leave it open for 10 days to field suggestions, and then hopefully we can get this train rolling.

I think that really only seems to have attracted 3 members on the forum.  I'd personally like something more diversified to incorporate more members.  Just my 2 cents.

^I had to try though.

Sticking in the rock theme, why not do something that strays a bit from the monotonous/average polls like "best frontman" or "best guitarist"...what about something like rock pianist? They always end up underrated and in many bands help create the entire sound. That way you can include solo artists as well as band members.

That or something that heavily contributed to the evolution of rock such as the blues. I'm pretty sure people on here are familiar enough with most blues artists, especially seeing as many of them cross over into some rock territory.

One idea (I suppose I better throw one out since I said something bad about the only suggestion)...maybe a survivor of the top band winners from each of the past survivors of their top songs.

^^ I like that idea. 

Also, what about guitarists, drummer, lead singers (excluding anyone who was in GnR because they'd probably win).  Solo male artists.  Solo female artists.  Rock albums.  Rock album covers (would have to find a way to include a picture).  Songs or a battle of songs by a particular artist.  Some of the more well known artists from the 50's (did we ever do 50's?).  I don't know that enough people would be interested in or familiar with motown or even the blues categories, although good suggestions.

We'll have a vote. The minute you declare your side it seems to automatically lose somehow anyway. It is a bizarre skill.

I think an interesting poll for one day would be a battle of rock long epics.

Perhaps its not broad enough for a survivor thing, but out of mammoth songs everyone knows, Bohemian Rhapsody, Stairway To Heaven, Free Bird, Fade To Black, The End, November Rain etc people usually will have some that they adore with all their heart and some they despise for some reason they just can't tell.

The debate would be interesting.

Plus, Zac would get angry, and besides, thats what this is all about.

Exactly!

The biggest dickhead one would be grand, we could contact the winner to let them know.

Ahahahah, best cowbell use is my favorite.

OR maybe : song that could br improved the most just by adding cowbell.

Or like best new rock band, voting on who we think will bring the sound of old crunchy rock back.

Hello all,

I've been away from the board for quite awhile, but I promise to have something up here within the next couple weeks. That is, if there is still enough interest. Sorry for the extended delay.
