The Music Game

Postby bobbo » Sun Jul 05, 2009 10:01 am UTC

This is a fun game that gets played on quite a few sites. Was very surprised that it wasn't played on here too.

Here's how it works, you get two votes for adding and two votes for subtracting. You take two tallys away from the band you like the least and add two tallys to the band you like the most. When a band reaches zero, you remove the full line. The last band standing wins. No consecutive voting (that'd spoil it!). If you finish a round, you have to start the next one by creating a new list of (around 8?) bands.

Here's the list for round one:

[10] Explosions in the Sky
[10] Metric
[10] Yann Tiersen
[10] Why?
[10] Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds
[10] Air
[10] Aphex Twin
[10] Plushgun

Note: I searched and couldn't find anything similar to this, sorry if this kind of thing already exists here. Also, I couldn't decide whether to put this here (Music section) or the Forum Games section. Mods, please move it if it's in the wrong place

Why don't you just make them all five and you add and subtract one. Beats me. Anyway, I only know Metric and Nick Cave so I don't want to subtract from a band I don't know.

[10] Explosions in the Sky
[12] Metric
[10] Yann Tiersen
[10] Why?
[8] Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds
[10] Air
[10] Aphex Twin
[10] Plushgun

It's been done here before. Hold while I find it.

Actually, no.. Fuck it. You provided no method of adding a new band because your choices suck. While I'm assuming I could just go
[2]Misfits as my vote, you didn't specifically spell out such rules in advance, leaving the rest of us confused. Or, more likely, there is no mechanism for adding a new band to the list as you mention rounds.

There's also the pre-existing Best Song Ever thread which, I'll grant you, isn't the Best Band Ever thread, it's close enough. We could have another one that's basically the same thing but different on a detail, or we could just kill it now.

And while at least this does have the possibility of actual discussion, it's so far just another goddamn list thread.

So I'm going to just dump this over in Forum Games. There it will either thrive, or die. Either way, it's probably where it should have started in the first place.

Do we have do vote down a band, as well, or can we just vote up? There aren't any bands here that I don't like, most of them I just don't know.

I honestly don't get this kind of game. The sum of points from all bands remains constant through the whole thing. It would make more sense if you had to, for example, subtract TWO points and add ONE; this guarantees that the game will eventually end, without taking an excruciatingly long time. But then again, that's a very random selection of bands lacking an overall theme, there's no explicit mechanism for adding new bands, the whole thing would last forever and honestly what the hell why goodness why.

Can I pull a "rocks fall, everybody dies" card?

Agree with a lot of the above posters. Get some more controversy to start us off like Lady Gaga (oh god...), or like Dream Theater or, hell, go classic rock theme on us with Led Zep v. Pink Floyd. Suggest Nuke it and start over with genres?

I demand a rule rewrite. Not many of us know those bands, so it would be better to have the posters choose by adding 2 points. On that note, we need a method of adding bands. And as Burrito said, we might want to rethink it with genres instead.

Maybe add myspace/website to each of the bands...?

I've never heard of Aphex Twin, and I have nothing against profanity in music, but when your entire intro-skit is just different combinations of "mutherfucker" "nigger" and "shit", with "goddamn" thrown in every once in a while, you don't deserve to be called an artist. not to mention how much of their video is just people rubbing themselves.

explosions in the sky is pretty chill though. always like instrumental rock type stuff.
