Yay for The Beatles. Great bands get great positions ;3.

I would've liked Led Zeppelin to win though. They're almost as influential as the beatles, and I enjoy their music far more.

Thanx for the update Google567, but the thruth is... I've been checking in on this competition almost daily to see what's been happening here! ;)

Maybe call it denial on my favorite band not winning it...
maybe call it hope to see at least ONE more vote for them coming in...
maybe call it sadness that this competition (my precious) has finally come to an end...

but hey...

"All good things come to an end..."

So, the final score for this final in the 'CRBWC 2010' shows us :

I'll be posting a last round up on all the bands who participated in it and the final places they achieved on the list later, so if you're wondering where they ended up, hang in there! ;)

Cool. Too bad I didn't get here in time. But I would have just been adding on to the shellacking. Van Halen is a great band, but I think #2 is a little too high for my taste.

PERSONAL NOTE:
I've enjoyed moderating this thread VERY MUCH! So a big thank you to all the users who have participated in this competition is not more than really deserved to mention! I had a great time and enjoyed reading all your reasonings to your votes and (with that) the surprises they sometimes presented in terms of bands being pushed through to the next round and (consequently) bands being left behind and eliminated...

It will take a little time, but for those that have enjoyed this competition-thread, just hang in there a little while and (most of all) stay focused, because a 'CRBWC 2011' will surely be launched next year! I'll be looking forward to reading your reasonings again! Hope to catch you there!! ;)

Well... there will be a new edition next year! =)

So everyone can vote for their favorite band once more... only this time I will be including more bands! ;)

Feel free to suggest bands that are not listed in this year's edition on my profile's messenger and I'll have a look to see whether they can be added! No guarantees though... ;)
