My first choice would be Aerosmith. They have the widest variety of all the groups you've posted, and I find their music to be the most listenable.

My second choice is AC/DC. They have some great songs, which are also catchy. Catchiness is something I look for in songs, because otherwise I just forget the song altogether.

@ Stinger_Maniac : Hey! A new voter joined the ranks! Welcome! And thanx for the vote of confidence to keep track of this competition! =)

@ iamnotironman : Officially (according to thread rules) this group closes at midnight 04/14/2011, buuuut... since I'll be attending a concert that night (tommorow) and I won't be back home untill the middle of the night, it will be open for voting untill midnight 04/15/2011! One more day to get your votes in people! ;)

@ Armpit : Welcome back man! And thanx for voting in this year's edition! Good to see last year's participants return here! =D

With 3 more people stating their votes, a little shift has occured! AC/DC is now back in 3rd, passing Guns n' Roses, and Aerosmith has made a small gap of 6 points to second place runner-up Ozzy!

@ Luksy2 : You barely made it with your votes coming in and the reasoning was pretty thin, but it didn't make any difference for the final ranking of this group, so I decided to count the first choice you stated, but... if you could give me your second choice for correct rankings as well, I'd be grateful! =) But remember to state a solid reasoning for futeure votes, ok? ;)

A somewhat surprising ending in this group, I must say... it failed to reach the maximum votes limit (which I assumed it would be able to, because of the diversity in bands featured in it), BUT... this year Aerosmith managed to proceed to the next round, where they failed to do so in last years edition! And Ozzy managed to take second place during his debut this year! Excellent! =D

New battle YAY! So my votes go to

1. U2: U2 is one of the biggest rock bands of all time. Bono's excellent singing combined with The Edge's extremely unique guitar sound made them stand out in the crowd. Plus, they were incredibly influential to the way that concerts are preformed with their stage set ups and other things.

2: Def Leppard: I particularly like the singer's voice in Def Leppard, and their songs like "Photograph" and "Rock of Ages" are pretty catchy. Plus, it's pretty impressive for a one armed drummer to be as good as he is.

First vote most definitely goes to Rainbow, a talented band with one of the best voice ever: DIO. If I may add my personal two favourite songs: Kill the King (their greatest rock song) and The Temple of the King (most beautiful ballad).

Second vote goes to U2 for their fame, although it pains me to give them one more vote than they already have... I feel like Rainbow won't make it, and this saddens me.
