A lot of people have been asking me when the new edition of the 'CRBWC' would finally start (and I'm sorry it took me so long...), but I wanted to make the second edition even better and more fun than the first one!
(In case you wonder what the first one looked like: this is the 'CRBWC 2010'.)

After hours of fun (and stress!) in figuring out the new CRBWC schematics, the gathering of info on the participating bands and fabricating the additional pictures to it all, I'm proud of the final outcome and so, without further delay, let's kick off the 2011 edition of the

Now, some changes have been made to the second edition of this competition, so reading the rules and guidelines is something everyone needs to do, even the voters from last year's edition are advised to...

The format of this World Cup for Classical Rock Bands is based upon the organisation schematics of the Soccer World Cup. It has the same rules as the Soccer World Cup in terms of competitors proceeding through it, but it will follow a few rules of its own too.
Below is a short guide to elaborate the >binding rules< for this competition:


http://farm6.static.flickr.com/5220/5529789379_02f0090bc2_m.jpg

-The 'CRBWC' consist of a total of 24 rounds being presented one at a time.
-Each round will be open for voting for a maximum of 2 weeks or untill a band reaches the points limit.

-Each user of ArmorGames who wants to give a vote has the possibility to vote only once per round.
-All votes given by users are obligated to consist of an elaborated reasoning as to 'why' you choose these two bands. Votes lacking a proper elaborated reasoning, for example: "I like them" or "They rule", will not be counted. Elaborate on why you like them and talk about them, that's the main goal of this competition!
-Different to last year's edition, this time each vote in the group stage of this competition will consist of naming a "First choice" with with a value of 3 points and a "Second choice" with a value of 1 point.
-You only get to vote for two bands in a group. NO double voting for a single band and/or NO voting for more than two bands per group. No exceptions will be made in this matter.
-If two bands reach the limit of 30 points at the same time, the band with the most "First choices" will be declared as the winner of that round.
-The rule explained above, also applies if two bands reach a similar point count for second place at the same time in the 'Group Stage'.
-If, for any reason, two bands reach the limit of 30 points simultaniously and both have an equal amount of first and second choices, the band getting it's 'winning vote' first will be declared the winner.
-Further rounds after the group stage will have a 1 point count for each vote given and an according 10 points limit. Rules for declaring a winner will be applied according to the group stage rules.
-No discussions about the ruling on the outcome of a round are allowed.

Alright, a new battle!

My first vote goes to Aerosmith. Steven Tyler is one of my favorite rock singers, and Joe Perry a very good guitarist. I love their songs like "Eat the Rich", "Draw the Line", and "Toys in the Attic". Overall, a great band.
My second vote is a bit harder to decide, but I'm going with Guns N' Roses. The sound of this groups songs I like better than those of the other bands left to choose from in this pool. Slash is an amazing guitarist, and Axl has a very distinct voice from really any other Rock singer (though he is a headcase).

1st pick is GNR, They have some of the most memorable songs ever (Welcome to the Jungle, Sweet Child of Mine) and songs you can just plain ol' bang your head to (Paradise City is pretty much an anthem of THIS generation for some reason )

Slash & Duff McCagen (probably spelled his last name wrong... srry Duff) Were some of the best in their game, while Axl was a great rock vocalist (Although he's a ... you get the point.).
My favorite classic rock band.

Second is Ozzy. I really don't understand what made Black Sabbath so great, but Ozzy's music is just better in every way. From fast paced classics like Crazy Train and Bark at the Moon, or any of his other various hits I can't think of right now, he's a legend. Also, unlike GNR, he's still relevent today. Scream Like You Mean It is an EPIC song.

There was so many good ones in this category; it was hard to choose. Aerosmith and AC/DC are my runners up.

BTW Mrdaycee, can you give them some credit and have Foreigner SOMEWHERE in this competition? It's too early to beg, but I just wanna make sure you don't forget how awesome these guys are.

Haha, yeah sorry but Rose Tattoo doesn't deserve to share a box with the musicians, even The Kool-Aid Man.

Another classic band that has a great rocker(forgot his name)


Perhaps you mean Bon Scott, their long-late lead singer? Or maybe their guitarist, Angus Young. Or maybe their current lead singer, Brian Johnson? They were a good band, but not who I have picked to go past the round.

My First vote Goes to Ozzy. Simply put: he is the prince of bloody F@$kin darkness! He exemplifies the metal culture and is an absolute icon to the metal world, also, he was one of the founders of Heavy Metal. Ozzy is the man.

Second goes to AC/DC. They are an all around good band who are very popular and good at what they do. They have that very unique sound that separates them from all of the other bands in that group. A ton of AC/DC's songs are used in stadiums and what not, which is a mark of their popularity

MrDayCee is bringing out some great bands! He makes it so difficult to choose.

Well then. My first vote will go to MotorHead since I generally love all their music and how their lead singer sings and how they all play their instruments so very nicely. Motorhead - The Game.
That's my favorite song from them.

The second vote is tough. I wish I could vote for AC/DC, Ozzy Osbourne, Guns 'n Roses and Aerosmith, but sadly; I cannot.
So I must choose Ozzy Osbourne for basically influencing music and many things he has made with Black Sabbath. Just a wonderful singer.

@ Waluigi : MAN! Were you waiting for me to put up the next group or what?! O.O
Never seen a vote come in THAT quickly! LOL =P

@ iamnotironman : Hey! Welcome back!! And thanx for voting again in this year's edition! =)
As for the score updates... just like delossantosj has already answered to you, the score updates will only be presented by the thread's moderators, this in order to keep things clear and simple for other participants and avoid any confusion, ok? And I'm always looking... heheheh...

@ mysteriousmexican666 : Allthough your resoning is a thin as they come, I'll count it in with the score update, but please try to elaborate a little more from now on, ok? Thanx for participating and voting! =)

@ tehpwner : I thought of them too, but the thing is... I've already made all the band lists for this year's edition! But I'm always open for suggestions for the next 'CRBWC'... they can be stated as suggestions at the end of this year's edition, same as it was last year, ok? Just keep them in mind and I'll make a post about it when the time comes...

@ greethan : I'm sorry, but like I stated with another voter's choice before... you have to elaborate your reasoning a bit! What you did is merely post a list of all the songs you like, compared to the songs I provided as examples of the bands... A reasoning is obligated for your vote to get counted people! But elaborate a little about your choices and we'll be in the clear, ok?

As for the score update... this looks promissing! Aerosmith is taking the lead, but a lot of different bands got votes coming in from you guys and that's JUST what I wanted to see!
*two thumbs up* =D
