ASV Rock and Roll Hall of Fame: Soundtrack Voting
(New category needed)

[voting has finished in this category, please see HoF link below for winner]

And a bonus: Downloads of three songs representing various soundtracks.

Faith No More and Boo-Ya Tribe - Another Body Murdered (Judgment Night)
Incubus and DJ Greyboy -Familiar (Spawn)
The Jam - Absolute Beginners (Grosse Point Blank)

Still haven't decided on a new category. Surely someone can come up with something good?

And if you people don't help me come up with something today, I will be forced to bring out the category 'BEST BAND TO HAVE GONE THROUGH THREE LEAD SINGERS, THOUGH NEITHER OF THEM WERE AS GOOD AS THE ORIGINAL AND, IN FACT, THE LAST ONE SUCKED ASS" OR: "BEST BAND WHOSE NAME RHYMES WITH MAN WHALIN"

Comments

Best cover of a song that is better than the original.

Ooooh, thats a good one !

How about best one hit wonder ?
Best Satirical/Comedy/Novelty song ?

Both of those should start some furious debate.

(BTW, the Singles soundtrack is awesome - never watched the movie)

best non-performance music video?

Well, since the answer to both of those categories is Van Halen, voting would be quick and painless.

Category of Best stage name? Darby Crash, Elvis Costello, etc...

ooh forget you were looking at new wave stuff... the video thing could go well there. Duran Duran has that kinda beat, tho. their vids were awesome. "nightboat" even had zombies in it. teh heh.

Most nattily dressed? Dorkiest name of a new wave band to have a top 10 hit? biggest hair (not in the metal category. Think The Alarm).?

I do like the non-performance video suggestion.

What happened to best use of a rock song in a movie?

I'm getting to that....

Best/worst live album
Best single from an album that otherwise sucked
Best/worst musical perfomance on Saturday Night live
Most ridiculous/lamest band name

Most Undisciplined Band

(As I sit here listening to Deuce, by KISS), best band in makeup that isn't KISS.

Best Song Named After A Chick

Best Rock song that some asshole kept playing over and over on the jukebox until you felt like screaming.

CATEGORY: Band you wished played at your wedding.
