    Default Van Halen Final Four

    With all of these "vs." threads, I think we should have our own March Madness, with a tournament of Van Halen songs. Then we get to vote on which songs advance to the next round, and so on, until we have a champion.
    I know it sounds kind of ridiculous, but apparently we have nothing better to do lately.
    I'm not sure I'd be able to orchestrate something like that, though.

    ...just a thought...

    Good idea!

    Good idea! But how would we rate the winners? Just strictly on how many votes the song gets? We would have to put a deadline for each round on when is the end of voting.

    Yeah, you just need to set up a whole bunch of poles, but it would probably end up being a huge pain in the ass because someone would have to keep track of everything.

    I know it would be a pain in the ass to set up, but it would be interesting.

    Eeeek the heaviest of the Roth era VS the heaviest of the Sammy era....that would be a hard pick, I'd use a poll to track it all. Pick 1 song from each album to represent the album and then put the albums of equal greatness against eachother. For example, Ain't Talkin' About Love (VH1) VS Hot For Teacher (1984). The DLR records should go against eachother and the Sammy and Gary CDs should go (that would make it 6 for each era, not using the greatest hits albums and LRHRN), then the final song of those two will be used for a final vote! Just my 2 cents.

    Sammy/Gary would only have 5 albums: 5150,OU812,FUCK,Balance, and III.

    I like it, however, if we were to take the best song off of each album, then there'd be a debate over each song. For instance, some might say Hot for Teacher, and some might say Panama. And, VHI, forget it.
    I thought if we were to make 4 brackets, each consisting of 3 albums. So it'd be bracket !: I,II,WACF/ Bracket 2: FW,DD,1984/ Bracket 3: 5150,ou812,FUCK/ Bracket 4: Balance, III, and the last spot would be made up of the 2 Twister songs, 2 BOVI songs, 3 BOBW songs, maybe Won't Get Fooled Again.
    Since it would be impossible to have seedings, we'll just list them in order. For instance Bracket 1 would be RWTD vs. Eruption/ YRGM vs. ATBL and so on...then you would eventually have the top song from each album more or less unless an album has an odd number of songs on it...

    Where did I put that Advil??

    There was a poll like this on the last board but unfortunately it was erased by that good damn hacker.. I can't remember who kept the score though..

    I ran one of these here a few years ago. It was pretty cool I had seeds for all the songs and everything. I believe Unchained won fairly easily if I remember correctly.
