    In light of the latest loss of an online vote, I think we've got to get our collective ass in gear. I don't like seeing VH lose to the fucking Eagles and Def Leppard, do you?

    No, I didn't think so. But that's just what's been happening, lately.

    We have the power to change this, though.

    I know some of you don't care about the votes, or don't think they matter. You're wrong. Anytime VH can win a poll, it's one more chance for the band to be recognized.

    If we had won the Rock Show vote, "Unchained" would have been played. Some kids who were watching the show, who might never have heard of VH, lost out on being introduced to the greatest rock band ever because we failed them by simply not voting enough.

    Instead of "Unchained" the kids got to see Def Leppard's "Pour Some Sugar On Me."

    Some people think the VH1 poll was rigged. I don't. Why would VH1 want a Def Leppard video played on Rock Show? They obviously wouldn't. The host of the show, Scott Ian of Anthrax, was embarrassed when he announced the winner.

    Nothing was rigged. If anything, we know how to vote multiple times, so there's no use in talking about ANYTHING being rigged.

    We just flat out lost.

    But if we win... Ahhh, if we win, VH gets recognized as having more than just an average fan base on the Net. What's that do? Well, it could sway whoever's got the poll on their website to cover VH more closely so we pay attention to their site.

    Also, if someone sees that VH won an online poll, they're more likely to check the band out than if VH loses to, lets say.... Hmmmm... Def fucking Leppard. LOL. No one wants to check out the band that LOSES the vote.

    Just some reminders about what we can do to ensure a VH victory in every online poll :

    1.) Anytime anyone comes across a poll on the Net with VH in it, post about it here in the "Main Discussion" fourm so the rest of us can jump in and help.

    2.) Online radio stations that have votes will be more likely to play VH if they win than if they lose. Always a good thing to get more Halen on the radio.

    3.) Always post a direct link to the vote posted within the thread that's started about it so we don't have to go looking to find it.

    4.) Those of you with cable modems or DSL connections can vote as quickly as you can click in some instances, so you guys and gals can play an even more important role.

    5.) We should be able to win the votes just through the number of people we have here on the forums, alone. But we also have our brothers in arms from http://www.dlrarmy.com to help us.

    Whenever we find out about an online vote, someone make sure to start a thread about it there so they can join in.

    VH fans are loyal, nuts, and fucking die-hard. We're given the opportunity to show this in each and every online vote we find out about.

    Rock on!

    Even though =VH= is my main band, I wouldn't care if the Eagles won them over. They have some good songs and are some darn good musicians. =VH= are just as good, if not better, but I'd rather the Eagles beat them than Def Leppard!

    This is it exactly. The onus is on us. We choose if VH wins or loses. No one else. We've got the links, the army, and http://www.vanhalenlive.com too. (Sorry about forgetting, guys )

    That's three boards of fans to spread the word to about online votes.

    sorry guys. i still gotta defend def lep man. they're my second favorite band. they've got some serious talent. as for pour some sugar on me being a good rock tune, well that's pretty dumb, but def's still got skills.

    anyway, with that off my chest, i still think that it's important to vote, i've voted in the past couple votes, and it's definitely important to win the vh/dlr reunion vote. that's so important. so, definitely get out and vote. good post DIF, except for bashing def leppard... yeesh.
