    i thought that for a second, but its assuming a lot. That their new album is going to be markedly better than their first one, but there is no doubt that its an incredibly talented band.

    This will crack this board up, but remember the audience . If you google best new bands of the 21st centry, you get a list of rock bands anyway, that is as far as I checked the links out . Here is the list in order ..



    Audioslave

    Fall out boy

    The white stripes

    The killers

    muse
    Have Another Hit Of Colorado Sunshine

    Official ruling on Of Montreal is going to be: we'll allow it. My reasoning being that there's no way any significant number of us had ever heard of them in 2003.

    no no no, you can't do that. you said first album, not when they first became popular. that changes things entirely.

    No, I mean are they in contention as in: is there really any reason we'd have to make a ruling on them, because I find it hard to believe they have a chance of competing for this spot.

    Also, the rules were not etched in stone--they are being defined to fit the intentions of the question best. Trial and error, people.

    Does Metric count? I wasn't sure because Grow Up and Blow Away was recorded in 2001, but not released until 2007. I know the song by the same name was in that Polaroid commercial in 2002.

    MGMT? Seriously? Their album has a couple good songs... but overall it is mediocre.

    Don't change the rules, Randy, or this thread will be as ruined as that rule-free festival contest.

    Rage, don't worry about it--they're good music, you won't like it.

    Way to remind me to bump that, btw...

    They would be ranked pretty high on my list.

    What's new? But anyway, their first album came out in '97, so even with some wiggle room they're not exactly last 5 years.

    Were you aware of them at the beginning of 2003?

    Last year someone asked me who Underworld was. Doesn't make them a new act, either.

    I think you have to go by when the first album is released. I heard of Of Montreal in 2000, so here is no way in hell they should count.
