I don’t know how Kanye got such a low score, crazy antics aside Kanye is a great song writer and producer. He really digs the creates to sample music parts from. Just sad how the crazy shit he does makes people doubt his musical genius. 

Probably just Gen X/Millennial white dudes stuck in the 80s isn't his core demographic. Or maybe we were voting on his new album early.

The overall results are actually shaping up how I expected.

Especially the later ones where we don't have dra600n voting zeros for everything that isn't Metallica.

Based on that list, I think Metallica is the only one I would have given a 10 to.

Voting Metallica 10 is fine, I get it.

Voting everything else zero because it isn't 80s thrash metal means you need to expand your Spotify playlist a little more.

I didn't know he legitimately voted everything a 0. I think the lowest I went was a 2 or 3.

I'm not sure how it would fare here, but I don't see any country and the pop representation seems low. I would be interested to see how Blake Shelton, Luke Bryan, Britney Spears, Taylor Swift, Avril Lavigne, etc would do.

I like your selection of bands and how you run this Reed, but what this list cruelly lacks of is bands from the 60's (or even the 50's). I think the oldest band you selected is Earth, Wind and Fire which formed in 1969. Gotta gives some love to the Rock N' Roll Golden Age.

I was wondering where Led Zeppelin, Jimi Hendrix, The Rolling Stones, The Beatles, The Doors, etc were.

Believe me, I have been very close to doing The Beach Boys, The Four Tops, etc.

But a lot of the older groups have gotten lower responses.

I figured we would see a few of those sprinkled in as we go.   Not sure what criteria is used to select the next participant though (fancy dartboard?)

There's some other genres people should try. Doo-wop is a favorite of mine, even though I wasn't around during its heyday.

I saw the Beach Boys at Great American Ballpark. Brian Wilson is still active although I don't think I've heard any of his music on regular radio.

I try to mix up genre, era, male/female, race, etc.

And artists that are polarizing if possible.  And will get at least 25 votes

Last thing I heard from his solo work was the song playing in Police Academy while they were chasing the skateboarders through the mall.

I have a list and narrow it down.  Last night I made a snap decision between 2pac, Biggie, and NWA.  Briefly considered Marky Mark and Vanilla Ice.
