The Cure. Though I don't think it will happen, I couldn't sleep nights if I didn't try my best to shoot down the DD pansies :)

Duran Duran. The Cure had more better albums but those first two DD albums are unstoppable for this genre.

DD. Even though The Cure have some memorable tracks, Duran Duran is/was just such a big part of my life, that I have to vote for them.

Get your votes in gang because if I'm bored in work today, I'm gonna do the finals poll sometime before I go home so not much time yet. You DD girls might wanna get your votes in fast :)

+1 for Duran Duran . . . seeing them in Biloxi (@ Grand Casino) several years ago was a lot of fun.

Great....midnight is when all of the makeup wearing goth freaks come out. I'm sensing they may sneak ahead under cover of the shadows.


Now, Bauhaus, THERE'S a group.

I used to have a cool Bauhaus book with a picture of Peter Murphy and Nick backstage.

I like Bauhaus, and i like Peter Murphy. too bad all of that goth/fan-boy bullshit has really tainted my enjoyment of listening to them.

I wonder who would win between Duran Duran & The Birthday Party?

I wouldn't want that to happen. I love Duran Duran, but the Birthday Party are too fucking cool.

Birthday Party may be my favourite rock band of all time. I can't stand either Duran Duran or The Cure, sorry, but if forced I'd say The Cure, because I heard a live version of 'Killing an Arab' which didn't suck.

Well, Bill sent me a PM, asking me to continue this, before the er.....weirdness that occurred. So, as much as I am biased toward Duran X2, it is after midnight, and Duran Duran beats the Cure's ass back into that tiny room they shot that one video for.

There was no weirdness. Just emotion being expressed. I know this seems awkward to you stiff north americans, but emotions are natural.

You missed Duran Duran beating The Cure

Americans will get the last laugh... Justin Timberlake will tour Sweden and your country will collapse with awe at his awesomeness.

Swedish Joe should love Justin Timberlake, it seems like it would appeal to the Euro Disco fan inside him

You gonna start crying now, Swede? If america ever invaded you guys, you'd fold faster than the French.

Mark, don't insult the French. I was talking to Swedish Joe and I said something about running like the French from a bath and he got all upset.
