Strider Posted March 17, 2011 Share Posted March 17, 2011 Okay, so I usually am the first to complain about whatever stupid poll Rolling Stone or NME runs about "greatest this or that", but I realize that there are many here, especially the younger generations, who do love to show their love for Led Zeppelin by voting in whatever poll is happening at the moment. Well, kiddos, that moment now happens to be at the sports network, ESPN, where one of their radio hosts, Colin Cowherd, has made up a Rock Bracket much in the manner of the NCAA Basketball brackets. It appears the voting has been going on for some time as they are in the 3rd round already. Led Zeppelin has made it past Nickelback(WTF!) and the Allman Brothers and are now doing battle with Metallica. Queen is duking it out with the Rolling Stones, Pearl Jam is trying to upset the Beatles(as if) and it's the Mods(The Who) vs. the Psychedelic Freaks(Pink Floyd) along with several other battles...AC/DC vs. Nirvana; Guns n Roses vs. Van Halen. Here's the link to the bracket(you will notice some curious omissions...Nickelback, 311 and Creed, but NO Radiohead, Yes or CCR?)where you can vote and see the results of the earlier rounds: ESPN's Herd Rock Brackets I should think Led Zeppelin wouldn't need much help in defeating Metallica but you never know about sports audiences...the demographic probably skews towards that Metallica/G n R/AC/DC crowd. So if you like participating in these things...get out and vote. Vote early and often. I gotta think Led Zeppelin makes the semi-finals at least.
