I think I apologised to B before about being frightfully rude while drunk about their selection. Have a well merited vote to make up for it.

A is classic rock forum stuff, great though most of it is. B has a breadth that appeals to me more and a lot of quality.

It does kind of look that way at first but i think it sneaks in a fair bit of variety whereas some of B's more esoteric tracks are there as the source of nirvana covers.

B edges it for me largely because i've been playing Babies tonight

I'm less forgiving of lists that stick close to the classics. This one though doesn't put a foot wrong so I can't deny it.

Both quite good, B wins out here due to being a bit more imaginative.

A is the type of list which doesn't thrill me on first inspection but, when I actually think about it, I end up nodding my head. B is on a spiteful mission to bewilder me.

I love the obviously great Melodians, J. Cash and Velvets additions enough to make me vote for A with some confidence.

A 58 plays B 69

A gets massive negatives for picking the completely wrong version of Temptation.

Bloody Heresy, more than that - evil.

B wins by default
