B - mostly for The Doobies and Timebox. Two pretty spotty lists if you ask me.

Both decent - but B has Augie March, Rachel Goswell and the wonderful Girls at Our Best.

We all know who A's list is from - I sense a bit of a protest vote for it, and maybe some Weakest Link style tactics, though it's a not half bad list.

It's a top choice compared to that Saxon one!

Despite the blots A just seems like a more fun listen.

Both lists that have won some support from me, which sucks considering the fucking drivel thats winning these days in other matchups.

A just hits more often for me. Sorry B, you would've won my vote in any other match so far.

You know, B might be more exciting overall, but I just think A has the better hit-rate of songs.
It's before my time but I've been told, he never came back from Karangahape Road.
