Way to get Algroth’s vote?

Put it in some total shite with no tune sung in a foreign language.

Easy vote winner.

To quote a little-known track in the cup thus far, I know what I like. I also know what I don't. Part if the fun in the cup is giving one's input on the tracks, and it just happens that I find a lot of this reg-rock to be utterly anathema to my tastes. You enjoy it? More power to you. But play the ball, not the player. :)

Fun lad?

Fun?

Wash your mouth out.

This is serious business and a tremendous amount is at stake.

As for your wishy-washy liberalist view 'I love prog and respect all' - there is no place for that.

DC is DC and should be eradicated from this world like airbrushing out Trotsky!

Disgraceful

Yes, disgraceful
