    Could you at least name a few popular artists? I mean, even if you don't listen to music I'm sure you've at least heard of some of the more popular names of the music industry over the last...10 years, maybe? Eminem, Beyonce, 50 Cent, Mariah Carey, Jay-Z, Usher, Rihanna, Linkin' Park, Nickelback, Alicia Keys, Kanye West, Kelly Clarkson, Nelly, The Black Eyed Peas, Creed, Ludacris, Destiny's Child, Usher, Pink, Britney Spears...any of those ring a bell?

    FYI: That list doesn't reflect my own personal tastes for those wondering, those are the highest selling artists of the 2000s (That list isn't in order but Eminem was number 1)

    I actually kind of like Nickelback and Creed, but they definitely shouldn't be that high, and every single other artist on that list sucks.

    Yeah, I've heard of most of those people. I just don't know anything about them. (And it was only last week I believe that I learned Eminem was a guy. I'd always imagined that nickname to be a woman's for some reason.)

    I like a few Nickelback songs too. "How you remind me", "Rockstar" and "Burn it to the ground" spring to mind.

    As for the rest of that list, Linkin Park, Rihanna, The Black Eyed Peas, Britney Spears, Kanye West, 50 Cent, Jay-Z, Alicia Keys and even Nelly have all managed to crank out at least 1 song that I like.

    Wow, what an awesome turn-out. You guys rock! We've already filled up all 16 spots already... I've also already gotten 5 of the songs (6 including mine), so everyone who signed up, feel free to nominate something in the next week.

    For anyone else who missed the sign-ups and still wanna nominate a song, we can extend it to being more than just 16 songs. We could do second-round byes or something if we end up with 18 or 20 people or whatever.

    I really like how everyone has to go with more obscure songs than they would do otherwise. It means that everyone's choices should be fairly unpredictable.

    Maybe you should wait until the actual picks are posted before crapping on this thing. I'm not expecting this thing to be Pitchfork-approved or anything, it's just for fun.

    It's pretty difficult with your limited song choices. I had the music artist I was nominating in my head from the start, but it was hard thinking of a song that wasn't too famous yet brilliant at the same time. But the difficulty's definitely a good thing.

    No. And I doubt I would be able to seeing as most of their songs have pages on Wikipedia. But I'm not saying anything else about my choice.

    Trying not to go the boring "Pitchfork-approved" route, since most of my favorite songs end up being from those kinda artists.

    I really want this not to be obvious. It may end up that way anyway.

    I think I'm as happy as I can be with my choice. So many songs I wanted to nominate.
