Because obviously I don't trust the Brits on matters of taste. Vote one song for each artist. The artists are not competing against each other here, they are each moving 1 song to the next round, so please vote for everyone.

If you can come up with similar ones about IMPORTANT artists, I will include those results in later rounds. Just please give people the best 4 songs to choose from for each artist.

Does anyone want to do part 3? Certainly there are artists that other people are more qualified than me to pick 4 songs from. Let me know.

U2 - Pride
Led Zeppelin - Stairway To Heaven
Rolling Stones - Paint It Black
Nirvana - Id vote for About A Girl, but the original 'Bleach' version. I dont care for the unplugged one. So out of those Id vote....Teen Spirit.
Guns N Roses - Welcome To The Jungle (bogans rock!)
Eagles - pass.

Some of my own choices...

RED HOT CHILI PEPPERS
Under The Bridge
Scar Tissue
Give It Away
Higher Ground

REM
Losing My Religion
Its The End Of The World
Drive
Everybody Hurts

Oh sorry dh. I just noticed you included REM in the other thread.

REM I did already in the other, I had 3 of the same 4 choices as you. RHCP I will add to the next one. Certainly anyone who just wants to list 4 songs for someone would also be helpful, but I do not guarantee I will use those exact 4.

OK, Iva's number #1, here are my requests. I try and feature as many different albums as possible, so even though I think all Pearl Jam's best songs are off Ten, I'm asking you to drop one of those three and give me something newer. Also, I think Last Cup Of Sorrow should be on the Faith No More list, so please drop one of the others (but not Epic).

I actually love Black the best, but not enough people have heard it :D

Black is also pretty good. Even Flow probably gets more airplay here than any of their songs, but I don't think it's that special. I probably like Alive, Jeremy, Once, and Black all better.

I agree, but in my opinion the "Appetite for Destruction"album is better than the 'illusion' ones.
