You do wonder at the judgement of some of the people who make these lists.

Random Run does!

I'm fine with choosing from the list (it seems extensive enough).

If only I was sure that my head on the door was a dream

i hate U2 so much, but yeah, the early stuff in certainly in line with other bands on that list certainly they fit the bill as well as thompson twins.

i'm torn. on the one hand, i also wish we would not have to pick from a list and could jut go and explore the genre ourselves, like for example with the garage rock game. on the other hand, this way at least we won't have discussions about what fits and what not fits the theme (as we always have with genre games) and the list seems long enough, as joris says. do what you feel best about, dear mauriac.

One definition of post punk I read was "denoting a style of rock music inspired by punk but less aggressive in performance and musically more experimental."

It was so unfair when I chose Kings of Leon for garage rock game and got bad reviews even though they are garage rock and they were listed on the list in the thread! How unfair is that?



Post Punk, what is right? what is wrong? I don't want to be unfairly treated again. I want to know who is good to pick...

Funny you should say that, I noticed yesterday most of their 90s albums are labeled "Pop Rock, Experimental".

@SamL; and others who are struggling can have a look at Game 102 which included Post Punk genre together with some similar genres. Maybe get some ideas there about what could be popular (although a lot of players have changed since)

It's tricky but I think few people will have sent by now and I don't want to cause Adey any additional work. Although the list has quite a few bands that have been done to death on here and some that we might feel shouldn't be on there at all, there are also a lot that don't fall into either category so I think it is best to leave things as thy are.

I waan't expecting to win so I wasn't prepared with a category. I will try to think of a better one to have ready in case I win again.

Ash Barty - Angelique Kerber - Johanna Konta - Naomi Osaka - Nadia Petrova - Laura Robson - Aryna Sabalenka- Taylor Townsend - Heather Watson

@AdeyC looking for a song for this game, i noticed that the "used songs" list mentions two songs by The Psychadelic Furs, but it's The Psychedelic Furs.

I've just discovered this old French band and their song fits the theme.
