Re: The TF Pick The Best Song Game – Game 274 – Post Punk - Nominate!!!!!!!!!

What, we only can pick bands from the wikipedia page? Are there ways to get around that?:eek:h: I have a song in mind that's from a person who was a member of a band that is on that wikipedia list. That person then formed another band...

But I see some odd bands being labeled as post punk as well. U2 for crying out loud...

Wow, looking at that list of bands I see a truckload of former nominations. Didn't realize I had sent that much post punk.

I understand what you're saying but using the Wikipedia lists, even though they probably aren't exhaustive, is the best way I know of providing a clear definition of what is acceptable and what isn't. In any event, the new band might not be a post-punk one as it might have gone in a new direction.

I had hoped it would be broader. Postpunk isn't just a British thing.

We will just get plenty of Joy divisions and Depeche Modes.

I wanted to exclude previously used artists but it wasn't really possible.

oh look, swell maps, whom i just nominated, are on the list.
quite a few bands that i never considered post-punk, DM being one of them. i guess it's more of a period than a genre thing.

I think there is quite a bit of subjectivity about which genre an artist/band fits into, especially as often they are 'allocated' to several.

I would never have considered U2 post punk myself.

Discogs give the various 80s albums as new wave, alt rock, pop rock, art rock and/or simply rock'n'roll.

I wish you didn't restrict the game to the artists on the wiki list, because many obscure or foreign bands don't even have wiki pages.

The wiki list could have been left as a helpful guide only.

But Sunday Bloody Sunday could be considered a post-punk song with folk elements, right?
