Vote For Your Favorite Rock Songs, The W Bands

Posted on: December 6, 2008 2:55 pm
 

Wow, we're almost at the end of the alphabet.  I'll be able to cover the X, Y and Z groups in the next entry, then we can head to the playoffs.  This has been a fun journey for me so far, and I've gained some e-friends through doing this.  Again, I wish to thank all of you who visit my blog and post their votes.   Its kept me at it through the alphabet. 

Before we go to the W songs, its time for me to announce the winning songs from the S Bands, Part 3.  I asked for 8 votes, and much to my happy surprise, there were 8 clear cut winners.  Following are the 8 songs that advance to the playoffs...

  1. Come Sail Away - Styx
  2. Take the Long Way Home - Supertramp
  3. Too Much Time on My Hands - Styx
  4. The Grand Illusion - Styx
  5. Lady - Styx
  6. Mr. Roboto - Styx
  7. Bloody Well Right - Supertramp
  8. Interstate Love Song - Stone Temple Pilots

Now to the part that brought you here today, the list of songs to vote on.  I've made a list of 99 rock songs by bands/artists in the W category.  This list may not include all rock acts in this category and it does not include every song done by these groups/artists, just the songs that are perceived to be their most popular or got more air time on the radio.  If there is a qualifying rock song you wish to vote for that isn't on the list, you may vote for it anyway.   I'll allow up to 9 votes in the category.   Without further ado, here is my list, have at it friends...
