PunkAndNewWaveClassics

When we think of this tag it’s a far more broader church isn’t it.

Interestingly, while researching this, in many lists online, Love Will Tear Us Apart didn’t feature at all though I’d consider it fits the bill.

I’ll recognise it as a classic but won’t be nominating it as my ten will feature personal favourites.

And I hope you will too! In fact the more obscure, the merrier.

To add, when I ran this hashtag through Twitter…

way-hey, we’ve an exclusive hashtag to work with.

PREVIEW

With such a vast amount of songs duplicated, I thought it best, in the early rounds at least, not to tag each nominee individually as once the draw is published, everyone will know which song is theirs as the polls go out each day. Later on perhaps things will get a little more formal. So when you see a song and think, hang on a minute, I nominated that, don’t worry as if it’s successful and reaches the latter stages of the competition then everyone who voted for the particular song will be tagged.

To add, if you submitted ten songs and one hasn’t appeared it will simply be because of space AND subject to a limit on repetition of bands, i.e, making sure we don’t have an overflow of Clash, Pistols, Stiff Little Fingers etc – I’ve worked diligently to ensure everyone has a fair crack – so let’s Whip It!

GROUPS

In rounds one and two, there will be groups of four with the top two most voted for songs going through.

ROUND ONE – 128 GROUPS

ROUND TWO – 64 GROUPS

Then from round three onwards, all songs will compete with each other head to head on a single knockout basis.

Thank you all very much for your interest and votes: this tournament will now commence on Saturday 1st October with polls published on Twitter usually between the hours of 7 and 9am.
