Sorry, I missed this week of Chades posting. Mean Orcs this Friday I promise. Check out the work from the two contenders who were up to the challenge.

Also, make sure to vote on this week's Rock'n'Poll survey. Next week is the final three genres before THE CHAMPIONSHIP, when the the greatest rock'n'roll song of all time shall finally be revealed. So far the finalists are:

Hound Dog (Elvis Presley)
Paint it Black (Rolling Stones)
Welcome to the Jungle (Guns N' Roses)
Back in Black (AC/DC)
Run to the Hills (Iron Maiden)
Queen-Bohemian Rhapsody
Breakin' the Law (Judas Priest)
Like a Rolling Stone (Bob Dylan)
Whip It! (Devo)
Free Bird (Lynnard Skinnard)
Eye of the Tiger (Survivor)
Blitzkrieg Bop (The Ramones)
Smells Like Teen Spirit (Nirvana)

I know my musical knowledge is grossly incompetent, so if there are any songs you feel I've left out or bands that you feel have been gypped, speak now or forever hold your rock.

Again, tune in this friday for orcs and vote for them songs!

Dude, I voted for the Strokes for Greatest Indie Song because I didn't see any Blur "Song 2"!!! British, but Indie none the less.

Is there going to be an Alternative section to give props to Beck, Coldplay, Wilco, or The Flaming Lips?

As far as Thrash Metal is concerned; ask Rob T., we used to be experts. You might say a step above Beavis and Butthead. Any props for anything Metallica pre-The Black album? For Death "Overactive Imagination" is one of the best metal songs ever.

Her Name will be Olive.

In the Alt. category I would throw in Beck "Loser" or "Where It's At," and Radiohead "Paranoid Android" which is the title track off OK Computer; argueable to be the best Alternative album of all time.

On a side note you might want to include Blues Rock: The Alman Brothers song "Whipping Post" is one of the greatest rock songs of all time; in my opinion.
