Best Punk Album of the 70's: Voting Phase!
by Michele Christopher
We're ready to roll out the voting on the 70's portion of Best Punk Albums.
If any of you don't know what is going on, a few days ago we asked you your opinion on the best punk albums of the 70's. We took all of the names you gave us. Everything. We formed a list and now it is time for you to vote. Attitudes and bullshit mean nothing to us here unless you give us a name. This stopped being our list the second we typed up the idea. This is the readers list. That means you. You made this. You decide.
The idea we had was to do decade by decade. Asking for your input. Have a vote. Then at the end, put the four winners of each decade against each other to find the best punk album of all time picked by you.
This is the 70's.
When this is over, you can god damn well tell us we suck for the winners or the losers, but in the end, the responsibility of the outcome is solely on you.
Just few a few notes before we begin:
This being a holiday weekend, things are a bit slow around here. Depending on the number of votes we get over the next day or so, we might just leave this thing up until after the holiday. Either way, we will not resume the list making until then. So look for the 80's nominations thing to begin on Wednesday.
So here's the 70's poll. Vote early, vote often, jam the phone lines, stuff the ballot box, form alliances, lie, cheat, steal...basically all the same things you did with the punk songs ballot apply here as well. The only steadfast rule we have here at FTTW is that you always keep in mind this is supposed to be fun. If the album you think should win doesn't, it's not a travesty of justice. It's that someone had more passion for clicking a mouse than you did. In the immortal words of Spongebob (the most punk rock sea creature ever), "It's not about winning, it's about fun!"
