I just did that. All you have to do is put in your birthday, if you're over 21, and then you can vote for The Offspring.

Here's the link:

Is there any way to see the standings?I can't see a way to see it, and it's probably not possible either. Poll results can be very influential if the vote has ended yet.

It seems a lot of similar bands are going up against each other in the first round. I think the Vandals are a little too obscure to beat any band on that list.

Well, if you're not 21, I got an idea: if you still wanna vote here (http://kroq.radio.com/coorslight/), you just can put in your birthday and put in a year you weren't born (like, say, 1982). Try that.

Neither Offspring or No Doubt are that much in the spotlight nowadays, so it could be really a close one.

Outerspaceman21
06-20-2011, 08:59 PM
No Doubt has been out of the spot light longer than The Offspring imo. Offspring had a big hit 3 years ago, whereas No Doubt haven't had a charting single since 2003. All the votes pretty much are going to rely on Gwen Stefani's own popularity after No Doubt, which could make a legit difference.

Yeah, you're right about that. According to KROQ.com (http://kroq.radio.com/2011/06/20/vote-for-the-coolest-so-cal-kroq-band-round-3/), the 3rd round of voting ends tomorrow. It's between No Doubt and The Offspring, and the Red Hot Chili Peppers and Incubus too. I still hope The Offspring wins, though I have to admit wouldn't be surprised if they didn't.

dff_punk
06-21-2011, 01:15 PM
Although NOFX are much more talented musicians and more award-deserving than Blink would ever be, at the same time Blink has much more annoying fanboys and fangirls that NOFX would ever have.

Don't get me wrong, I really like both bands.

I can't believe we beat A7X. But, we should beat No Doubt for sure, which probably means we'll lose.

Too bad, but no big shame in getting beaten by No Doubt I guess.

Omni
06-22-2011, 10:28 AM
I knew we'd lose, just because we were supposed to win. No Doubt has been doing a bit of touring recently, but they haven't had an album in ten years, and it'll probably be another year or more before we see another.

A7X is hotter than the Offspring in the public eye right now. I don't see how we beat them, so it's gotta even out somehow. There's no way we would have beaten Red Hot Chili Peppers, anyway. They're destined to win this, even if we did get past Incubus and Blink-182.

06-22-2011, 12:46 PM
blink 182 is going to win they have the biggest fanbase

Omni
06-22-2011, 02:15 PM
I disagree with that completely. The Peppers have like five multi-platinum albums, they hold the record for most #1s on the alternative rock chart, and they're EXTREMELY hyped right now since a new album is coming out in a couple months. Blink-182's reunion hype has fizzled out, since it's been a good two or three years with no new album or single of any kind.

Outerspaceman21
06-23-2011, 12:42 AM
I think it's gonna be the Chili Peppers to win this. They got an album coming out, still riding some of that buzz from their last album and have way more hits. Still, this contest has really surprised me so far, so I can't make anymore judgement until the end.

i still think blink will win breaking up for five years rejuvenated their popularity unfortunately:(

Though I've listened to Blink a LOT more than I have to No Doubt, I voted for No Doubt because they actually make high quality music, opposed to Blink's very fun music.

Kind of surprised that Blink beat RHCP...

Really interesting, out of all those bands participating, the finals are between Blink and No Doubt. Unexpected, but well, every band has a forum like we have, so, who knows? :)

danitanev
06-23-2011, 11:50 PM
Hm, I don't think Bink 182 and No Doubt are that good to be in The Finals, and I'm not giving my vote for anyone of them, but if I have to choose I'd probably choose Blink 182 - they have a few good punk rock songs!
PS - No Doubt are famous to me only with that crazy girl - Gwen and the song Don't Speak - a song I really hate!

samseby
06-24-2011, 06:22 AM
Couldn't agree more. "Don't speak" is one of my least favorite songs too (like "Nothing compares to you").

And Blink 182 well ... is Blink 182 (it's not like I would turn the radio up once a song is on or change channels). I just don't mind.

Outerspaceman21
06-24-2011, 01:48 PM
