Fuck off, Eileen. Freddie is coming through. 
 

In my opinion, Queen should win the whole thing. 

A final of Queen Vs Led Zeppelin would be interesting.

I’m voting Queen, however, like most thought DMR are a bit of a novelty band because of Eileen.

 

They’ve done a lot of Tim Burgess listening parties in lockdown and they are in fact a lot better than I realised. Searching For The Young Soul Rebels is a really good album and well worth checking out, they are great musicians to boot.

Didn’t mind Freddie but I think I may be the only person in the country who thought their Live Aid gig was over rehearsed to death pompous shite....

 

And is there a more boring and uncool pair of fuckers than John Deacon and Brian May

Searching For The Young Soul Rebels by Dexys is a fine album. 

 

Can't stand Queen. Preposterous, over the top, theatrical, Sun City playing wankers.

Feel the same. Plus Geno is one of my favourite songs ever.

Dexys is heading out but it's basically a solo act anyway, isn't it? 

 

Rowland is famously difficult; in fact if you watch that Come on Eileen video, you'll notice one of the musicians is present in parts of it, but not others. This is because Rowland sacked him on the day.

Careful mate, you're starting to sound as edgy as cloggy.

His first cousins are from my neck of the woods in Ireland. Nice people.  I like Dexy's but has to be Queen.

Really like the first few Queen albums, they were awful after that. They get my vote based on the stuff I like. Sheer Heart Attack is a fucking great listen

This is one of the easiest votes. Queen are responsible for the dirge that is 'Flash', but 'Come On Eileen' is such a pile of shit that no band who makes that deserves a vote.

Yeah, I was thinking that myself. There's been so many changes to the line-up that it's hard to think of them as a single entity. Rowland is absolutely batshit

So, you're saying The Fall should be disqualified?
