    Billy Talent bracket starting tomorrow!

    For those who are new to the concept, these are randomly generated brackets (no seeding!) where we go from album to album and put the songs from an album against each other. We vote on each matchups until we have a winner for each albums. Those songs will then face off in a Champions bracket to decide the best overall Billy Talent song! Same rules as the other brackets:


    Rules:

    1. Voting will take place over 10-24 hour period, depending on how close the matches are (if there's a wide margin too far to beat, the round may be run ruled to not waste time).

    2. You must vote on every match in a round. If you don't, your votes don't count. Just reply to this thread with your choices. I will not vote unless there is a tie needed to be broken.

    3. Feel free to discuss why you chose one song over the other and why you like that song. It's what keeps these fun!

    4. I avoid byes into rounds if I can, but sometimes it's necessary. These are randomly generated; I do not pick them.

    5. Once your votes are counted, there are no vote changes. Choose wisely before posting!

    6. The King John Rule: Only participate if you've heard these songs. You are welcome to look them up and listen before hand, but if there's evidence you haven't heard them before or you're just voting to help/hurt a song your votes will not count.


    And the most important rule of them all : Have fun and stay respectful of each other.

    This album is so fucking good.

    (Side note: I got an early copy of this record a few months before it came out, and I was floored the first time I listened to it. Told my friends this band was going to blow up and none of them believed me. Told me Ben’s vocals were too different to catch on. I got the last laugh)

    You definitely should! I'm not big on III, but Dead Silence and Afraid of Heights are great!

    Btw, I skipped the Pezz stuff. Most people don't even know they have an album under a different name before Billy Talent I.

    I knew it was gonna be a small bracket. I'm fine with that, makes it easier to count votes haha.

    Try Honesty and L&S is a tough match up as they're two of my favourites on that album.

    Try Honesty - This one was very difficult for me

    Living in the Shadows

    Nothing to Lose - This gets the slight edge

    Standing in the Rain
