I want C696... only the best band ever!! If they don't open, it'll be because Bon Jovi doesn't want to get upstaged at his own concert ;)

Thanks for your comments but I think you misunderstood what I was saying. Original does not necessarily equate with underground. A band can be original and popular...look at Radiohead or Beck's work, or even U2 and Led Zeppelin for that matter. A song can be popular and original OR popular and predictable. Emulating Bon Jovi does not equate in my books as original nor popular...therefore no sale.

Cheers, Cork

Don't get me wrong, I totally agree with what you are saying, and I love creative and innovative music just as much as the next guy. I'm just pointing out that mainstream pop/rock music is usually very predictable and follows a specific structure. The fact is, most of the music-buying market is made up of people who aren't musicians; they just want to hear songs that sound good, predictable or not. That's why it makes the most money and is the most popular. I completely agree that music is an art form, but it's also a business too, and in the end the majority of people will value it by the money it makes. Aside from that, I think that this contest is looking for exactly that type of band/artist. It's not some underground, creative, or innovative competition. I think they're looking for a band that could potentially have MAINSTREAM success. "Predictable" songs are just what they're looking for..

Just because predictable songs are doing well in sales does not necessarily mean they are good. Come on now...we all know that some "popular" songs only do well because they get tons of radio play and marketing. Predictable pop tracks are shoved down your throats and if that is all you hear, well that is what eventually people buy. If you see sales as the main indicator of good music, well then you are reducing the value of music to a product and not art. I guess it depends what you value. I value good, original music that is well produced not ho-hum, super-produced, predictable music; that is, songs with formulaic chordal progressions, melody, lyrics, musicality and structure. Both can succeed in this industry but for different reasons. You value predictable music and many don't...everyone is entitled to their opinion.

Predictable??? Do people really know what this contest is about? 95% of mainstream rock/pop is predictable music, but guess what, it's the music that makes the most money! Even Bon Jovi's music isn't groundbreaking or original...but it always has good melody, a solid hook, high production value, which is exactly what this song has. I just have a problem with people using the stock and meaningless judgement of a song being "predictable". Go ask Nickleback how their "predictable" songs are doing...I'm sure they wouldn't complain!!!
