Heh, yeah, U2 will be bound to win if all of the people there vote... but what if they've already heard of it? We can't get screwed over by the "King of Pop" (oh please), we can't!

I wouldn't bother, honestly. Look at the total number of votes, it's not even 500 people... who cares...
if we were getting into the tens of thousands now, it might mean something...

I did vote for u2...but i have to admit that michael will deserve it if he does win. I mean....he really has been a HUGE pop culture symbol over the last 25 years. maybe even moreso than our boys...

as someone who was a teen in the 80s.. I know some of you here weren't even born until 1988 or 89

jacko was "pop".. teeny bopper dance music.
our boys were rock thankyouverymuch....

so frankly... ESPN are a bunch of tossers for even making these insane matchups in the first place
(U2 vs Run-DMC??? The hell? Both are iconic of their own genre...) and you know, Jackson can have "80s pop icon", because he was.

Hell, the endless semantic debate over the meaning of "pop music" got us a certain album by a certain band whom shall remain nameless.... see what it got us? ;)

I've sent U2log the link (dunno if they'll post it, though) and also advertised it on the newsgroup... I'm not sure it's going to make any difference though, U2 seem to be slipping further and further behind so I think the Jacko fans must have an even bigger campaign organised! :p

oh well, at least we tried. hehe. I advertised it on the interference forums, some u2 communities here in LJ, and the Bono Online Forum. It's not helping that much... but it'd be worse if we hadn't done anything at all. :)

Jacko can't win! :'(
