It’s been one of the most controversial, critically acclaimed and groundbreaking lists in musical history.

And now “We” are taking it on! Together with Power Pop Criminal$ and Ratboy 69, Power Pop Overdose wants to know what you think!

  • Can you improve on Borack's list?
  • What would you change?
  • Who is left on?
  • Who is left off?
  • Are the sands of time running out for Batman and Robin?
If you have the intestinal fortitude to shape the answers to these questions then follow the link at the top right and let us know what your top 5 All-Time Power Pop Albums are!

Do It Now!

Voting will continue thru 10/31/08 and we will post the Top 200 in November!

Did it quick before I had time to stew over the nominations and placements.

Also, might have added Imperial Drag's sole album if I could have convinced myself of it's place in a purely Power Pop list. And possibly New Miserable Experience by The Gin Blossoms for the same reason.

I deliberately didn't pick up and skim through the book before voting as I KNOW it would have skewed my results.

So these were my votes and let them stand :-)

1 - Powerbill by The Semantics
2 - Parallel Universe by IKE
3 - Spilt Milk by Jellyfish
4 - 100% Fun by Matthew Sweet
5 - One Night In America by The Plimsouls

Cool idea and I can't wait for the results.

Don't input them again! I already voted on the proper form :-)
