Here we are at the 8th installment of the Rock My Monkey Cage Match. Yet again we will pit several bands against each other, but please know that more changes are on the way. Yes this poll will change every few weeks to keep bands on their toes. This weeks Cage Match starts with a major upset. It seems that our longest runing champs Haunting the Disconnect have made their point and moved on. After several weeks of knocking bands way bigger than them around like they were silly little play things, Haunting the Disconnect had very few votes this week. So I am lead to believe that they are just graciously letting some new blood come in. It would have been a nice fight to see them go up against our new champs Switchblade Rosie though. Can Switchblade Rosie hold on as long as Haunting the Disconnect did? Only time will tell.
As always, if any bands want to volunteer to enter the ring, please stand up and let us know! Bands that volunteer will get picked for the battle before any band we at Rock My Monkey pick. So if your band is as bad ass as you think they are, prove it! Think your band is good? Wanna fight about it? If there are not enough bands that stand up to the challenge, I will fill in the empty slots with my own picks. The song MUST be a free listen with zero restrictions. This can mean a straight up MP3 download, a YouTube link, a ReverbNation stream, or any other method that does not require the person trying to vote to do anything but listen. No iTunes/Amazon links, No 'email for a song' crap, and no we will not host it for you. Upload it to YouTube, ReverbNation, or your own website. So take a listen and vote for the song you think is best. You may vote as often as you want.
Can either of these bands unseat our reigning champions Haunting the Disconnect?
1. Only promote links that start with RockMyMonkey.com and not links that start with RockMyMonkey.net to get your fans to vote.
2. If we believe your band is hacking to win, your band will be disqualified.
3. We STRONGLY ENCOURAGE bands to network and campaign for votes. Just don't cheat the two rules above.
- This contest IS NOT about who is more popular, has more video views, or more Facebook likes!
- This contest IS TOTALLY about who gets more votes, whose fanbase is more rabid, and who can network the best.
The game is simple. Once it starts people can vote as often as they want. Then I grab the results and post them for all to see.
DO NOT take any of these polls serious in any way. They are just for fun. This poll will be live for one week.
