It’s time to get this week’s 5 weekly polls underway, starting off with the Stones Poll, where we enter week 937 of polling and as usual, we will answer 2 poll questions this week. The first question will ask this: Blue and Lonesome vs Steel Wheels, which album do you like the best?
Week 6 of the Blue Polls, which features the Stones newest studio album, Blue and Lonesome, and this week it will go up against the Stones 1989 release,Steel Wheels SW is having a hard time in these matchups, with a record of 3-10, placing it in 20th place out of the 25 spots in the standings.
To see the song list for each album, for Blue and Lonesome, click on: B&L, and for Steel Wheels, click here: SW.
To cast your vote in this first Stones poll, just click on: Stones Weekly Poll, and when you get to this page, choose “Poll 1” to vote on this question.
The second Stones poll is where we normally run the Stones album VS matchups, and we are still doing that even while the first poll is hosting a new series for it. So the week's second poll will ask this: December's Children vs Let It Bleed, which album do you like the best?
The “December's Poll (and everybody's)" Polls return this week to our second Stones poll, featuring the Stones 1965 LP December's Children. In our album matchups, this one has a 6-7 record, which places it in 16th place in the standings. It goes up this week against 1969's Let It Bleed, which is doing very well in these matchups, in second place, with a 12-1 record.

To cast your vote in this second Stones poll, just click on: Stones Weekly Poll, and when you get to this page, choose “Poll 2” to vote on this question.
The first Stones poll last week asked: Blue and Lonesome vs Black and Blue, which album do you like the best?
Well B&L finally got its second win, and it got it big time with a landslide victory. To see the finial results to the poll, just click here::Stones Weekly Poll - week 936, poll 1. Plus, I’ll add the results from this poll to the standings at the Stones VS Page 1, where at the top of the page you can check out the updated standings on how each album has done in these long running VS polls.
Looking back at last week’s second Stones poll, the question was: It's Only Rock 'n Roll vs Their Satanic Majesties Request, which album do you like the best?
This poll did not see a landslide like the first question did, but still it was close to being one, as It's Only Rock 'n Roll had a big enough win over TSMR. To see the final results from this poll, click here:Stones Weekly Poll - week 936, poll 2. Plus, just like at the first poll, I’ll add the results from this poll also to the standings at the Stones VS Page 1.
Now to the Classic Rock Poll, where we enter poll week 577, and just like as we do at the Stones poll, we run 2 poll questions a week at this one, too. The first poll’s new question this week, asks: Which pop/rock band or duo listed was the worst group ever?
This poll question covers both playing in the studio, and performing live. You will notice when you see the groups listed, that this list is not limited to just Classic Rock artists in general, like most of our polls are, this one covers bands and groups that play or sing some form of rock and pop music, including a few rap artists, and several new wave bands. Basically when I pit this list together, I ran a general Google search for ”the worst rock band ever”, and several bands that I don't know that great came up often, like Limp Bizkit, and Creed. So I went and listed such groups since they just kept showing up on lists at several different sites that I would check out. Now, no, bands like the Eagles, or say Bon Jovi, are listed, since IMO, they are clearly good bands as far as playing their instruments goes. Yes, many Classic Rock fans dislike them and think they are cheesy, but that don't mean they can't play well enough, since being a cheesy band verses being a band that can't play their instruments, well, isn't the same thing, and that is why some cheesy bands are listed, while some others aren’t. So do understand that the question isn't asking about cheesy bands here, even if some of the groups listed are just that. We will vote on cheesy bands next week, although the question for that poll will be worded totally different than this week's question.
Also notice that no solo acts are listed, as we are just looking at bands or groups this week. Some might also wonder why only 34 acts are listed. Well I went with what I felt were the worst of the bunch - that - and again, most of the same groups just kept coming up over and over in my searches on different sites. Yes, there were some other acts listed too that IMO should never have been listed, so I didn’t include them. One list that had to be put together by a total moron, listed both the Stones and Beatles on his top 25 list of the all-time worst bands ever. I can understand (even if it's hard to do) that some of the younger generation might not like these 2 bands, but claiming that they are amongst the worst rock bands ever is flat out stupid. Such a person is not too informed when it comes to rock history, and has no business making up such a list in the first place. .

At the second Rock poll this week, known better as the Rock VS poll we will answer this question: ”I Am a Rock”: Original by Paul Simon vs the original by Simon & Garfunkel, which version is better?
This tune is pretty much a song about a loner who had been rejected in love, and whom had just given up on being around others. It became a hit single for Simon and Garfunkel in May of 1966. Yet it was written by Paul Simon 2 years earlier, in 1964.
Many fans of Simon forget that before this song was released by Simon and Garfunkel, Simon had recorded and released it first on his first solo album in the summer of 1965, after he gave up singing with Garfunkel and decided to become a solo singer. He actually first played the song as a solo folk singer in the UK on TV in January of '65, before it was ever released. The song's version made by Simon and Garfunkel would not be recorded and released until their second album came out over a year after Simon's solo version was released, in May of 1966.
To vote, just click on Classic Rock Poll, and when you get to this page, choose “Poll 2” to vote on this question.
In last week’s first Rock poll, we asked: On what song as a session man did Billy Preston shine the brightest on?
The song I voted for, I see was the one most others picked too, as “Get Back”, which he recorded with the Beatles in 1969 while playing the Electric Piano, won in a landslide. Yet spots 2 thru 10 were all very close in the voting. To see the final results, just click here: Classic Rock Poll 1, week 576. Or, to just view the poll’s top 10 picks, just click here for: Top Ten Lists, Page, 14
In last week’s VS Rock poll, we asked this question: Pink Floyd's 'Run like Hell' (actual title) vs 'Run! Run! Run! Run!' (title some fans think it's called), which title do you like better?
Somewhat close results to this one.… To see the poll’s final results, just click here: Rock Poll 2, week 576 You can also check out the final results at the VS Classic poll results page 2, at the Classic Rock site, by clicking here: VS Page 2, List Page 10.
Time to now close out this poll post with the Beatles poll, where it’s week 330, and the question is this:: Who was more of a musical genius in the Beatles, John Lennon or Paul McCartney?
We were talking about this maybe 2 weeks ago here at Gasx3, in regard to both the Stones and Beatles - but more so for the Beatles, and figured it would make for a good poll question. I also plan to ask this question at the Stones poll as soon as the Blue polls finish up. But we will ask it first at the Beatles poll this week, and yes, a simple question that is really just one's point of view… but once we add up all the votes, we do get to see how most fans think about this overall, which to me anyway (and I bet you too), is cool to know.
To vote in this poll, go here: Beatles Weekly Poll.
In last week's Beatles poll we answered this question: Of the 14 Least Favorite Songs picked by fans from each of the Beatles studio albums, which one do you like the most?
“If I Needed Someone” (from Rubber Soul), was the choice in very close voting. To see the final results, just click here: Beatles Weekly Poll – week 329. Or, you can check out the top results only, at the Favorite/Least Favorite Songs off of each Beatle Album page, which is located at the domain’s Lennon Site.
Well, that does it for yet another poll post. I thank all of you who take part in the voting here each week in our 5 weekly polls! I hope all of you have a great week ahead!
