Do I have to use my mod powers to break this tie? C'mon. Elliott Smith was a legend.

Users are allowed to change votes as long as the poll is open, so someone could theoretically switch their vote before the poll ends in order for it to no longer be a tie.

What's good is that with each day the poll stays open, more people vote. What sucks is that it is staying tied. :lol:

It's seemingly a much closer match than I would have expected (I voted for Rage, personally).

His estate threatened me via my ISP, so Smith gets my vote.

Please tell this story right now. Also, looks like you actually voted against Smith.

Definitely voted for him. Anyway, some years ago, I was torrenting an unofficial recording of Smith doing Beatles covers and decided, "Since he's dead, he doesn't need the money." So I added an official album. Some months later, I received an email from Charter with the attached request from his estate asking that I not torrent his work in the future. It was actually very politely written, but they did mention legal action if I persisted. So don't torrent Elliot Smith. Or Elvis...They're not so nice.
