the 21st century started in 2001 and although brand new's first album was released in the 21st century they were formed in 2000 which is still in the 20th century

 

you could pick another band or we could change the rule to any band whose first album was released in the 21st century can be nominated

if a lot of people aren't interested then we'll just go ahead and do this with at least 8 bands or we nominate a few more bands each

 

at most we could nominate 32 or 64 bands

You're right about the 21st century thing - i just took the 'since 2000' in the title as 'since the start of 2000' my bad

the seeds are going to be determined by how many listeners the bands have on last.fm

 

i think that's the best way and i don't know any other way

 

so the band with the most listeners will face off against the band with the least listeners

 

arcade fire - http://www.last.fm/music/Arcade+Fire - 2.4 million listeners

arctic monkeys - http://www.last.fm/music/Arctic+Monkeys - 3.3 million listeners

brand new - http://www.last.fm/music/Brand+New - 1.2 million listeners
