Hello everybody, it's been a minute since I've been online here, but I just read this thing and thought this would be the perfect place to share it.

Chuck Klosterman writes on Bill Simmon's new website, Grantland.com. It's about sports and popular culture, and it's a pretty good read. The current article, however, blew my mind. He attempts to assign value ratings to musicians like they do to baseball players, which is hilarious in and of itself. Then, he suggested using the musician's numbers in conjunction with the rating of the band they were in. Standard listing of best bands ever follows, but, check out who's sitting at .55, right ahead of some super huge arena-rock bands: our very own Thomas Jefferson Slave Apartments.

Awesome.

(scroll to bottom of the article for the list if you don't want to read the whole thing)

i saw that too! sleep! hahaha...

now i'm fascinated to hear some of those bands on the list i'm completely unfamiliar with.

so if i run into some metal head and they laugh when i say tjsa is better than metallica, i can say 'oh yea? i can mathematically prove it!'..

Maybe TJSA would score higher if they had faux tribute-to-P5 names:

Ronichiro Pagoda
Bahbei Breikahand
Keito Hegonago
Noira Shealredigono

(I don't feel familiar enough with the later band members to pun them. They can feel free to supply their own P5 tribute names though.)

Maybe not, but it's an idea.
