Nate Allen (of Destroy Nate Allen) wanted to say thanks to everyone who voted for him in the Superbowl.  And for those who didn’t vote for him…  well, I don’t want to go there.

Go here to download all his songs for free.

Well, now that the Christian Music Superbowl is done, it’s time for questions.   Who do you think should have won?

I opened up the Superbowl to everybody, meaning that it essentially was a popularity contest, a race to gather more fans than the other artists competing.  Let’s pretend it wasn’t a popularity contest and the winner was picked solely on merit – be it musical creativity, excellent song writing, devotion to their career, passion for God, impact in the world, or whatever – who most deserves the win?

nateallensuperbowltrophy.jpgThanks, everyone, for voting for the Christian Music Superbowl I, and thanks to all the artists who participated!  I had a lot of fun, and I hope you all did too.

After tallying all the votes, we have the final numbers right here:

Keith Green – 33
Over the Rhine – 39
Agents of Future – 51
Destroy Nate Allen – 61

Way to go, Nate Allen!  Your prize package should be coming soon.

I’m really glad to see Nate win.  I would have been happy if Agents had won.  If Keith Green had won, I’d be a little dissapointed (but not too much… he is Keith Green after all).  If Over the Rhine had won, I’d have cried.  Not literally, but spiritually, which is even sadder.  No, seriously, they’re great musicians and did an awesome job in the competition, but I’m glad to see Nate pummel them.

Thank you, everybody, for humoring me for the Superbowl, and hopefully next year’s will be even better.  Leave your congratulations (for Nate, not for me) in the comments, and any suggestions on how to improve.

Voting for the first ever Christian Music Superbowl will begin tomorrow morning, but I wanted to give everyone a preview of who the final contestants will be.

The final epic battle on Superbowl Sunday will be between the following four stellar (first use of the word “stellar” at The Blah Blah) artists.  You will see them listed below, along with witty descriptives which have nothing to do with the band other than that I think they are hilarious but they might just be retarded.

Over the Rhine (but not the hill)
Keith “No Compromise” Green
Destroy Nate “Votes for Himself” Allen
Agents of “We Have the Most ‘U’s in Our Name” Future

So be sure to come by tomorrow morning to vote on the final match.  See you then!

You can still finish up voting for Group 16 of Round 1, but for those of you ready to move on…

Welcome to Round 2, where the action gets really heavy and the voting gets even tougher.  Rules are a little different now.  First thing you’ll notice is that there will be matches every day from now until the Superbowl, and then on the Superbowl, there’ll actually be two matches, a morning one and an evening one.  Next thing is that instead of having 5 days (120 hours) to vote, now you’ll only have 2 days (48 hours), so that I can squeeze it all in by the time of the Superbowl.

There are four groups in Round 2, each made up of the winners in Round 1, with order randomly selected.  Each group has 4 artists competing in 6 head-to-head matches, just like in Round 1.  Vote for the winner of each head-to-head match, just like you did in Round 1.

If that all makes sense, let’s see who we’re voting on today:

Over the Rhine – Don’t Wait for Tom (Download Streaming)
Waterdeep – Everyone’s Beautiful (Download Streaming)
Half-Handed Cloud – I Got a Letter (Download Streaming)
Jeremy Casella – Distress Signal (Download Streaming)

Download the MP3s if you need ’em, but judge the artists and not just the song I put up.

Here are the six matches to vote on:

1) Over the Rhine vs. Waterdeep
2) Over the Rhine vs. Half-Handed Cloud
3) Over the Rhine vs. Jeremy Casella
4) Waterdeep vs. Half-Handed Cloud
5) Waterdeep vs. Jeremy Casella
6) Half-Handed Cloud vs. Jeremy Casella

Let the voting begin! All votes must be received in the comments by 8:00 am CST on Wednesday, January 30, 2008.

Important Note

These MP3s are here for sampling purposes and to help spread the news about some sweet bands you may not otherwise know about. Support the artists by buying their MP3s and CDs and attending their shows. If you're a musician and don't want your MP3s on here, let us know and we'll take them down. In the interests of promotion and not robbery, all MP3s are taken down after a week or two, so if you wanna hear stuff, either come around often or pay for songs.

Send us an e-mail if you want stuff removed or you would like to be promoted here.
