I've seen a few of these polls going around so I created this one. It's primarily based on PA bands and I tried to include as many sub-genres as possible.

It's not entirely personal as I only have 84 of these.

It's just for fun so don't take it too seriously.

I scored 63. Have not really heard a lot of the RPI bands, which is clearly an oversight in my case.

Good list Ian and thanks for not hogging it with mostly avant/RIO bands. Smile 

I scored a 50 not counting bands I've seen live.

I created this one to focus more on the breadth of sub genres on PA.

I only got 21... Confused

But then again I'm only counting bands I've heard complete albums by, so samples and individual songs are left out. Otherwise, my score would've been higher by a decent bit.
