Battle Of The Genres- Part 17

BATTLE OF THE GENRES - PART SEVENTEEN /// Boards Of Canada took the last round by one vote over Aphex Twin, with Burial not too far behind. Here's part seventeen, and as you can see there are two parts to this one. Read the instructions below and have fun... /// DESC RIPTION - Vote for a band that you would like to represent each genre. There are eighteen genres in total, which means eighteen preliminary rounds. Then the representatives from each genre will face off. Which genre/band will win? /// RULES - One vote per member per day (each round lasts 24 hours) - In the event of a tie, a faceoff will occur between the disputed bands - Let's get started
2Ludwig van Beethoven

Highest-rated album: Piano Sonatas 13 & 14 (Moonlight), Opus (4.7 avg. rating) /// "One of the most significant composers of all time, Beethoven was a key figure in the transition of classical music from the Classical era to the Romantic era."
3Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart

Highest-rated album: Symphony No. 25 in G minor, K. 183/173dB (4.6 avg. rating) /// No desc ription.
4Johann Sebastian Bach

Highest-rated album: Bach: Violin Concertos / M?ller-br?hl (5 avg. rating) /// "Johann Sebastian Bach (German pronunciation: [jo?han] or [?jo?han se?bastjan ?bax]) (31 March 1685 [O.S. 21 March] ? 28 July 1750) was a German composer and organist whose sacred and secular works for choir, orchestra, and solo instruments drew together the strands of the Baroque period and brought it to its ultimate maturity. Although he introduced no new forms, he enriched the prevailing German style with a robust contrapuntal technique, an unrivalled control of harmonic and motivic organisation in composition for diverse instrumentation, and the adaptation of rhythms and textures from abroad, particularly Italy and France."

So, many of you have expressed concern, outrage, anger, fear, and several other emotions at me for not including certain bands in this competition. Well, here's your chance. Please fill out the form below with YOUR selected bands for each genre. Only one band per genre. The band with the most votes in each category will represent that genre in round 18, where only one band will make it through (yes, there will be seven bands facing off next round). Please post your choices on the same post as your vote for this round.
