A friend directed us to a site recently that in our opinion, is quite a revolutionary music movement. It attempts to categorize and rank the most popular Bands in the UK by their online fan following. This unconventional approach to calculating repute makes most sense today with majority of fans gaining access to their favorite music online and displaying their love through social forums.
Facebook, Twitter and YouTube are the name of the game. By pulling data off these sites, Starcount’s top secret formula churns out how popular a Band or Artist is. Their latest foray, Battle of the Bands is an online arena where visitors can compare the popularity of their favorite bands to competition. Three options- Trending Today, All Time Chart and Ones to Watch are self explanatory and help determine whats-hot and whats-not.
Though results are confined to bands in UK right now, expansion plans are in process. The Power Struggle Music team believes that this page is going to soon explode and become a fantastic source to discover and showcase new talent. Every artist is going to want to be up there and every fan is going to hope to see their picks ride the chart. Hey, at the end of the day, ‘If you are what you say you are, a superstar, Then have no fear, The Battle of the Bands is here’!
