I may have unofficially participated in this month's latest Battle of the Bands, but I do have an official winner from that unofficial venture. I gave my vote to Type O Negative because their cover was the first I'd heard, it doesn't sound remotely like the original, and they are one of my all-time favorite bands. Still, The Smashing Pumpkins won, 5-2. I can't really complain - though Type O is much more special to me, I love The Smashing Pumpkins version as well. Almost as much, in fact :)
As far as I know, the next Battle of the Bands will be January 1st. This will also be my next addition of the Mix Tape Shuffle, so expect a music-packed New Year's Day here!
