-2 to Journey because I really can't stand them. -1 to Tina Turner because I think she doesn't belong in the discussion the way some of the other bands here do (and I don't like her).

+2 to the Velvet Underground for innovation and influence, and +1 to Bob Dylan for some of the same.

My game here is generally to try to see the list whittled in rough order of who I think deserves to be in the conversation, obviously. But, I'm more inclined in the early going to try to boot bands from the list than revive or give props, which I'll only do if I think that someone much better is going to be eliminated before someone much worse.
