Yep, That's the Band I'd Have Picked. Wait a Minute. They Were a Band?

Spice Girls top bands reunion poll - Yahoo! News UK: "The Spice Girls have been voted the band most people would like to see get back together.

Even though it's been a decade since they burst onto the music scene with the undeniably catchy Wannabe and their Girl Power slogan, the five-some took 17% of the vote in the Yahoo poll.

They beat legendary music acts such as The Jam and the Stone Roses to take the top spot.

Rock legends Led Zeppelin took second place and The Police came in third.

'The Spice Girls' music, like it or loathe it, has that amazing ability to transport the listener straight back to their heyday,' said Gareth Bellamy, Editor of Yahoo! Music UK.

And voters might just get their wish.

The girls - Victoria Beckham, Emma Bunton, Geri Halliwell, Melanie Chisholm and Melanie Brown - are rumoured to be planning a comeback."

You will not mock the Spice Girls, Bill. I won't have it.

I'd like to see David Crosby and his original liver do a one off appearance, but I heard his old liver is contractually bound to Guns N Roses until Axl has his head surgically removed from his ass.

In an ideal world the Beatles would be in their early twenties and perform before an audience that does NOT include screaming teenage girls (or boys, if any are so foolish).

The only reason I can think of to have the Spice Girls together is so you don't have to use more than one grenade to blow them away.

As long as the Spice Girls are diverting Bill's attention from
Paris Hilton, I think they're great.

Maybe Zep took second place because a reunion would require John Bonham's rotting corpse to take position behind the drums.

It's the only way I can deal with the idea that the Spice Girls are #1 in this category.

Personally, I'd be happier with the zombie drunmer decaying before our very eyes, bits faaling off here and there, than I'd be with the horrific gag-inducing keening that makes up the SG's catalog, but then my revulsion for the Undead isn't as strong as some people's.
