Only everyone who's ever listened to Lou Barlow.  I didn't know this.

No, polls are simply lame.  Especially invited polls, which do not 
accurately sample a population but merely sample the fraction of the 
population who can be bothered to reply.  If anyone wants to know who 
the favourite ECB's of Sloannetters are, they simply need to read 
the posts and count how often bands are mentioned in a positive 
light.  One would likely establish a list something like this:

Eric's Trip
Thrush Hermit
Rebecca West

Which I bet is pretty close to what you'd get by asking everyone and
thumbscrewing them into an honest reply, unbiased by a daily posting 
of the results.

Statistically yours,
