This year, Lollapalooza is running a competition called Last Band Standing in which "any band – big or small – from anywhere in the world compete to join the Red Hot Chili Peppers, Kanye West, Manu Chao, Wilco and 125 more bands on the Lollapalooza 2006 lineup. The winner will not only receive an opening slot at Lollapalooza, but countless other prizes and perks." The Militia Group's The Appleseed Cast is among the huge list of bands in this competition; to find a band, use the navigation bar along the top, and be sure to vote for the artist you enjoy most!

Let us know who you voted for! We can hopefully get a healthy new music discussion going out of this contest.
