Congratulations to People of the Sun, a RATM tribute, who won Friday’s Battle of the Tribute Bands at Warehouse Live after a hard fought contest against some very worthy fellow tributes.  They win a $2500 cash prize and a headlining spot worth $1000 at Warehouse Live. They also got to hang out with Eddie Trunk, who hosted the show.

Nine Houston tributes participated in all, over a course of three rounds. Of those nine, People of the SunElement of One & Guns ’N Texas advanced to reach the third and final round, filling three of the four finalist spots. No Remorse graciously stepped up to fill the fourth spot when it was vacated by another tribute due to a scheduling conflict.

While it’s no secret that we’re not a fan of the format (we think bands should be paid every tine they play, unless it’s a charity gig), we *are* fans of every band that participated, and we’d like to recognize them all.  We’d like to also give a special shoutout to Element of One, who wrote one of the nicest and most sportsmanlike posts we’ve ever seen to congratulate People Of The Sun on their win. Well done, all of you!

Bands that participated were: Mouth For War (Pantera)People of the Sun (Rage Against The Machine)Element of One (Kill Switch Engage)Whiskey Hangover (Godsmack)50 Shades of Green Day (Green Day)Temple of Mercy (Sisters of Mercy)No Remorse (Metallica)Guns ’n Texas (Guns ’n Roses),  and Second Hand Smoke (Sublime).
