Picked to Click 2012: The best comments
Every year, we give our Picked to Click voters the chance to choose the best in new local bands. We've always been thrilled by the votes rolling in one-by-one, watching the tally marks add up for all the different Twin Cities acts. While it's fun to total the votes, we have just as much fun seeing all the heartfelt, fantastic, and hilarious comments on the ballots.
Celebrating another fantastic year of Picked to Click, we've gathered some of our favorite comments from our esteemed voters.
To all you future Picked to Click voters out there, remember to sound off in the comments section on the next ballot. Tell it like you see it; we can't get enough of your wit and enthusiasm.

Picked to Click's like the Oscars: it may not determine the longevity of art or artists, but it sure does make for a fun time capsule of any given year's hype. And to be honest - you're a little miffed if your favorite isn't included, even if you don't want it to be.
