Musician Discography Rankdown


Recommended Posts


























Time for more fun! After the widely controversial Music Rankdown, which saw me quit in an epic and glorious fashion, I have been deciding how to play more music-based games on here without all of the wild drama. With the success of the current Filmography Rankdown, I have decided that a short, write-up-less game for music is the perfect way for us all to have fun talking about our favorite artists. Steven came up with a really solid idea + format, and he is okay with me doing something similar for this game as well. Instead of a traditional Rankdown that pits all of our favorite artists against each other, we will be examining the music of IDF's most beloved artists more in-depth. One artist per round, IDF will decide on the best single ever created and released by as many legendary musicians as we would like! Maybe at some point, all of the winning singles will face off against one another in a traditional Rankdown. But for now, let's just enjoy the music!




1. Each round will focus on one artist(s) at a time. At the beginning of this game, everybody will be free to submit one artist of their choosing to have an individual round. After all of these initial rounds have been completed, I will have everybody submit a list of desired artists to the game. I will then use the randomizer to help decide an order for the game to follow and to keep genres mixed up, etc. 

2. The game will work on a first-come, first-serve basis. Be prepared for these rounds to move quickly.

3. Write-ups are not required, but commentary and thoughts are of course welcomed and encouraged!

4. The format of each round will depend on the length of the discography of each artist.

5. At the start of each round, there will be an automatic save/advance to the finals rounds. Since some discographies might be too extensive, some beginning rounds will ask you to save more than one song, and all songs not saved will be automatically chopped from the game.

6. The middle rounds will consist of cuts. The amount of cutting rounds will depend on the length of the discography at play.

7. The final round will always feature a simple ranking that will be completed via PM. Public members will be able to participate in the final round. 20 songs will advance to the finals every round.




Each round should have at least four players. If only three players are interested in playing a particular round, I will substitute as the fourth player in the case that I happen to know the particular discography. I will be making decisions last in any round where I am asked to participate. 


All tracks included on any album that was released will be eligible for inclusion. If I have to venture outside of Wikipedia to look up the single, or if the single if just a live version of a song that is part of an album, it will not be included. Please try to be mindful of this, since I want this game to be as low energy/low commitment as possible.


Non-album singles + significant features + promotional features will be included in the game. 


Unless a remix is included as part of an album release or it happened to chart at any point, then it will not be included in the game. 


Solo artists will be separated from their respective former groups to respect the music/artists. Ex: Beyoncé vs. Destiny's Child


Be nice and have fun!


If nobody is interested in this idea, I will just request that a mod deletes the thread!

What are your thoughts on how to account for solo artists vs. their former groups? Must Destiny's Child be separate from Beyonce etc.?


Ahhh I knew I forgot a point in my original post! I think just for sake of clarity and to respect other artists (aka Kelly Rowland), I will be separating solo artists from their former groups.

Will all album tracks be included too? I see you only mention singles in the OP.


Ahhh yes! I was probably using the term "singles" too loosely! All album tracks will be included!

Ooh i was hoping groups and solo material would be separate so thankfully they are.

I also want to add that if anybody suggests an artist that does not take, I will be allowing that same ranker to choose another artist rather than skip their round. Everybody gets to have their turn!

Oooh lol I was hoping only singles would be represented than album track inclusions. :lmao: 


Some of the best songs are not released as singles, so it's only fair to the fans to give them everything they want!
