Promotion is important in the real and virtual music worlds.  With so many bands trying to capture people’s attention you have to find a way to cut through the clutter to get a fan’s attention.  That’s where the tagline comes in.  It’s a way to sum up your band’s aesthetic in one line and hook a potential fan.  So when you cast your vote for the Best Tagline Figgie, make sure you pick a band whose tagline is clever, but also right on the money.

Here are the nominees for the Best Tagline Figgie 2010 (in no particular order):


“Because life is too short to play in 4/4”

    Sorry to upset the applecart here, but Zeroth has actually changed their tagline. It is now: “Profane fruit from a sacred tree”. You know how these artists can be…. 😉

    Yes, I do understand the fickle nature of fake artists! However, the award is for 2009, so if they win it will be for the tagline they used that year. Thanks for letting us know though.

    No problem. Just didn’t want anyone confused as to why it wasn’t matching what was listed above.
