The McCoys

Determine a band's leader by analyzing a publicity photo.

A band's inclusion on this blog reflects neither an endorsement nor a criticism of its music. This post is merely intended as a spotlight on the inner political workings of a collection of individuals who are in the midst of a cooperative, creative endeavor.

The Process:
You, dear reader, please answer the question, "Who's in charge here?"

After sufficient discussion has taken place, a verdict can then be passed based on a majority vote.

Band: The McCoys
Genre: Pop

Voting ends on: Monday, August 17th, 9:00am CST (GMT-5)

THE VERDICT (Updated!)

Voting has ended.

No One - 1 vote
Second From Right - 3 votes
Semi-Thumbs-Up - 1 vote

Wow, quite the enthusiastic turnout for The McCoys. I included two votes cast after the deadline in an attempt to "Rock" the "Vote". Alas, I don't think it was rocking.

Second From Right, congrats -- that smattering of votes is for YOU!

at the exact moment this picture is taken, their manager-father is in charge. in a couple of years though, when the teenage-rebellion-creative-control-money-issues hit, the second from right takes charge, so i vote for him.

p.s. i never knew that peewee herman and crispin glover used to be blonde! ;)

When I was young, I thought the song was "Hang on Snoopy." I thought they were talking about Snoopy hanging onto his doghouse, insofar as he's always on the roof. This thought brought order to my universe and made me happy. Then one day, my mother said: "Dammit already, it's Sloopy, not Snoopy. Also, there's no Santa Claus."

I firmly believe that Hatless is correct in saying that second-from-left is in charge. If it turns out I'm wrong, please tread gently on my still-frayed sensibilities.

second from the right, though realistically how can any of them be in charge? They all allowed the photo with them wearing the scrunched bin bag suits, what were they thinking?

I cast my vote for the older gentleman that sings "Hang on sloopy" every, and i do mean EVERY SINLGE WEEK at my favorite karaoke bar without fail. That kinda dedication is that of a leader. There for old man at the karaoke bar gets my vote.

word veri: persisef- what the word persistant sounds like when your drunk

the guy on the left giving a semi-thumbs-up sign.

that was totally arbitrary, but whatever.

Their dentist - look at those shiny white teeth, my God...and then after a while, their I'll go along with the current majority and say second from the right, if only because he looks like a high school still of my dad...

word veri: facke as in "are you facke-ing kidding me with this band?"
