    Channel [v] Launchpad is back, and its out on the hunt for the best of the best!

    Last time around, we brought you the 5 best bands in India, who went on to become true 'rockstars' - Zero, Pin Drop Violence, Zephyr, Them Clones and Helga's Funk Castle.

    2007 - Channel [v] Launchpad with an All-Star jury is calling in the 'new blood'. The new breed of India Rock!

    We're looking out for those who have the hunger, to rule the crowd and rule the stage at Hard Rock Café, Mumbai!

    Every week bands from across India will battle it out to reach the final stages in their efforts to be crowned the numero uno rock band of the country!

    And these bands will be judged by the Channel [v] All-Star jury that has some of the biggest names from the Indian rock fraternity. These guys have been past carriers of the 'flame' and this time they're here to see, what you got for them!

    Does anyone have the list of the 60 Bands that send their entries vs the number of bands selected to compete. Also if any information about any band sending their entry late(after stipulated date). It is said on another forum that entry to Hard Rock Cafe (venue) is free. However to the best of my knowledge HRC would have a cover charge. Could someone please confirm.

    Asmodeus, if you have any updates it will be great.

    C'mon guys someone has to have the list of the 60 bands that suck so bad that they did not get thru for launchpad. I kinda have a rough idea of most of the bands that sent their entry and are not in the above list but that is based on rumors that I hear. Lord Neo can you check with the organizers and put the list of the bands that suck.

    I found out from the mumbai bands these bands did not get selected.
    Tripwire, Zygnema, Scribe, Groovelab, Demonic Ressurection, Skin cold, Devoid and Depth. There could be more but these are few of the names that sent in their entries and did not get thru. It shows what a tight competition it is. Most importantly the ranking of bands in the amature series.
