This track has been released before!

I therefore quote the high council

"(5:03:00 PM) HighCouncilman 1: the only rule is "Not submitted to another compo."
(5:03:01 PM) HighCouncilman 2: but i think it's in pretty poor taste to use an album track"

This track was released waaay before the BotB compo (April 2013, as you can see here
) and no one said anything, so I think it'd be a bit unfair to downvote skinnyhead's song considering many other songs that were released before their BotB submissions weren't downvoted.
This is a good song, by the way. Good job :D

@raphaelgoulart: Equally there have been many entries that have broken this rule and were widely down-voted (Summer Chip 3 had several iirc).

Rules are rules, but its really down to the voter's discretion as to whether or not they chose to downvote an entry. Some people don't and won't care, while other's like me usually either cut an entry's vote in half/all 1. (I'm sorry Stinkbug :( )

The thing with album tracks is that there could be licensing issues as well, esp if botb chose to put it on their bandcamp. Fortunately I don't think such issues will be the case here (theoretically).

the summer chip iii rule (assuming you're referring to silly tune, grief, afternoon at last among others) pertains specifically to songs that were previously released in compos. there is no rule about songs that have been previously released in general as far as i'm aware, so this entry doesn't constitute a rule breaking. sayeth the council

(kommisar is notably famous for doing exactly this in previous majors)

In that case, Who Ha and Kommisar should've been downvoted as well. I don't think trophies should go to second-hand tracks. Especially gold trophies. I will keep an eye on these guys. ;)

If anything I wouldn't want to see BotB turn on into this place where established composers dump their previously-released music and take prizes from people who made songs especially for the compo.
