Music Madness 2016 Official Thread - READ BEFORE VOTING

176 posts in this topic

So today I finished collecting all the info for the tournament. All that's left is to run the list through the Random List Generator gods and determine the first round match order, and then we'll be ready to begin.

Therefore, first matches will begin Sunday evening, March 20th. Probably around 12:30-1AM EST depending on when I get home from work. Then the next matches will run Wednesday evening, and alternate between Sunday and Wednesday until we are finished with the tournament, with the only exception being toward the end of each round where we will take a break to allow all the results to be calculated.

For each contender, I have collected their album art, tracklist, and two Youtube videos that typically will be singles but otherwise will be whatever the artist has provided and in some minor cases, whatever I can find. As before, the album art will link to their Facebook page so you can go there and harass them and/or their fans if you so choose.

Because this came up last year, i will say this: in order to participate in this tournament you must be an active and contributing member. Now, I know life takes some of us by surprise sometime so if you haven't posted in like a month, I can let that slide. If you're unsure if you qualify, ask me first and we can figure it out. If you haven't posted for a year or more, don't expect your votes to count until you've proven you're ready to be an active community member again.

This will be the official thread for the tournament where we can discuss results as they come in and whatnot. Feel free to also use this thread to discuss any concerns and ask any questions about the tournament.

With that said, looking forward to kicking this off on Sunday. :)

I can't seem to tell whether or not you're being sarcastic right now.

Nope! Totally serious. Seemed like a pretty random song lyric to make a pun about, if that's what you were doing.

I guess I got the pun. I was more like "why".

Set 1 is now closed. Fall Out Boy, Finger Eleven, Falling Up, We Are The Ocean, Coldrain, Good Riddance, and Tesseract all progress. Still waiting for a verdict on While She Sleeps vs. Alesana.

So far 10 Years, Wavves, Dead Letter Circus, The Dear Hunter, Saint Asonia, and Kutless are moving forward.

Waiting for the results from Refused vs. Blur and Plain White Ts vs. Mutemath.

Pen, can you sticky a post or edit your original post for the winners for each round and set? It's going to get crazy w/ reactions (I imagine, if remembering previous years) to find the winners each round. Just throwing it out there.

Only if you can promise me you'll use this thread to discuss closed matches instead of bumping the threads.

As promised I've updated the first post with the winners. Set 3 is closed.

I'm a bit disappointed that Rob Thomas and New Politics lost as I found Red Line Tragedy to be pretty generic compared to New Politics' upbeat power pop and while I enjoy Sleeping With Sirens, I just feel Rob Thomas is a much stronger songwriter.

But alas, we all can't get what we want.
