2nd Round - Whiskey-A-Go-Go & Hacienda Brackets

And now we move on to the 2nd round.

Since we have been doing 8 matchups per voting period, I say we continue doing to that to speed up the process. I've been terribly busy lately, so let's say, just get these into me by Sunday Night. I am sure the actual NCAA Tournament will take away from some people's free time this weekend too.

Here are the second round matchups for the games in the Whiskey-A-Go-Go and Hacienda brackets.

#1 The Who – My Generation
vs.
#8 The Smiths – How Soon is Now?

vs.
#4 Nirvana – Drain You


#6 Elvis – Suspicious Minds
vs.
#14 Van Halen – Hot For Teacher


#10 Arcade Fire – Neighborhood #1 (Tunnels)
vs.
#2 David Bowie – Space Oddity



Hacienda Bracket – 2nd Round

#1 Led Zeppelin – Immigrant Song
vs.
#8 Radiohead – The Bends


#5 Prince – I Would Die 4 U
vs.
#4 Sex Pistols – God Save The Queen


#6 Elvis Costello – (What’s So Funny ‘Bout) Peace Love & Understanding
vs.
#3 Bruce Springsteen – Born to Run

#1 The Who – My Generation over #8 The Smiths – How Soon is Now? In what turns out to be no contest, The Smiths go down even with one of their best songs. Morrissey has reason to mope until next year. Winner: The Who

#4 Nirvana – Drain You over #5 Talking Heads – This Must Be The Place (Naïve Melody). This was a tough pick. In the end, there was just too much Kurt Cobain. Hell, I am singing "One baby to another says I'm lucky I met you..." as I write this. Winner: Nirvana

#14 Van Halen – Hot For Teacher over #6 Elvis – Suspicious Minds. 1. Fuck Elvis. 2. If this were a basketball game Alex Van Halen's wicked drumming would have scared Elvis' fat ass off the court. Winner: VH

#2 David Bowie – Space Oddity over #10 Arcade Fire – Neighborhood #1 (Tunnels). Bowie is going to be tough to beat in any tournament, and as much as I like the offering by the Arcade Fire, this song will not be sung in 30 years, and Win Butler will not be in a remake of Labrynth. Besides, Wayne Coyne says he's an arrogant prick. Winner: Bowie.




Hacienda Bracket – 2nd Round

#1 Led Zeppelin – Immigrant Song over #8 Radiohead – The Bends. Goddamn, this should have been a tough matchup. However, the Led Zeppelin juggernaut keeps on running roughshod over the competition.Winner: Zep.

#4 Sex Pistols – God Save The Queen over #5 Prince – I Would Die 4 U. Sid lives (for another round)! The punks from the UK beat down the purple warrior from MN.

#3 Bruce Springsteen – Born to Run over #6 Elvis Costello – (What’s So Funny ‘Bout) Peace Love & Understanding. This was the toughest pick for me in this tournament to date. Both Elvi go down this round. I am rolling with the Boss on this one. It is the only time NJ would be picked over the UK. Winner: The Boss.

#2 The Beatles – A Day In The Life over #7 Rod Stewart – Maggie May. The Lennon-McCartney dominance continues. This matchup was no contest. The possible Zeppelin vs. Beatles matchup in the coming round is going to be an exciting one. Winner: Beatles.

I know it is super late, so I'm going to get to the point:

Whiskey-A-Go-Go bracket

#1 The Who - My Generation
#4 Nirvana - Drain You
#14 Van Halen - Hot for Teacher
#2 David Bowie - Space Oddity (what a tough choice!)

Hacienda Bracket

#1 Led Zeppelin - Immigrant Song (very begrudgingly)
#5 Prince - I Would Die 4 U
#6 Elvis Costello - (What's So Funny 'Bout) Peace, Love and Understanding. This is the absolutely hardest vote so far in the tourney. The Boss really brings it with Born to Run, but I gotta throw a bone to the better Elvis in the competition.
#2 The Beatles - A Day in the Life. Sorry, Rod. You never stood a chance.
