Here are the results from the Sweet 16. Looks like the Elite 8 will be a war!
#1 Led Zeppelin – Immigrant Song vs. #5 Prince – I would Die 4 U
Well, the kid may have put up a good fight against his dad and Morris Day & the Time, but this time, he was no match for the Thunder brought down by Plant & Page.
Winner: Led Zeppelin
#2 The Beatles – A Day In The Life vs. #3 Bruce Springsteen – Born To Run
At the tip, the Boss took a quick lead and looked like he was going to cruise to victory. However, at half time, Bruce was visited by an awkward dancing Courtney Cox and ruined any sort of mojo he had. McLennon & company then began getting better by fixing a hole where the rain was coming in by raining some long distance bombs of their own.
Winner: The Beatles
#1 The Clash – Debaser vs. #4 Pixies – Debaser
This was a tough one. I will just say that the votes did not reflect how difficult this one was because almost everyone who voted for it mentioned how difficult it was. After the game, both teams met at half court to shake hands and praise each other for their rockin’ efforts.
Winner: The Clash
#2 The Ramones – Blitzkrieg Bop vs. #6 Pink Floyd – Fearless
One of two #6 seeds in the sweet 16, Pink Floyd put up decent fight, but just could not match the 3 minute 3 chord power of the Ramones.
Winner: The Ramones
100 Club Bracket
#1 Rolling Stones – She’s A Rainbow vs. #4 Black Sabbath – War Pigs
This was the Villanova Pitt game of this round. A back and forth matchup turned in some of the most clutch performances of the tournament. When the Stones started off slow, Mick brought them back with his range. When Sabbath trailed, Ozzy put the team on his shoulders slayed the dragon of doubt. In the end, Ozzy’s frontcourt dominance and baby breaking skyhook sent the Stones home and the Pigs of War to the Elite 8.
#2 Bob Dylan – Like A Rolling Stone vs. #3 The Animals – We Gotta Get Out of this Place
No contest here. Dylan and his harmonica blew out the animals. They didn’t have to go home, but they gotta get out of this tournament.
#1 The Who – My Generation vs. #5 Talking Heads – This Must Be The Place (Naïve Melody)
David Byrne and company started this game off hot. They felt there were right were they wanted to be because The Who benched Keith Moon because he failed to show up at a mandatory work out and a pre-game meeting. Moon was then allowed to get into the game after the half and he brought the Who back from a double-digit deficit to take the lead for good.
Winner: The Who
#2 David Bowie – Space Oddity vs. #6 Elvis – Suspicious Minds
One of the most hyped matchups of the tourney put the King up against the Starman. Well, it looks like the king took the chameleon of rock for granted, because Ziggy knocked the King off his throne, and he did it convincingly.
