Division G is done and Radiohead is the name of the game for today’s results. Before going through the scores though, exciting announcement: the brackets for Division A and Division B are now available! The Bracketology tab has more info on the methodology of seeding, and will house brackets as they are created. Now the scores:
Sulk (Radiohead) defeats Deceptacon (Le Tigre), 78.5 to 62. No one seemed to really like either of these songs so much- Sulk had an average score of 5.6, good enough to beat Deceptacon’s 4.4, but the lowest average by a full point of any other song advancing so far in the entire tournament. Can’t count ’em out, though- just ask the Seattle Seahawks.
Don’t Speak takes Your Cheating Heart, 87-82.5.
Paranoid Android squeaks by Ain’t No Sunshine, 102-100, giving Radiohead a sweep for the day.
Cherub Rock takes Daughter, 98.5-90.5.
Van never really got going here: With or Without You over Sweet Thing, 108.5-95.
Finally, in the most closely contested match, Natalie’s vote with minutes to spare gives Roll Away Your Stone enough to touch out Little Plastic Castles inside the flags, 94.5-94.
Brutal day from an artist survivability perspective: Le Tigre, Hank Williams, Bill Withers, and Ani DiFranco all bow out of the tournament, and Van Morrison goes to 0-2 with two songs remaining.
