The Nirvana catalog struggled early on, but #2 Smells Like Teen Spirit looks like a bonafide contender, despite the gallant performance of #15 Solsbury Hill (Peter Gabriel), 102-98. Peter Gabriel, it’s time to take you home. (Artist #188) Solsbury Hill also hits the Wall of 10s in defeat (Guillermo, Catholic).
#10 Laid (James) upsets #7 Instant Karma (John Lennon), 98-85 . This sends solo Lennon and Yoko Ono (Artist #189) out of the tournament, but Lennon lives on through the numerous Beatles tunes that remain. The tie between Laid and Solsbury Hill confirms what a good matchup that would have been.
#3 Somebody to Love (Jefferson Airplane) held off a pesky #14 Straight to Hell (Clash), 98-85.
#6 Golden Slumbers (Beatles) makes the Wall of 10s (G and Danno) in defeating #11 Good Lovin’ (Young Rascals), 105-94. The Young Rascals are artist #190 to bounce.
