Last Band Standing: Game 6

...or the story of Adrock and Dan

NOTICE: Voting extended until 5 PM Monday, April 30th. Hi all- this format will be a little strange but bear with me, because I am off internet all weekend as soon as I put this up. We’ll have a shorter list of six songs (because the opponents did not get me their nominations. I forgot to get back-up songs for this situation, which is what Nos did when he was managing. Bear with me.) and we’ll do the last four along with whomever survives the weekend on Monday. First, however- the results.

“Kashmir” fights back and wins a second straight match on the edge of elimination, defeating “Superstition” 119.5-107.6. This series is all tied up at 3 a piece. And unfortunately I don’t have Adrock’s nomination, so it will stay that way for a few days.

“With Or Without You” over “Pretty Noose,” 118.7-90.5. U2 with 3-2 lead…and I don’t have Dan’s nomination either, so the same.

“Tom Sawyer” and Rush stay alive by defeating “Girl With The Tattooed Hands,” 90.9-64.5. Atmosphere still has a 1 game lead at 3-2.

“Melissa” defeats Tom Petty’s “Even The Losers,” 87.1-79 and the Allman Brothers are 1 game away from victory. Jenn lays down the law with her Game 6 nom.

“God Only Knows” joins the Wall of 10’s if we had one, and defeats “It Makes No Difference” 105.2-90.4. Beach Boys are now 1 game away from victory as well.

Listen at this link here– votes due by Monday April 30th at 5 PM.

About g-mo

The day I was born, Michael Jackson's Thriller album was at the top of the Billboard 200. I've been trying my best to live up to that expectation ever since.

    Every Hungry Woman (Allman Brothers) 3
    American Girl (Tom Petty) 7 It’s just that much better.

    Red Barchetta (Rush) 2- Neil Peart is the only redeeming thing about Rush.
    Little Math You (Atmosphere) 9.5- All Atmosphere is solid. Especially this.

    California Girls (Beach Boys) 8
    The Weight (The Band) 9 Damnit. Beach Boys and The Band are both remarkable. Why these two in combat??

    • Hey Sara- so for the first round we tried to match up bands based on genre/closeness of sound rather than seeding (since we don’t have anything to go on anyways.) The Beach Boys and The Band are definitely two of the greatest acts in history, and seeing them battle it out is part of the fun. However for the next round, the bands that advance will be matched based on average score across all of their votes. Hope that explains!

  7. Adam S says:

    Same here…. was out of town all weekend.

  8. George says:

    Red Barchetta (Rush) vs. Little Math You (Atmosphere) 5.5 – 5

    California Girls (Beach Boys) vs. The Weight (The Band) 4 – 5

  9. Every Hungry Woman: 7.8
    American Girl: 8

    Red Barcheta: 5
    Little Math You: 7.4

    Ooooh I really like the horn. Reminds me of dip trip flip Fantasia.

    California Girls: 8.6
    The Weight: 10

    California Girls really hit the spot, but the Weight is immortal.

    Every Hungry Woman (Allman Brothers): 8
    American Girl (Tom Petty): 7.5

    I know American Girl is one of those Tom Petty classics and it’s definitely one his better songs. It’s certainly a fun and catchy song and the more I listen to it the more I enjoy it. I also do enjoy the classic rock sounds coming out of the Allman Brothers, loose women and rock ‘n roll go hand in hand. I’ve listened to each song over 3 times now constantly changing the scores. This one has to go to The Allman Brothers by a small margin.

    Red Barchetta (Rush): X
    Little Math You (Atmosphere): X

    California Girls (Beach Boys): 8
    The Weight (The Band): 8.5

    Another tough match-up, both huge songs for each group. Each song has a completely different sound and both easily stand on their own. The Weight just might be the better of the two. I’m all for songs about the beautiful women of the world, but The Weight just goes into some heavy (no pun intended) stuff. The Band gets the edge here.

    Every Hungry Woman (Allman Brothers) vs. American Girl (Tom Petty)
    6 : 9.5
    As a potential future opponent of Tom Petty, I’m pretty happy to see this guaranteed winner out of the way.

    Red Barchetta (Rush) vs. Little Math You (Atmosphere)
    7 : 6
    Loving those Rush vocals, but not sure this had to be a 6-minute song.

    California Girls (Beach Boys) vs. The Weight (The Band): N/A
    I love Game 7s.
