Friends, at some point in this contest someone was going to have to be the first to have their back against the wall. Unfortunately for U2, that honor goes to them. This battle was the closest yet in terms of all three songs staying within fighting range of each other (the gap between 3rd and 1st was about 17 points.) The gold medal goes to “Hey Hey What Can I Do” as Zeppelin racks up 136.65 points. The silver medal was close, but the Beach Boys pulled away on the night votes. “Help Me Rhonda” receives 125.35 points, while U2’s “New Years Day” pulls a close bronze with 119.4 points.

With his back against the wall, Coach Dan turns to the ace. We’ll see if it’s enough to stave off elimination. Game 4 songs are below, playlist is here, votes are due by 10:00 PM on Friday, June 1st. Best of luck to all.
