Facing elimination, U2 went with its famous ode to Martin Luther King, Jr. and fought to compete for one more day. However, it wasn’t a complete victory for the Irish, as Led Zeppelin’s “Good Times, Bad Times” took the gold with 99.8 points. “Pride (In The Name of Love)” grabs the silver (87.4 points), while the Beach Boys surfs off course into their first strike. “Let Him Run Wild” pulls a paltry 57.5 points- let’s hope Coach Janos can draw up some fancy X’s and O’s during the break for his boys. Current standings:
Beach Boys: X
Led Zeppelin: X
U2: X X
Game 5 coming right up. U2 still a game from elimination, but if they can stay alive there’ll be another band in that position next time. What will happen? Only time will tell, but there should be an #MD5 voting block tomorrow. Songs are here, and votes are due by Monday, June 4th at 5:00 PM. Good luck to all, and good luck to all marathoners!
