Sorry for the late post- the snowquester was just so crazy. Fighting for survival in 2 inches in slush got me off track on prepping this. Moving on to good news- we have reached the last day of matches for the Round! We are down to 36 songs left alive in our battle, 18 on each side. Time to snip the last two fallen challengers from the left and the right brackets so we can get going to the Round of 32!
Votes are due by Friday, March 9th at 11:00 PM EST. Playlist is here, full rules and philosophy here, and the tournament bracket is here. See you in the comments!

Results from last round:
“Baba O’Riley” stomped all over “Tamacun,” 72.2-56. Bob Dylan-James Brown was a little closer, but “Tangled Up In Blue” comes out on top 63.4-58. Chuck Berry is looking super strong out of the gates with his “Roll Over Beethoven” win on Gaslight Anthem. With a full point higher of an average than #1 seed Rock and Roll Radio, we’ve suddenly got a compelling Ramones-Berry match for the next round.
