The groups have been modified for this round. As you may recall from the previous round each group was broken into genre, this time the groups are based on the number of votes each act received in the previous round. (If an artist finished first in their group, they remain in that numerical group. If an artist finishes 2nd in a group, they gets re-assigned to the next group. etc. etc. It's pretty simple)
Choose up to TWO artists from each group.
Group One Pearl Jam 2Pac Counting Crows Tom Petty
Group Two Beck Nirvana Snoop Dogg Sublime
Group Three No Doubt Prince Soundgarden Dr. Dre
Group Four Beastie Boys Presidents of the United States of America Elliot Smith Alice in Chains
Group Five Rage Against the Machine Oasis Ween James
Group Six Spacehog Nine Inch Nails Blur Neutral Milk Hotel
Group Seven Pixies Chumbawamba Tool the Cure
Group Eight Radiohead Flaming Lips Weatus Primus
Group Nine Daft Punk Smashing Pumpkins NOFX Salt N Pepa
Group Ten Alanis Morissette Massive Attack Weezer Rancid
Group Eleven Green Day Fiona Apple Portishead Sonic Youth
Group Twelve R.E.M. The Offspring Tracy Chapman the Chemical Bros
PS I propose we do "Top Albums of 2011" starting in December
we already have a tournament slated for December... but you're welcomed to create a tournament for January. After the Egg Nog Cup (Holiday Movie Tournament) i'm taking a break from moderating the tournaments.
