-Introducing a slight format change to the matchup appearance.


Okay okay, the round of 48 was a bit better, but now we’re getting down to the songs that are supposed to make this interesting. Fewer “fluke” songs are left, and things just may end up getting a little more violent!



1) Hello Time Bomb(29-10 --- Ranked #14) vs Giant (27-11 --- Ranked #18)

---“Hello Time Bomb” defeated:

Round 1: Can’t Get Shot in the Back If You Don’t Run: 16-4

Round 2: 21st Century Living: 13-6

---“Giant” defeated:

Round 1: She’s Got a New Disguise: 12-4

Round 2: Fated: 15-7

My Pick: Hello Time Bomb.. READY TO GO.. READY TO GO ON.. to the next round!!!

Prediction: Since a lot of people got sick of HTB as it was a heavily played single, I’m thinking Giant takes it..


2) Prime Time Deliverance (33-9 --- Ranked #8) vs Sort of a Protest Song (32-12 –Ranked #15)

---“Prime Time Deliverance” defeated:

Round 1: In Love With a Bad Idea: 16-4

Round 2: Lullaby For The New World Order: 17-5

---“Sort of a Protest Song” defeated:

Round 1: Native Son: 16-4

Round 2: Generation X-Wing: 16-8

My Pick: After hours of thinking, I finally decided to go with Prime Time Deliverance.. although I’m sure I would think about it again if I had a chance to.

Prediction: This could very well be THE hardest pairing to have to choose from.. two huge songs, but I think Prime Time Deliverance takes the win.


3) Running For Home (42-5 -- Ranked #3) vs Load Me Up (27-18--- Ranked #23)

---“Running For Home” defeated:

Round 1: Carmelina: 19-4

Round 2: Man From Harold Wood 23-1

---“Load Me Up” defeated:

Round 1: I Miss New Wave: 15-8

Round 2: Truffle Pigs 12-10

My Pick: Load Me Up.. not enough upbeat songs are gonna make it in.. we need something!

Prediction: Running For Home takes the win.

1. "Hello Time Bomb"

Personally, it's my favorite Matt Good song. I bought BM when MGB was on its way out, so I missed the overplaying completely.


2. "Primetime Deliverance"

Actually, I don't like either of the songs. That's just me, though.


3. "Load Me Up"

I love "Running for Home", but there's something about "Load Me Up".

I was listening to LOTGA...

and holy moly.. Fearless is such an underrated song.. as is She's Got a New Disguise and Native Son and Every Name is My Name.. and Radio Bomb.. god what an awesome album! Plus you have your 2 heavyweights in Symbolistic White Walls and Omissions of the Omen.. and the song I'm currently in love with.. The War is Over.. its like 3 songs in one!!!
