In the even of a tie, the winner will be decided by Excel’s rand() generator. Highest number advances

Madonna is one of the greatest artists who has lived. REM won't be remembered in 20 years.

Like the Raiders and their season, the minute Pink Floyd drop out I'm outta here!
Gina Riley: Oh, come on, John. That’s a bit old hat, the corrupt IOC delegate.
John Clarke: Old hat? Gina, in the scientific world when they see that something is happening again and again and again, repeatedly, they don’t call it old hat. They call it a pattern.

I’m not a Madonna fan but GE is right on this, her impact on the industry dwarfs what ever the legacy QOTSA have

That’s the trouble with this sort of thing.. recency bias reigns

Yeah I think the right side of the draw is the tougher side. I can’t make any predictions.

I still think Foo Fighters have the easiest draw. They’ll clean up REM, think they can take Elvis/REM and might have a battle with Pink Floyd

You could be surprised. I heard they only had one half-arsed trial with the goal of peaking to the final, but may miss the semis altogether.
