Music Madness: Round Two:'70s vs '90s

by Madness Comissioner

It's time for Round Two in our month-long Music Madness event! Just to recap, we've created four brackets ('70s, '80s, '90s and '00s) and picked sixteen one-hit wonders for each one. Each Monday, Wednesday and Friday in March, you'll be able to vote via our Facebook page. You've all been nailing that part so far, and you've narrowed the field down to 32 candidates. Today we're voting on the '70s and the '90s!

Of course the brackets closed last week, but you can still enjoy gawking at everyone else's brackets in this thread. Some of those guessers might just win a real trophy at the end of this thing. You can find out what they all stand for on the master list right here.

Today's face-offs include the hits of the '70s AND the '90s. Take a look at Scott and Kathleen with our cool bracket wall and see the full list of contestants.
