Not as good as last round but it'll do pig, it'll do.

1) Capital Cities - Safe and Sound
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=47dtFZ8CFo8
I think last month I rediscovered this song and started to like it. What a coincidence that you're sending it now but theres no complains. The trumpet part of the song is what stands out the most, you don't hear it very often in mainstream music and when you do it normally sucks. Too bad these guys ended up being a one hit wonder because I liked their sound and simplicity. Also is this video not the coolest thing youve ever seen?

2) R.E.M. - Its The End Of The World
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JsxavPANO8s
Originally I was gonna make the theme something about the end of the world but I knew this song was gonna be sent. Lol turns out it was sent anyways. I have a love / hate relationship with R.E.M. but how can anyone listen to this song and not try to sing along? I just love this. And based on the shit going on, its truly the end of the world right now.


3) Green Day - Tales Of Another Broken Home
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tTSEoQnDgzY
I love Green Day but they're known to have their bad songs just like every other artist. "American Idiot" is IMO their best album and almost without flaws. Their album defined my high school experience almost lol. I hate that this is less than 3 minutes but its to the point and the simple lyrics always work best for them. Decent but not great though.

4) Britney Spears - Break The Ice
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eQFIKP9rGhQ
This doesn't sound like any other pop song from Britney Spears but I kinda like it. Sounds like a russian underground club song with a techno beat. Not sure what the whole anime video was about but I weirdly digged it also.

5) Something Corporate - Hurricane
First of all you sent the wrong link to the wrong song (Me & The Moon). Massive fail. I actuall loved the other song and was ready to eliminate you because I thought you had failed to follow the rules but luckily Merriska wrote the correct song title in her PM and I searched for this song. Come on guys sending a correct link is not hard. While I was praising the other song, this one is just okay. Sounds like boring 00s garage music.

6) Rock of Ages cast - Rock You Like A Hurricane
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZyxyWw7a4q0
Why did you not send the original instead? Also why does this sound like 2 children are singing? Yes I realize their voices are high pitched but not sure why you didn't even bother to listen to this. I won't complain too much about that because I already had 1 person sent me a wrong link and other person who sent a link that didn't work (I let that one slide). If you had sent the original you would've ranked much better than this sad Glee version.


Last Place:

7) Athletes - Hurricane
The link doesn't work in the US so I had to look for a link myself. I hope its the same song you sent that I'm listening to. The song itself was boring just okay, and I was having trouble not getting distracted and just wanted it to it on the first listen. I did give this about 4 listens to not be biased but couldn't force myself to it. This the type of music you hear while in the changing rooms at American Eagle store. (thats an American clothing store btw my foreign friend).


Whoever sent Athletes is eliminated and I thank you for joining and giving your time to the game.

I'm sorryyyyy Javi. I don't usually make mistakes like that. I had the video open to send you it, but then I opened another tab to send Murr the link for the Me and the Moon song and I must have copied that one again to send to you.

Shocker elimination, especially after a great last round. Thanks for playing Tom.

This next theme will be easier. You will be sending a song of choice, however the only rule is you cannot send anything that has been in the Top Hot 100 Billboard charts. US Billboard only. Best of luck to the final 6!

As always you will be sending songs to Merriska.

Oh no, I hope this is not the start of some curse.. uhoh

(I do really like the song I sent though, and I know the lyrics so well I didn't even have to do research for the theme haha. And yea, the video is super cool too)

It could be because I'm extremely hungover, but I'm not 100% clear on the theme. It has to be a song on the US Billboard? Or nothing that's been on any Billboard charts?

Nothing that has charted on the Billboard Hot 100 ever. So I recommend looking for something obscure.

Another excellent round!

1) STRFKR - While I'm Alive
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VoX9WIM6OoY
Funky is the word that came to mind. The dancing and weirdly entertaining video helped, that sad ending though. Life is short and we must live it how we want to. Loved the song and the lyrics. I'm a sucker for funky beats that don't over do it.


2) Breaking Benjamin - Angels Fall
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9zFfRSeA1ls
Another song that sounds like it would've cracked Billboard. I think if this was an early 00s or late 90s song it would've easily made the charts. Unfortunately these days rock music is DEAD and all teens care about is edm and stupid fad music. I had never heard this song before and I'm not a fan of this band but I loved this. Maybe I should consider giving this band a second chance.

3) Electric Guest - American Daydream
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yEFAQg3vPr8
You guys are surprising me with these submissions. Its a shame all the songs that are never really discovered by the mainstream people (like me sometimes) and would probably be loved by more people with the right promotion. The song and vibe from the song is hypnoctic. Also the guy singing reminds me of that singer from the "Sweather Weather" song lol

4) Ima Robot - Greenback Boogie
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Slgj96aXgQk
An Interesting video to go with an interesting song. Actually the video reminded me of that scene in Cabin In The Woods with all the monsters in their rooms. The song kind of gives a 60s vibe mixed with current alternative sounds. I did catch myself moving my head to the beat which is always a plus. lol


5) Alkaline Trio - Sadie
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fTu3Zk9Q_Rs
Ehh, an okay song with okay lyrics and sound. Don't want to sound a negative Mark with judging songs but some songs get my attention off the bat and others I know i won't care for right away. I do think the chorus of this song is good and the last minute of the song takes an interesting turn so theres that.


Last Place:

6) Rita Ora - Your Song
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RsELrcVNzG0
This sounds like something that would crack the top 100 in the charts but I checked and it passes the theme lol. This is just not my cup of tea though, the beat and basic production don't make for a memorable song. At this point you should kind of get the sense of what I like and don't like by now and if you think i would like this then you haven't been paying attention. lol


I'm sorry to whoever sent Rita Ora but it just wasn't a good submission. Thanks for playing.

I'm obsessed with the one I sent (Alkaline Trio) at the moment. It's about one of the women who was in Charles Manson's cult and killed Sharon Tate. The last part with the woman speaking is from actual things Sadie said about Manson.

Thanks for playing Tara, you were in the bottom almost every round but you still lasted.

For this next theme you will be sending in 2 songs. The theme is Women of Alternative. Every top song so far has been by a man but I know there’s some good female artists out there too. You will be sending 2 songs that are of the alternative genre by a female artist or female lead singer from a band (alternative rock is also acceptable). As usual whoever gets last will be eliminated, but if you get top song you are automatically safe.

Make sure the song is alternative before sending. Also there are other female singers from bands besides Paramore & No Doubt so don’t be lazy. Send your songs to Merriska and good luck!

This was the toughest round yet.

1) The Cranberries - Zombie
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6Ejga4kJUts
Saved the best for last I see. Like "I Think I'm Paranoid", I also heard this song in a Guitar Hero game. Its sad that I discovered alot of good songs through that game but obviously they were before my time and in my defense I would'be discovered them anyway. Dolores' irish yoodle voice is so unique and mixing it with rock is just genius.

2) Garbage - I Think I'm Paranoid
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ypr18UmxOas
All the comments are talking about how they knew the song from Gran Turismo 2 and I heard it from Guitar Hero lol .Its a great song that brings the best alternative rock and unlike other songs I have never gotten sick of this


3) Wye Oak - Civilian
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Mssm8Ml5sOo
Wiki says its indie but does sound alternative rock especially with that guitar solo at the end. Plus those two genres are interchangeable so I shouldn't be so damn picky and should just listen and judge. This was a nice sound with the singer's soft gentle voice to go along well. I'll go as far as to say this was my favorite song of the round that I had never heard before. So yeah I liked it, happy?

4) 4 Non Blondes - What's Up?
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6NXnxTNIWkc
When I was younger my mom use to have a friend of hers live with us for a few months and that lady would play this song 24/7. I think it was the only song she ever liked. Now every time I hear this song I think of her which sucks cause I never even liked her. I always love the use of guitar in songs if done right and "Whats Up" is one of those perfect guitar songs done right.

5) The Last Internationale - I'll Be Alright
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6o2eHwMhXHs
I'm loving everything this round its hard to pick what I hate or love the most. I try not to be biased to the songs Ive heard before and while I've never heard this before I still quite enjoyed it. The woman who sings in this song sounds like a country artist. Maybe shes in the wrong genre but I don't blame her for doing alternative over boring country.

6) Evanescence - My Immortal
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5anLPw0Efmo
Every girl in my school knew the lyrics to this song, and shamelessly I almost did too at some point thanks to Daredevil. This isn't a rock alternative or alternative song though (Wiki) but I'm sure you probably thought it was. I get in such a depressing mood listening to this no matter how my day is feeling and now I feel like I've just been broken up with.

7) The Pretty Reckless - Take Me Down
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BQpZv2r8fb4
Cindy Lou is all grown up. This was a nice way to start the round with a nice almost rock ballad. Wiki says this is a rock and not alternative rock song but I won't dwell too much on little details for this round. I'll be different if I was doing rounds where I was looking for "words". Anyways, never heard Taylor Momsen actually sing before but I was surprised with her raspy voice. Not sure what I was expecting her to sound like but not something decent thats for sure.


8) Meredith Brooks - Bitch
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_ivt_N2Zcts
This song has 90s written all over. I love the catchy chorus where shes describing herself as a bitch among other things but this is a contender for being annoying after a few listens. I can see myself singing the chorus and then skipping to the next track after it finishes.

9) Hole - Celebrity Skin
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O3dWBLoU--E
I first discovered this song while judging one of the KJ Idol games years ago. Good times. This song has always been a bit polarizing to me because I hate Courtney Love but I can see why this song was a hit. I know it won't be the last time I hear this in idol games but Ive warmed up to it.


Last Place:

10) She & Him - You Really Got A Hold On Me
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YAvnOWc5uD0
Oh wow is that Zoey Deschanel? I knew she sang but I never bothered looking up her music. She has a great voice but I was bored and that always seems to be the problem with the least ranked songs in this game. Also I dont really think this is even alternative, it sounds like a nice cover of a Smokey Robinson song and thats it.


So whoever sent She & Him has been eliminated, unless of course they also sent The Cranberries which would mean that Celebrity Skin has been eliminated. Either way whoever is eliminated thank you for joining.

Wow !! El numero uno !!
I didn't send Bitch, but I always loved the line:
"I'm a bitch, I'm a tease,
I'm a goddess on my knees,
when you hurt when you suffer
I'm your angel undercover."
