Best Video Game Song Tournament, 1996-2000: Playoffs, Round 1 (Part 6 of 9)

It’s round 1 of the playoffs! 651 songs have qualified, with the top 373 earning byes to the next round (if you’re wondering, that’s every group champion plus the top 21 wild cards). The remaining 278 will square off. Each day will feature either 30 or 32 of these songs.

Since it’s the playoffs, groups will be active until 9:00 am Pacific the day after they post, or for roughly 24 hours. You can listen to a playlist of today’s songs (in matchup order) here.

Or you can work ahead!

Two ties. I broke for Deus Ex’s “UNATCO” over Space Station Silicon Valley’s “The Battery Farm and Suikoden II’s “The Chase” over Moon: Remix RPG Adventure’s “Day Of The Space Festival (MoonDisc Version)” (an aside; the intro has the cadence of an Off The Hook cover of The Chipmunk Song (Christmas Don’t Be Late). Once you hear it you can’t unhear it)
