Our old favorite “Halberd” is back again, this time in a chilled out acoustic instrumentation courtesy of Kirby’s Epic Yarn. It’s enough to earn it top spot in the group, and the current #1 seed.

Want You Gone did well enough to take 1st in the group, but it’s a decidedly less dominating performance than its older sister. Will its underdog spirit power it to victory anyway, or is everyone who professes to be burnt out on 15-year-old memes a big liar?


It’s time for group play! We have 1,866 songs this time, in 24-song groups. That means 77 full groups, plus a 78th group of 18. For the group stage, vote for as many songs as you like! Songs will be ranked based on how many upvotes they got compared to how many people voted in that round. 1 After all groups are done, the top 512 songs from across all groups will advance to the playoffs.

…unless! After group play, but before the playoffs proper, there will be a wild card runoff! If an individual game places more than 10 songs into the top 512, songs 11+ per game will face off against songs 513+2 in a play-in round.

We’ll be “feathering” groups; voting on group 6 will be active until Tuesday June 22nd at 10:00PM Pacific. Group 7 will start Tuesday and be active until Wednesday, and so on. Please listen to every song! Don’t just vote name recognition.

You can listen to all songs in group 6 in this handy YouTube playlist! (Don’t worry, songs will also be linked in the comments, where voting will take place)
