Our first chunk of songs are officially eliminated, as we move past 512 total songs voted on in this tournament. There won’t be anything really juicy here until September, but I’ll keep it around as a tribute for the fallen songs. Plus, the projected cutoff can help in fretting!


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. 2 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+3 in a play-in round.

We’ll be “feathering” groups; voting on group 24 will be active until Friday July 16th at 10:00PM Pacific. Group 23 is still active until 10 PM tonight; vote here. Group 25 will start Friday and be active until Sunday, and so on. Please listen to every song! Don’t just vote name recognition.

You can listen to all songs in group 24 in this handy YouTube playlist! (Don’t worry, songs will also be linked in the comments, where voting will take place)

You can work ahead if you like:

Or listen to every song here.

Again, voting for group 24 is open until Friday July 16th at 10:00PM Pacific
