Alright, time to crack on with this. As mentioned in PMs to those of you who have made it through, the Quarter Finals will be a best of three series. One choice will be your own, the other will be your opponents and if needed the final one will be a randomly assigned genre/year.

I'm going to post the 8 match ups all together in this thread, but they aren't going to be in any kind of order. So, the first two match ups may not be the same two opponents. Again, this is to keep this more anonymous.

The posters through to the QFs are Leewilson, Aberstone, Veggie Legs, MSB92, Van Der Graaf, JJH, Stevencc and Dave.

I'll post full results at the end of the round.

Hard To Explain is the best choice in any of those matchups, great song. If I had 2001 at any point then I would have chosen The Strokes.

The Calling is an awful way to open the round.

I regret my choices now, two very popular songs are smashing my slightly more obscure choices. I got my tactics wrong.

Ladies and gentlemen, I accept no/little responsibility in the Leewilsonvsdavek-popgate farce of Group B, Round 2. That was all in the box and out of my hands and I was provided with no solid evidence, however I present to you...

FARCE #2: COMPLETELY MY FAULT
The genre for match 4 was actually sent through to me as "Southern rap" and not just "Rap", as I initially read it. Whether or not I would have accepted this as a genre, despite it being quite specific, is kind of irrelevant now. It's currently 11-0 in this tie, but in order to be fair to both of them I felt that the only thing to do was to get the person who initially chose "Southern Rap" to choose a "Rap" tune and vice versa. Therefore Match 4, is going to a be a double legged affair. I would like to sincerely apologise to both participants here.

Quarter Final, Match 4 Injury Time
Genre: Southern Rap/Rap

Mike Jones Feat. Slim Thug & Paul Wall - Still Tippin' VS Eminem - Space Bound
lyrics

I will leave this one open for 24 hours - the rest of the ties will close in 5 and a half hours, as they were originally scheduled to do so. I will be taking the score of the initial Match 4 (Outkast vs Public Enemy) round at that time, too. Only this additional round will stay open for longer.

I can tell you that one of the ties is done and dusted, two are going to a third round and with the other one we're just waiting on 24 hours to pass on the additional choices.
