This is a tournament to determine the best song from the big six grunge groups, during the prime years of grunge, so the focus is on Alice In Chains, Nirvana, Pearl Jam, Smashing Pumpkins, Soundgarden, and Stone Temple Pilots (plus supergroup projects).

How it works:
1. There will be a 128 song song pre-tournament tournament consisting of major b-sides, Temple of the Dog, Mad Season, and two major albums that fell outside the 91-96 timespan (Bleach and Facelift).
2. While we will play this out to a winner, the top 16 songs will advance into the main tournament
3. The main tournament consists of every major album from 1991-1996, plus those top 16 songs (complete list is below). There was no way to fit in Iron Gland, Pry to, Master/Slave, Stupid Mop, I'm Going Crazy (hidden song on Gish)and the untitled hidden song from Sap, but all other 'hidden/filler' tracks are included
4. Single elimination. Voting generally lasts one day, and will typically close out between 8-9 AM est, depending on my schedule.
5. Ties will carry over into the next round, unless a tie prevents the tournament from moving forward, in which case voting will remain open for specified intervals of time.
6. Enjoy! There is a ton of great music here to rediscover

Is it possible to get YouTube links to both songs in each matchup? At least through the first few rounds would be really nice. There is a lot of material here I am not familiar with just by name.

No problem. I'm not familiar with most of these B-sides so I had to look them up anyway.

If you or anyone else wants to embed, feel free.

I had to do the same for several, and I would embed but I'm too retarded to figure out how.

I am here to vote against everything Smashing Pumpkins. Not because I don't think they belong, but because I loathe them.

Man, that song sucks. "Wanna go for a ride?" Yeah, I do. Let's go to Home Depot so I can get some giant nails to drive in my ears.

I still remember a Mad Magazine comic on Lollapalooza or something back around this time, and one of the "jokes" was an audience member complaining about the sound during a Smashing Pumpkins set, something like "They've got all these ridiculous noises I can barely hear the singer!", and the sound tech guy goes "Hmm, you're right, better turn up the instruments."

I also remember getting caught listening to my brother's Pumpkins CDs when he walked in the back door while I thought nobody was home and caught me jumping around the lounge. That was a fight.
