Good morning y'all and welcome to the draw for the 1989

· · Web · 2 · 2 · 9

a reminder of the guidelines I use for these: this is a two-stage event, with a group stage and a knockout stage; no live albums, no compilations (sorry, Minor Threat), one album per group, entirely at my discretion; ties will be broken up by whoever is in the higher pod for the draw

one row, one group; the action starts tomorrow!

1989 - Group A

1989 - Group B

1989 - Group C

1989 - Group D

1989 - Group F

1989 - Group G

1989 - Group H

@MrsMouse either is fine, but also neither is fine; the Selection Committee endorses all forms of voting, including not voting

@derek see, losing to The Cure's best album? An acceptable end for Amy and Emily

@derek if Indigo Girls loses to like, Aerosmith or Motley Crue I’m going to burn this place to the fucking ground

@neoncoughh my official prognosticator's pick is that it sneaks into the round of 16 where it gets trounced by Paul's Boutique

@derek that’s fine, as long as it loses to something good

@derek I’m late to the game… how are evaluating the winners?

@micah I'm going to start running some polls tomorrow; you vote for your fave, top two in each group go to the knockout round, finals are Saturday, we crown a champ on Sunday

@derek oh fun! I didn’t realize it was crowdsourced. Looking forward to participating 😃

@derek there is a clear winner, or at least a clear final matchup, here, and I'm gonna throw a temper tantrum if the last 2 standing aren't Paul's Boutique and Pretty Hate Machine

@derek I did think of Doolittle shortly after I posted this but I stand by what I said
