The Final 4 Battles of the Sweet 16

Posted: August 7, 2014 by nickd0913 in Uncategorized

We have arrived at the final 4 match ups of the Sweet 16.  You have some tough choices with these brackets but I have faith that you will make the right choices.  So let’s get this shit started.

 

Led Zeppelin vs. Michael Jackson

You have one of the greatest bands of all time going up against the King of Pop.  I personally think you should vote for the band that did not have their penises examined by the LAPD.

Check out this absolutely fantastic version of “For Your Life”.  Jimmy Page is the man and Robert Plant is a dick for not going on tour with Zeppelin.

 

I can tell you that the day after this aired this was all anyone was talking about at Nativity Catholic School.  At 11 years old this was the coolest thing I had ever seen.

 

 

 

Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers vs. Buddy Holly

This is a great match up.  Tom Petty is in my top 5 of all time but Buddy Holly is pretty much a genius with an incredible amount of great songs in a very short amount of time.

 

One of my favorite songs of all time with the added bonus of Eddie Vedder helping out.

 

It is hard to believe this song was recorded in 1957.  Way ahead of his time and I think he was every bit as good as Elvis Presley.

 

 

 

Chuck Berry vs. John Mellencamp

Chuck Berry is a top 5 guitar player of all time and has influenced pretty much anyone who has picked up a guitar.  John Mellencamp is the guy who made me love music when I was a kid and was the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd concerts I ever attended.  All 3 with my parents.

Here is Chuck doing a pretty mean version of “Memphis, Tennessee” from 1972.

 

Here is a great acoustic version of “Minutes to Memories”, one of the most underrated songs off of the “Scarecrow” album.

 

 

 

The Beatles vs. Johnny Cash

This is the nastiest battle of them all.  Not much more you can say about these 2.  You know them and love them both but you can only pick one.

One of my favorites from the early part of the Beatles run.

 

One of a million of his classic songs.
