2009 GF5 Tournament Round 3: The Beatles vs. Nirvana
Has there been a bigger matchup in this tournament, so far? I don’t think so! The Beatles reshaped the musical landscape in the 1960s, and Nirvana did that in the 1990s. Every band out there playing popular music today has been influenced by The Beatles in some way or another. I don’t think that’s debatable. And every band since 1992 or so has, in some way reacted to or reacted against what Nirvana did. This matchup, really, should be our final matchup in the music round. Only the accident of scheduling can be blamed for these two meeting one round early.
Vote now, Fivers! It seems that Fab Four are the obvious choice, but who knows? Anything can happen.
