My goodness, this has been a lot of drama! First, Tokio Hotel fans screamed FOUL! CHEATING! But, like the Little Boy who Cried Wolf, this has happened before. In fact, it happens a lot.
But this time, well…. goodness me!
Tokio Hotel won the first round after MTV investigated and yes, there were bot cheaters. So, votes were fixed and we prevailed.
Not nearly as brutal here, as #1 Mumford & Sons got waxed by #16 F—ed Up, while #2 Coldplay used a late rally to edge out #15 Arctic Monkeys, third-seeded Florence and the Machine survived #14 Refused and #4 Muse managed to move on after pasting #13 Gym Class Heroes. In a hotly debated (and borderline illegal) showdown, #5 Arcade Fire were bested by #12 Tokio Hotel (there were 2.1 million votes cast in this one alone) and #6 Fun. fell to the mighty fanbase of #11 Semi Precious Weapons. Not surprisingly, #7 the Shins got smoked by #10 Coheed and Cambria, and #8 Radiohead withstood a late charge from #9 Bruce Springsteen to move on. So after all that carnage, here’s a look at our second-round matchups:
#8 Radiohead vs. #16 F—ed Up
#4 Muse vs. #12 Tokio Hotel
#3 Florence and the Machine vs. #11 Semi Precious Weapons
#2 Coldplay vs. #10 Coheed and Cambria
Now, we go into round 2 against Muse. ARE YOU READY FOR SOME FOOTBALL? (or some other war cry)
If you are like me and you want to vote ahead, you might consider voting for F***ed up, so that is who we meet in the next round.
Not that it matters, pretty sure many people are trying to bring us down.
We shall show them.
