Band Madness - Sweet 16

Band Madness is still going on here. They're down to the Sweet 16. I was a little bummed in the last round when R.E.M. beat out Pearl Jam, but now R.E.M. is facing the Beatles, so Eddie Vedder & Co. wouldn't have made it any further anyway. The top 16 are your usual suspects, no big surprises there, but it still should be interesting. Look at Depeche Mode, with the easy crushing of LL Cool J in round 1. They have gone to upset not 1, not 2, but 3 big hitters, knocking out Queen, The Doors, and Led Zeppelin in successive rounds. As of this moment they have a 2 vote lead over Oasis and could go on to the Elite Eight. I'm starting to remember why I hated them in high school!
