Ever since we lost Avicii, we’ve been listening to a lot of, not only his music, but also music from many great musicians who we lost too soon. We actually made a “Musicians Lost Too Soon” bracket if you want to check that out.
One of the #1 seeds from that bracket is Kurt Cobain – lead singer of 90s grunge band Nirvana. Naturally this leads us to our Nirvana Bracket Challenge which we actually seeded differently than almost all our other music brackets.
Normally when we seed our music brackets we seed them based on the number of times the band has played their songs live. This works exceptionally well when the band has a large catalog and has also toured for many years. In the case of Nirvana, a band that didn’t tour much and then ultimately disbanded, we had to seed the bracket based on song sales on iTunes.
Along with Nirvana, we’ve also added a Foo Fighters bracket and an Alice In Chains bracket. “Everlong” is an overwhelming favorite in the Foo Fighters bracket, but could “Monkey Wrench” or “Best Of You” ultimately pull an upset? We like the #1 seeds in the Alice In Chains bracket as well with “Man in the Box” and “Would?” leading the charge. We also like the #3 seeds with “Nutshell” and “Angry Chair.”
We’ll be making a lot more music brackets over the coming weeks so keep an eye out and always remember to check the master page with the complete list of brackets.
