Welcome, once again, to the annual / biannual / semiannual Non-VGM Music Tourney!

For those who haven't participated in the previous Music Tourneys, we will be selecting our favorite tracks and voting which one is the best, bracket-style. Why is it not VGM this time? Because I don't listen to VGM anymore. You can send your grievances here.

Nomination Rules:
-Only tracks not made specifically for a video game can be nominated.
-Up to three tracks can be nominated by one person.
-Only three tracks from the same artist can be nominated (feature credits don't count to this total). EDIT: You can only nominate one track per artist.
-Remixes are allowed, but still have to follow artist rules.
-Each nomination must have a valid video link. (This is a good site for checking if your video is blacklisted in any countries.)
-Please format nominations as [Artist] - [Song]

Nominations will be due by Sunday, October 4th at 10:00 PM EST.


So I don't blindside anybody, voting will be much different at the beginning of the tourney this time around. To speed up the process a bit, for the first round of voting you will vote the best two of eight songs, rather than the usual bracket voting. So, instead of:

Track A vs Track B
Track C vs Track D
Track E vs Track F
Track G vs Track H

...all eight tracks would be voted against each other, and the best two would move onto a normal bracket. This will also handle the issue of uneven track counts that normally screw up the brackets.

Since this is such a big change, please let me know in comments (and the poll) whether or not you approve of the changes; if people just want to do it the old way, then that's fine with me.

Now, with that out of the way.......let the nominations begin!


Time Zone - World Destruction
DJ Shadow - The Number Song
NBA Stupid A$s - I Wish the Money Changed Me
(will probably update this at some point) i hope i win
uh deppy you forgot to add the most important rule: if you're listening to songs on laptop speakers or dollar store headphones and your reasons for voting involve some variation of "it was too loud/distorted" you're banned from voting

mewithoutYou - Bear's Vision of St. Agnes
Toots & The Maytals - Funky Kingston
Roy Orbison - I Drove All Night
welp, think I'll just not bother trying to submit music that caters to any specific groups of people and just post whatever tf I want this time; let's see how this will do ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

14 Bis - Linda Juventude

Aphex Twin - Vordhosbn

Daft Punk - Giorgio by Moroder

(might change shit later. maybe.)
Layout by Mathos
Dave Wave - Everybody Wants To Be A Cat (Electro Swing Remix)

I, Lumio Giovanna, defender of VGM, will take on the duty of hosting VGM Tourney... Someday™.
early next year prolly
Amon Tobin - Nova
The Mars Volta - Cicatriz ESP
Xotla Music - Winnow

New vote seems ok, last time I felt as though it was taking too long to get to the end of the tourney, and small inattentions made me miss one or two rounds.

I'm gonna change these 10 times

people always complained about me choosing really long songs in past tourneys, so this time I've decided to keep it brief:
Asterisk* - Adding Milk To DNA
Contrastic - Chopin's Ulcerous Cholic
Naked City - Speedball
