Best Rock Band Tournament

Colin Cowherd of ESPN Radio put together a bracket-style tournament of the best rock bands.  At first I thought this would be fun, but as soon as I saw Lynyrd Skynyrd was a 10 seed, I realized others don’t share my same feelings of rock n roll.  Check out the bracket and see if you agree with the bands included and their seeding…

Top 5 Overseeds (Too High):

  • Police – 4 Seed
  • Rush – 5 Seed
  • Earth, Wind, Fire – 9 Seed (This is for rock bands, correct)
  • Phish – 10 Seed – (How are they the same as Grateful Dead?)
  • Blink 182 – 16 Seed (Why are they even in this)

Top 5 Underseeds (Too Low):

  • Soundgarden – 15 Seed
  • Lynyrd Skynyrd – 10 Seed
  • Grateful Dead – 10 Seed
  • Bon Jovi – 5 Seed
  • Aerosmith – 4 Seed

Bands that should’ve been included:

  • Springsteen
  • Bob Seger
  • Creedence Clearwater Revival
  • REM
  • Tom Petty

Powell’s Personal Final Four (from the bracket):

  • AC/DC (Seattle Region)
  • The Allman Brothers (Cleveland Region)
