Invitation to Finalgear Music League

"This League is full" it says.
 
Ha! Now I can finally add the other Gwar songs to my discard pile. For some reason, that was my immediate first thought after I realized NPR Tiny Desk concerts weren't available and knew any official versions of AV Club's Undercover series had been scrubbed off the internet by our shared former garbage corporate overlord Univision. (Yes, that Univision owned both AV Club and Jalopnik for some reason. The Spanish-language channel. They sucked then and apparently still suck now.)

The only issue with Gwar is that the visuals are half the fun, goshdarnit. Also, their live album chopped up the band's little skits in between songs in a really weird way, so it took several listens of that Mt. Fuji album to find one that would make sense as a standalone track. (No offense to the current crew—the Scumdogs live version of "Sick of You" is pretty great—but I wanted Oderus.)

Anyway, here's some of the live performances that would've made the top of my short list if they were on Spotify. Some would've worked well for the covers round, too, but nope. DEEEEEENIED.

(Have I mentioned that Gwar is a national treasure? Gwar is a national treasure.)

The first song that came to mind for me was the live version of One More Light from Linkin Park at Rock Werchter, but the live version(s) on Spotify really didn't have that same feeling. It was one of Chesters last shows and performed/recorded just a couple of weeks before Chester committed suicide. You can really feel and hear the raw and pure emotions in this performance especially knowing now what would happen a couple of weeks later.

DanRom has knocked Jules off her throne, and once again there's been quite a shuffling of the leaderboard. It's now a three-way tie for third, listed alphabetically.
93Flareside has finally made it into positive points!!
Rick and Coco remain the cellar-dwellers for now.

**Andeh, Eizbaer, Kenny, Larswey and Leviathan joined during this week and could not participate until round 5 opened. Larswey later dropped out on realising he'd have to listen to an hour and a half of Country music this week. :ROFLMAO:

@Misrabelle love the lists, but i have to be an arse....

What is the alphabet used to list the 3-way tie? :hmm:
 
It’s correct in my file. But the number of players changed that much while I was making it that I didn’t upload the correct version.
 
Country round is a bit of a dud. Not too many creative picks, as if most people know only one country song/artist...

Nice, Spotify won’t let me login to music league anymore. „Something went wrong“, yeah thanks, super helpful.
Going through ML app works… great, one more app, ugh. And to listen to country. Ughhhh. Bad round to join into 🤣

This round was really hard for me.

Well, shit. 🤣
 
I had no problem listening to it the whole way through. More than once.

My friend's "1982" round in her league though....yeah, struggling to find a fuck to give about that steaming pile of crap.

Metal Daze! Great song!
 
You guys don’t know what good country is. That’s all I’m saying. 😁
