Owl City vs. TGA. That's ridiculous. In good fun, but ridiculous.

I don't really know who The Gaslight Anthem is, but the one thing I do know is that Owl City needs to be placed in jail for robbing The Postal Service.

Makes me wonder how much of the votes is gaslight love and how much is Owl City hate. Still nice to see them get some respect, even if the whole thing is a complete farce. (Nickelback is a 1 seed?)

Yeah, any bracket that pits TGA vs Owl City is insane. I happen to like both, but for completely different reasons. Apples and Oranges really.
And I agree, Nickelback? We've had the debate before, and I'm no Nickelback hater, but they don't hold a candle to most on this list.

It's been pretty awesome watching how big gaslight has gotten since The 59' Sound was released, but am I the only one who is upset that they're being listed on this mtv gimmick? (although I admit it's a cool idea). Maybe that's my punk roots coming out but something about it just irks me.

ok, I know it is technically cheating, but I found away of creating a macro to do it for you automatically.

First off this only works with Firefox
Go to https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/3863
Download iMacros and install
Open the MTv Page
http://newsroom.mtv.com/2010/03/18/musical-march-madness-u2-grizzly-bear-owl-city-gaslight-anthem/
Hit your new iMacros icon (it should be near the address bar)
hit record
click on the button for TGA
click on "Return to poll"
now click on Stop
click Play Loop, set it to for 100 (MTV only let me vote 100 times and then said I need to wait a minute before I could vote again)


Update 1:by the way, after my 100 votes, TGA is now up by 2%
Update 2:since I can't vote anymore for TGA, I am trying to set up the next round, I am voting for Grizzly Bear. U2 is such a popular band I can't see them losing in the first 3 rounds! What started as 37-63 is now 49-51 (U2 still in the lead... argh)
Update 3:I can vote again! I couldn't vote for an hour and a half. Starting at 53-47 (TGA in the lead)

Why is it cheating? You can vote how many times you want so things like these are bound to happen. If people shouldn't do it then they shouldn't allow the same person to vote twice.

Just some info, so folks understand why The Gaslight Anthem are matched up against Owl City. Basically, brackets are made by taking teams (remember, this is from basketball) and ranking them 1-16, by score. Obviously bands don't have scores, but they must have found some criteria. The higher ranked teams play the lower ranked ones, so 1 plays 16, 2 plays 15, etc. So, really, it's random. Somebody didn't just sit down and say "Gee..." and decided TGA are inherently comparable to Owl City. They've also got The Hold Steady up against Nickleback, so... haha.

ok, poll cheating sure isn't in the TGA spirit, but ... this poll is called 'MTV's Musical March Madness'

and by the way, the story behind it is at www.mtv.com/news/articles/1634081/20100316/story.jhtml
