CSS Community Features: Cageside Seats Favorite Song of the 1990s Nomination Thread

It's time to change things up a bit.

If you are a frequent visitor to the Daily Open Thread, you may have noticed that I was running a little thing called the "Greatest Video Game Tournament." It was a tournament designed to see what you Cagesiders thought the greatest video game of all-time was, and you voted for The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past as the winner of an admittedly controversial tournament.

Now that that one is over, it's time to move on to the next set of tournaments: The Cageside Seats Favorite Song Tournaments. Over the next year or so, we will hold five 68 entry tournaments to determine your favorite song of a particular decade. The order of these tournaments (decided by YOU) is this: 1990s. 1980s, 2000s, 1960s, and 1970s.

Over the next two days, you will have the chance to nominate the entrants to this first tournament. Here are some things to remember:

  • Although you may nominate as many songs as you would like, try to be sensible.
  • You may also nominate as many tracks from a particular artist as you want. BE WARNED: I will be limiting the number of tracks from a particular artist (The Mario Rule)
  • ANY genre of music is acceptable.
  • The songs MUST have been made between 1/1/90 and 12/31/1999.
  • ONLY nominate songs that you personally enjoy; don't consider influential factors or anything like that.

The way that seeding and matchups will be determined is by the number of recs that a nomination receives. Obviously, the more recs a nomination gets, the better seeding it will receive (you've all seen this before in the official CSS tournaments).

I will post the first nomination and it will be in the template that you will need to follow, or else your nomination won't be considered (PLEASE INCLUDE A LINK TO THE SONG). An explanation of your nomination is highly recommended, but not required.


After the closure of nominations, I will make the bracket and post both the bracket AND the first matchup in the Daily Open Thread, where ALL of the matchups will take place.

I know that this is a lot to read for a simple nomination thread, but I'm trying to make it as simple as possible.

Have fun!
