Rawk the Puck! Western Quarterfinals


As a great band once said, TONIGHT I’M GONNA ROCK YOU TONIGHT! It’s time to drop the puck on the Stanley Cup Playoffs, and that means it’s time to Rawk the Puck. Here are the Western Conference Quarterfinal matchups. I’ve linked a YouTube clip to each song in case you need to refresh your memory. Vote today, vote early, vote often; we’ll tabulate your votes and the votes of our panel and present the winners on Monday. By the way, to get everyone in the mood (and to force my musical taste on people), I’ve added a FineTune widget to the right column. Press play and you’ll get a good taste of indie rock, synth pop, new wave, punk, and britpop.

Tomorrow, we’ll get the Eastern Conference matchups.

    Shoot– The Cult are beating Kiss (as of now). I wouldn’t have figured that one.

    I wanted to vote for Nashville Pussy because I like the Preds (and because of their name), but dude, you put them against Dead Kennedys. I know you’re a Sharks fan, Mike, but you really stacked the deck on that one.

    Also, I know you said something about loose word play, but Sunburn for the Stars? That is really stretching it. I still voted for it, but I would have rather seen Hum, Stars though.
