Our newest bracket challenge features a battle between songs that mention Michigan, a Michigan city, or a Michigan place -- good luck choosing between them!
The Michigan Songs Bracket is a 32-song bracket featuring some of the most iconic mentions of Michigan, Detroit, along with famous places and cities, including songs from KISS, Journey, Motown, David Bowie, Gordon Lightfoot, Trick Trick, Simon & Garfunkel and more. Artists get only one song or project.
Our top seeds are: Detroit Rock City (KISS) and Dancing In The Street (Martha Reeves & The Vandellas). We’ll have five rounds, all about two days long, with a bracket winner announced on June 28.
We’re into the second round now -- no major upsets in the first round, the top seeds took care of business pretty easily. Sammy Davis Jr.’s “Hello Detroit” did knock out MC5′s cover of “Motor City Is Burning.” Most other favorites remain in-tact.
Prizes: Just by voting, you’ll be entered to win a $100 gift card to Jax Car Wash (four in each round) and one grand prize of $500! Thanks to our sponsor, FanDuel Sportsbook -- Make your first bet risk free up to $1,000.
