    Waiting on clarification of a vote from a couple of people, so probably won't be able to do the results tonight, sorry for the delay. The rest of the results are tallied up though.

    Ok, I was waiting on @Tim-Time 1888 changing his vote for match one as he mistakenly put it as a draw, but either way his vote won't affect the result of the tie, so I'm going to do the results now.

    Match one:

    Alesso (V for Vendetta) 5-8 Metallica (Drakhan)

    This is the match that Tim had as a draw, and as you can see, him changing his vote won't change the result.

    My vote went to Metallica, one of the greatest songs ever written, imo. The guitar playing in it is fantastic, along with the unusual time signature. I actually played this for one of my school music exams. :)

    @V For Vendetta @Drakhan

    Match two:

    The Prodigy (Big els) 6-8 Red Hot Chili Peppers (Minty)

    Cheers, was slightly surprised at that when I saw I was up against that song. RHCP are the band that I've seen live the most, and they've been incredible each time. Their live jamming is unsurpassed by any other band I've seen live. It's just a shame that John Frusciante left the band, he was a huge part of their sound.

    Match three:

    Anathema (Officer Doofy) 8-6 The Bee Gees (Spring Time)

    My vote went to Anathema. Hadn't heard this song before and it's much more to my taste, I love the layered build up to the anthemic crescendo.

    Match four:

    Blur (Borobob) 8-6 Metallica (Vertie)

    My vote went to Metallica, even though I like both songs. Thought it was a fantastic live version of Enter Sandman, a band I've yet to see live but would love to.

    Match five:

    Bob Dylan (Idioteque) 10-4 Bassment Jaxx (Keano)

    I voted for Bassment Jaxx here, but Bob Dylan is someone I'm surprised we've not seen more of in these competitions. When I first got my own flat in Glasgow, I bought a disc set of Bob Dylan songs in order to get into his music, and it ended up becoming the regular soundtrack to me cooking my dinner. :)

    Match six:

    Rush (obafgkmlt) 5-9 Queen (Tim Time)

    I voted for Rush, but I'm a fan of Queen too, though that's not one of my favourite tracks by them.

    Match seven:

    U2 (Marie) 7-7 Neil Young (Deebo)

    Our first draw! I voted for Neil Young, here. Never been able to appreciate U2. I think it's Bono's voice, even though I appreciate The Edge's guitar playing and his use of reverb.

    Match eight:

    Ian Brown 4-10 Mrs.Minty

    Easy choice for me, not into Ian Brown's voice at all.

    I'm about to post the league table. But the next fixture will be a free for all, as I'm going to alternate between having a theme and not having a theme. So the next song you submit is completely up to you.

    It was good to see a bit more of a diverse selection in the first round of fixtures, let's hope that continues. :)

    Submit your songs when you're ready.

    League table after Fixture 1. I'm not bothering with Goal Difference because I'm not using that at the end, to separate teams, so teams are in alphabetical order for now.
