Neither of the versions of Come Together are showing viewable to me. As the other contestant it’s in my best that voters listen to both since Johnny B Goode kicks serious ass.

Hmm, I just doubled-checked and they're the same links I've been using for the previous rounds. YouTube is blocked at work, so everything always comes up as not viewable for me.

I'll try and load them up tonight when I get home from work. Likewise, if a mod wants to find the right address and edit my original post, that's fine too.

EDIT: They should be fixed now.

I taste Grunge. I’m pretty sure if you voted Soundgarden you didn’t actually listen to the songs.

Oh cmon. I know we’ve got a few Chris Cornell fanboys on here but Soundgarden belongs in the extremely overrated bands Top 10.

Listen to the songs.

I would call it exposing the musical truth. Grunge, it was awesome for like 4 years.
