It's time for our 2021 Summer Music Showdown!

It will be a 64 track showdown. We're sticking with the same rules for the most part, but an additional rule has been added.

Rules:

1. Up to THREE nominations per person. Rank your picks on the off chance we have to cut any so your preferred one gets to stay for sure. I will let you know if we need additional songs and it will be on a first come first serve basis. You can have less than three if you prefer.

2. The song must be available on Youtube (potential leeway on this if you can provide something that is linkable, legal, free to access and won't go down during the course of the contest).

3. Please PM me your nomination with a link to the song

4. I reserve the right to reject a song if I think it is too universally adored. We want personal choices and the contest is as much about hearing new music as opposed to determining the best. A good guide is the rule of only songs with no wikipedia page. Possible exceptions to this due to wikipedia's oddities. I will also reject any songs that have previously been used in the showdown.

5. Please keep tracks limited to songs with view counts no bigger than single-digit millions on the most viewed video of the song. As long as the track complies with the other rules, I have no issue with tracks with higher view counts being submitted, but ten million and up increases the likelihood that others are familiar with the song. Keep a song's release date in mind--if the video just dropped last week and it has eight or nine million views, maybe forgo that one.

6. No songs from the top fifty of NHC's most recent top 100 albums list. This will help prevent anything too popular here at NHC from being part of the showdown.

7. Keep your nomination a secret, it makes it more fun at the end!


If you would like to sign up, please indicate in this thread. I will need your nominations by no later than about 6pm eastern time on July 8 (Thursday). Looking forward to hearing some new tunes!

We are officially CLOSED for submissions. [MENTION=88479]Salacious B. Crumb[/MENTION] did not get a pick in time. [MENTION=56353]deadname[/MENTION] is left with two picks. That said, we've had our best turn out in years, so we do actually have to delete one track. I put all of the names in the randomizer and [MENTION=87671]TheNewestMoron[/MENTION] has lost their third pick (I'm sorry, I wouldn't delete anyone's if this was an avoidable issue at this point). Everyone has three picks, with TheNewestMoron and deadname being the exceptions.

The showdown will begin shortly.
