It’s MTV’s second annual Musical March Madness! MTV News took the 64 biggest names in rock, split them up into four regions, assigned them seeds and puts them up against one another in a single-elimination series of match-ups in a winner-take-all contest. We’re leaving it to you to decide an actual champ in this field of 64, so over the next few weeks, fan voting will determine who will emerge as this year’s champion. It’s all about the fans, and the artist with the most passionate fan base will score the awesome Musical March Madness trophy!
This Final Four promises to be the closest and most intense in the history of MTV’s Musical March Madness. Each of the four remaining bands could become the champion, but they’ll have to overcome killer odds to do so. Which two bands will be left standing when the championship match goes down on Monday, April 4 (the same day as the NCAA men’s basketball championship)? Only you, the fans, know for sure.
Voting for all Final Four match-ups will close on Sunday, April 3 at midnight. As always, you can follow all the voting here.

Your votes will decide it!
