SPUT ROYALE: Round 1 Group C

Hello welcome to this OFFICIAL TOURNAMENT of Sputnik's most popular artists, back for its third year and here to make your lives misery once more. The committee (anat, dedex, JesperL, myself, Pangea, Pheromone and porc if he shows up to meetings) have sorted through your nominations, picked out the most (and least) popular entries, and randomly generated them into 4 groups of twenty matchups that you can VOTE on according to who you like best. Please vote! Here is how to vote: submit a full ballot of ALL twenty match-ups. Blanks are acceptable. The winners will go through to the next round, the losers will be forgotten forever (any tie-breakers will be announced separately). Place your BETS!
