While listeners sent us their 2022 ‘best of’ new music picks, we were busy building a sports network. That’s right, the Suburbs Pod Sports Network is staging a 64-band tournament to determine the greatest American band.

Over the next two months, listeners can visit our Twitter and Facebook pages to vote in head-to-head matchups. It’s super competitive and super fun! You can view the bracket, which will update often, here.

Today, we kick-off the bracket with Selection Monday… featuring Jim and Patrick plus guest analysts Bud Verge, Mark Neese, Jeff Perry and Jason Goebel.

For your viewing pleasure…
