Baconsale Episode 147: Tournament of 80s New Wave Bands

We Just Can’t Get Enough of these March-Madness-style music brackets, so Baconsale is going to Talk Talk and use our Weird Science to determine which 1980s new wave band is the best. Don’t Get Me Wrong, you may say it’s a Cruel Summer when your favorite bands are eliminated, but don’t Panic, it’s a Good Thing. As for declaring an ultimate winner, we Save It For Later because we only make it through the first round in this episode. But which artists will still be Alive and Kicking at the end?

No More Words! Everybody Have Fun Tonight and press play!
