This March, we pit 64 Beatles covers against each other in what we call Moptop Madness.

Yesterday’s winners: Wilson Pickett, “Hey Jude” & Tenacious D, “‘Abbey Road’ Medley”

The fights continue – and we’re still in Round One! First, two indie favorites go head to head as Jonathan Coulton’s “I Will” battles The Feelies’ “Everybody’s Got Something to Hide Except Me and My Monkey.” Then, it’s old versus new as NYC vets Sonic Youth pit their “Within You Without You” against “Oh! Darling” by Scottish newcomers Broken Records.

Listen to each pairing below, then vote for your favorite. For added sway, try to convince others to vote your way in the comments. Voting closes in 24 hours.
