It was the closet match up in the Temporary Rough Venom Battle of the Classic Bands Tournament. The Smiths would score 15 votes to Husker Du with 14 votes by the midnight deadline. Both bands took the lead several times during a busy day of back and forth commenting and several fans actually sat on the fence and either didn't vote or voted for both, rendering their free voice completely wasted. In the end, The Smiths started something they could finally finish, while Husker Du is stunned and trying to make sense of all the fuss.
