Good call

....and Boston. Other than that, a great list, and interesting pairings. Good god, that British Invasion bracket is stacked! I also really like the odd assembly in The Fuck if I know What to Call it Bracket.

You could definitely take Violent Femmes out for AIC or Supertramp.

I would dump Bob Marley for Boston. Boston fits in nicely w/Foreigner and Journey in that bracket. Marley's solid, but more reggae than rock.

No doubt.  Any one of the top four seeds in the British Invasion could/should win this whole thing, IMO.

Boston v U2 is an interesting 1-8 matchup. I could see an upset here. U2 has a better body of work, but no single album that touches Boston's self titled deubt song for song.

LOL!! When I first started posting about this tourney in the mod forum, my four number one seeds were

The Beatles
Rolling Stones
Led Zeppelin
The Who.

I love the VF but I'll accept either Alice In Chains or Supertramp as a replacement.

If you're going to replace the VF in the "Why Can't I Get..." bracket (which seems to be mostly punk or punkish bands), I think the most logical replacement is Blondie.  Supertramp would stand out like a sore thumb in that bracket, and AIC doesn't really fit either. 

I'd also be okay with replacing The Replacements with Blondie, but that's just my opinion.

If this was the Baseball HOF, both Alice In Chains and Supertramp would be in the very good, but not quite good enough category. Everything else looks good.

Blondie is alot more well known then The Replacements with alot more Hits. Also, isn't Blondie in the Rock-N-Roll HOF?

...and they invented rap, so that's gotta count for something!;)

I agree. I'd vote Blondie over both the Replacements and Femmes and they do fit the bracket theme well.  I still think AIC deserves a spot in, even though they don't fot the bracket as well.

What about Chilli Peppers or Jane's Addiction?  I personally take AIC over either of them, but they are worth considering, I think.

Great call about RCHC and Jane's...I can't believe I didn't think of them.  I wouldn't be averse to putting them in the "You never know..." bracket at the expense of Yes and Genesis.
