Better Than Everything
Your Band Name

This is formed from your band name (not including "the"), all lower case, with no spaces, an underscore, and an acronym of the title (or in the case of one word titles, the title), followed, of course, by a period and the file extension "mp3". MP3's only! We do not post .m4a or other file types. More info in the faq.

You wouldn't think we would need to say this, but use the actual title as shown and your actual band name, kapeesh?

Here's how it works. Click the names to listen, then check the boxes next to your favorites to vote for as many as you like, but at least two. Check all the good ones, don't check any of the bad ones, then press the vote! button to register all of your votes at once. One round of voting per fight per customer, please.

COVID-19 Global Pandemic
Please stay safe and stay healthy and follow all your local/regional/national government guidelines and mandates. We'll be trying to offer shorter, more frequent fights for folks who want to spend more time making music. Also check the boards as the community has already started organizing side fights. For now we're going to hope Song Fight Live 2020 will still happen but we'll keep monitoring the situation and announce if there are any developments. Song love!

Rest In Peace, Brother Machine
In some very sad news, Seth Gibbs, aka Brother Machine, super talented Song Fighter of "old times" 2003-2004 passed away recently. He was a great songwriter and musician who participated online as well as in real life at several live events including Song Fight! Live 2004 in Austin, TX. You can watch his set from that show on Glenn Case's YouTube channel and see Seth invite folks up to accompany him spontaneously to great effect. We'll be covering some of his songs in a tribute, check the boards for more details.
