Can The 1975 Stop Tokio Hotel From Taking The East?
MTV’s fifth-annual Musical March Madness tipped off on Monday (March 17), with 64 bands beginning a mythic quest for total tournament supremacy … and one very toned trophy.
Of course, this year’s #MMM is already proving to be an unpredictable affair; after all, we let fans pick all the bands in the field of 64, which has infused the tournament with some much-needed new blood (and, of course, Tokio Hotel, who brought a dog to this year’s bracket.)
We’ve already taken a look at the bands battling it out in the Midwest and West, and today, we’re turning our attention to the East, home of plenty of indie rock acts, blog bands and, yes, Tokio Hotel, who, if history is any indicator, are probably going to win it all. But as a matter of mere formality, let’s dive deeper into all the matchups in the East!
Tokio Hotel (currently eviscerating #6 Korn) in round two, and likely lose by double digits. Can anyone stop the Germans from their march to the title? Probably not; and we’d like to apologize in advance for that fact.
MTV’s Musical March Madness Moves To Round Two
Round two of MTV’s Musical March Madness tips off Monday (March 24), and after one week, the 2014 tournament is already proving to be one for the ages. We started with 64 bands, and now the field has been whittled down to 32 Voting in all second-round matchups is now underway, and polls will remain open until Monday, March 31 at noon ET.
#14 Bayside upset #3 Arcade Fire, and now have the honor of getting obliterated by Tokio Hotel in the second round, as the unstoppable German band rolled over #6 Korn by historic margins, and certainly seem to be the team to beat in this year’s tournament.

Tokio Hotel Want To Be Top Dogs Once Again
They’re out to take back the #MMM title in 2014,
with some help from their pal Pumba.
In the five-year history of MTV’s Musical March Madness tournament, no band has dominated quite like Tokio Hotel, the German rockers who have ridden the support of their fanatical “Aliens” to a trio of Final Four appearances and the 2012 championship.
It’s a pretty impressive résumé, especially considering TH hasn’t released an album since 2009, though, in a move that has come to live in MMM infamy, they aimed to change that last year, declaring they’d put out their long-in-the-works new album if they repeated as champs.
Of course, as any Alien will tell you, things didn’t really work out that way, as TH were bounced [cheated out of, more so ] from the tournament by eventual champion Ed Sheeran, in a tightly-contested battle that may very well go down as the greatest matchup in MMM history.
And don’t think Tokio Hotel haven’t spent the past year stewing over that defeat … because in a brand-new MMM video sent exclusively to MTV News, they let it be known that they plan on winning it all once again. And this time, they’re not just relying on their fans to carry them to victory; no, they’ve got Power Ranger Power, too. Oh, and one very fierce puppy named Pumba.
“We want to win again … and Pumba the Ranger wants to win too. If we don’t he’s going to be really upset and he’s probably going to bite you all,” frontman Bill Kaulitz said. “This year’s going to be so exciting for us, we’re releasing our new album, and we want to win this award too, because it will make the year even better.”
Of course, with Sheeran retiring from the 2014 tournament, Tokio Hotel‘s path to the championship appears to be an easy one (though we wouldn’t count Fall Out Boy or Imagine Dragons just yet). In fact, TH‘s toughest challenge might just be qualifying for the tournament.
But that’s where you come in.
Because this year, for the first time, we’re letting fans pick all the bands for MMM 2014: You can tweet your picks @MTVNews using the hashtag #MMM. We’ll be watching all week, and then, on Monday, March 17, we’ll unveil the full bracket of 64 bands at MMM.mtv.com.
