B-Sides Tournament Final: The Smiths vs New Order

This is the final game in the Best of the B-sides tournament. There were a few surprises on the way here. Depeche Mode’s Sea Of Sin was a favorite to make the Final Four. Additionally, The Cure had the most songs represented in the tournament yet none of them made the final. The tournament is also not without controversy. How Soon Is Now is generally considered to be an album track. However, before it appeared on Hatful Of Hollow and Meat Is Murder, it was a B-side to the single William It Was Really Nothing.
