The Round of 16 brought about some intriguing story lines, specifically about a potential Loggins clash in the Elite Eight, and whether it would be a clean sweep for the favorites from the previous round.

The closest match up was Cult of Personality by Living Colour (5) which edged out Bowling for Soup's 1985 (12) 54.1-45.9.
Here is a full list of the winners:
- Danger Zone - Kenny Loggins (7) 83.6%

- Footloose - Kenny Loggins (2) 76.7%
- Afternoon Delight - Anchorman Cast (13) 66.4%
- Cult of Personality - Living Colour (5) 54.1%
Here are the match ups for the Elite Eight:
- Kansas City (1) Vs. Afternoon Delight (13)
- Footloose (2) Vs. The Boys Are Back In Town (8)
- You're The Best Around (3) Vs. Danger Zone (7)
- Cult of Personality (5) Vs. Walk (6)
Due to the Anchorman upset, we may end up not getting our Duelin' Loggins match up at all until the Championship Round, and Danger Zone would have to defeat the titan that is Kansas City.
Good luck to all the participants.
