Battle 114 September 2019 Bob Dylan's Maggie Farm. Take the folk rock somewhere different with Rage Against the machine against Solomon Burke. Rage was a bit too caffeinated and we had a shut out.

Battle 121 last Battle of 2019. I went with The Roadrunner theme since my last battle was a tune called Coyote. Bo Didley, The Rolling Stones, and The Pretty Things. 3, 2, 1 The Stones win, Diddley was last.
Battle 122 Happy 2020 "Smoke on the Water" was finally used. I was digging classical guitarist Nadja Kossinskaja, she did this a crossover and you did not like it. I get that it wasn't well received elsewhere. However as a terrible guitarist it is good to see someone good fail. Dread Zeppelin and Metallica tied.
Battle 123 We went overtime with "Smoke on the Water" this time an All Star Group versus Mr Big. The All Stars won 5 to 3.
