Opening Round Match Up featuring #6 seed The Doors vs. #59 seed Styx. Voting ends in 1 day.
Founded in 1965 in Los Angeles, California, after a meeting between UCLA film school students Jim Morrison and Ray Manzarek, "The Doors" became one of the premier acts of the late 1960s. The band took their name from the title of a book by Aldous Huxley, The Doors of Perception, which was in turn borrowed from a line of poetry by the 18th century artist and poet William Blake: "If the doors of perception were cleansed, every thing would appear to man as it is: infinite." Hit songs included "The End", "Light My Fire", "Hello I Love You", and "Break On Through (To The Other Side).
Styx is the first musical act to ever have four consecutive triple platinum albums. The group originally formed in the Chicago, Illinois, area in 1961 as "The Tradewinds". This earliest line-up of the group included brothers Chuck and John Panozzo on guitar and drums, respectively; and vocalist, pianist, keyboardist, and accordion player Dennis DeYoung. Changing their name briefly to "TW4", Chuck switched to bass guitar and the band added guitarists/vocalists James "J.Y." Young and John Curulewski. Hit singles from Styx include "Lady," "Lorelei," "Come Sail Away," "Fooling Yourself (The Angry Young Man)," "Babe," "The Best of Times," "Too Much Time on My Hands," "Mr. Roboto," "Don't Let It End" and "Show Me the Way."
