With a result that shocked absolutely no one, Renegade won by 92% in our first song-to-scene poll. This will be one of the 3 to beat. While the others didn't quite reach that margin, they were decisive victories too. Proceeding to the second round are Renegade, Man in the Wilderness (54%), All Out of Love (61%), and Silent Lucidity (64%). The polls today should have similar results. Things won't start getting hard for most until the next round.
Below are links to the episodes in this contest (Contest Basics link) and a printable bracket if you want to see what your favorites will be facing. Also there are video clips of the scenes in today's polls. I could not find one for Chaos Surrounds You and my first attempt at video capture came out stuttery. If you have a video clip of it or can make one, please let me know so I can add it. I also need clips for White Rabbit (Hunted), Back on the Road Again (Born Under a Bad Sign), We Gotta Get Out of This Place (A Little Slice of Kevin), and House of the Rising Sun (Roadkill). I have clips ready for the following but they also include other scenes so if you have the music part just by itself I'd love to use those instead. Clips needed: Ode to Joy (Hunteri Heroici), All Right Now (Skin), Burnin' for You (Hell House), and Feel Alright (Citizen Fang).
Also, for a little bit of fun before hiatus ends, we are going to take nominations for the song that has not been played on Supernatural yet but that you think would fit well. Thanks to Dovile for bringing the subject up in the comments yesterday. The song I'm in Love with My Car by Queen is indeed perfect for SPN. My choice since Meg appeared in season 1 is You Give Love a Bad Name by Bon Jovi. Let's face it. Almost everyone gives love a bad name on this show. It might as well have been Ruby's theme song in seasons 3 and especially 4. So what would your choices be? You can nominate up to 5 songs. Please also mention what you nominated in the comments section and why. If you have a scene in which they would have be perfect add that in too. It could be fun to see what music SPN fans would have chosen in classic scenes. As always, comments are joy and pass the hiatus time quicker. Happy voting!

The song-to-scene contest is not a popularity contest per se. It is about which song best fits which scene in tone and lyrics. Unlike a favorite song or favorite scene contest, you could very well end up voting for a song and/or scene you don't like simply because it matches the best. Ideally we are looking for a scene in which no other song could come even close to being as perfect. We are looking for a song that could not be played in many different scenes in the series. That one combination where the song and scene feel like they were completely in sync. So think on your vast music knowledge and if you can think of several songs that would work in the scene, toss that choice out. If you can think of several places where the song would work just as well or better in the series, toss that choice out too. This contest only works if we let our episode and music prejudices go for 3 weeks.
Also previouslies, outtakes, gag reels, promos, etc. are NOT scenes and therefore do NOT count. That cuts out Carry On Wayward Son completely, which has only been in the previouslies, the outtake of Jensen dancing to Eye of the Tiger (only the 30 seconds that were actually in the episode count), and the first part of Foreplay/Long Time, which started as a previously and segued into about 45 seconds of the actual episode.
