South Park Music Madness Kicks Off Fan Vote to Determine Top OG Song

If it hasn't been clear enough to you by now, it's safe to say that Trey Parker and Matt Stone have been embracing the show's musical library to properly celebrate Comedy Central's South Park as it rolls along with its 25th season. Along with the orchestral covering of famous songs leading into the show's return, the duo is teaming up with Primus and Ween for a special concert at the Red Rocks Park and Amphitheatre in Colorado this April (more on that below). But it doesn't stop there, with the long-running animated series kicking off "'South Park' Music Madness," a "March Madness"-like bracket competition where you can head on over to the show's Twitter account and vote every weekday to determine the best South Park original song of all time (for now). Here's a look at how the voting bracket is breaking down for "'South Park' Music Madness," and you can head on over to here to start voting and track updates to the bracket (with "Chocolate Salty Balls" vs "Make Love to You, Woman" kicking things off in a brutal first-offering):

Now here's a look at the official trailer for the South Park 25th Anniversary Concert, and to purchase tickets head on over here:
