It's MTV's World Cup of Rock! The World Cup is the greatest sporting event on the planet, a super-sized stage where legends are born with every strike of the ball, where infamy is just a moment away and where the dreams of millions live or die by the minute. That's why, in the spirit of the 2010 MTV Musical March Madness competition, we've created "The World Cup (Of Rock)," a FIFA-style tournament that takes 16 of the biggest nations — rock-wise (sorry Algeria) — and pits them against one another to determine just which is the most rockingly awesome. Heavyweights like the U.S.A., England, France and Germany are all here, but so are a handful of surprisingly strong sleeper countries. As the Cup progresses, we'll be unveiling the match-ups, and it's up to you to vote your favorites through. In the end, only one nation will be left standing: the world champion of rock.
The 2010 FIFA World Cup is starting to wrap up its first round today. Group A will begin its final march to the finish today, with Mexico and Uruguay going toe-to-toe and France and South Africa both looking for a way into the next round. The MTV World Cup of Rock is similarly intense, with a key match-up kicking off today's action.
Mexico vs. Uruguay
These two teams are playing for dominance in Group A of the 2010 FIFA World Cup, but which of them will stand tall in the World Cup of Rock's Group A? Will the collective power of Carlos Santana and the strong Mexican rock contingent be enough to overpower Uruguay's killer striker Gabe Saporta? It's a classic contest between a dominant team and a singular powerhouse. Who will win? Only you can decide!
