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 first eliminations are in the books in the 2010 FIFA World Cup, as France, South Africa, Greece and Nigeria have ended their runs. That means that South Korea, Argentina, Uruguay and Mexico are all headed to the knockout round, with plenty more soccer action to go. But everybody is still alive in the World Cup of Rock, including both of the teams from Group B in today's final match-up.
South Korea vs. South Africa
South Korea has been tearing up their opponents thanks to the power of Rain and his incredible online fan base. Though South Africa has a diverse attack, they are currently falling short to England in another match and could really use the boost. But can the Dave Matthews-lead squad overcome the awesome power of the South Koreans? Only you can decide!
