Best Makeout Song

  • Best Makeout Song
  • Workout Songs
  • Making Love
  • Best 80s Song
  • High School Dance Song
  • One Hit Wonders
  • Boy Bands
  • Singing in the Shower
  • Cruising Songs
  • Stripper Anthems
  • East vs West Coast
  • Movie Soundtracks

3 Get Ready For Battle

You need to know how to play in order to win over the crowd, one beat and fist pump at a time.

  • 8-16 DJs battle in a bracket-style format
  • Each round features a different battle category
  • 2 songs are played per round (have backups in case your song gets played)
  • DJs battle back and forth, alternating tracks for a total of two songs each
  • Songs play for 30 seconds, so cue it up to the good part
  • Winners are judged by crowd response, as gauged by the MC
