This was a special show playing a band from each medaling nation from least to most Olympic medals, starting at 29th place. Using this fancy tool from NY Times I set the value of a gold medal to 2x that of a silver medal, which was 2x that of a Bronze. I had actually started working on this on Saturday night and found a bunch of cool surf bands from nations lesser known for surf, but by Monday morning the medal count had shifted and they didn't make the cut. So I actually had songs ready for over 40 nations!
I tried to choose bands there were representative of their nations, usually either by popularity or by recency.
Apologies for some technical issues on this one.
