The common opinion on this forum means less than zero to me. But we'll leave that there.

As for Fanning, I rang him up, and his vitriol literally leaked down the line like whisky from a broken barrel. It wasn't pretty.

Common opinion generally means nothing to me, however, common interference opinion regarding a song makes me gravitate toward whatever the opposite opinion is. I do already like so cruel, but knowing most of this place doesn't like it makes me actually want to listen to it.

Shame this nonetheless probably doesn't translate to you agreeing with me that Achtung Baby is considerably overrated around here.

Speaking of less-loved 90s U2 songs, how awesome is Miama?

It did have some redeeming features live.

Other notable acts surprisingly missing: Pavement, Hot Chip (Over & Over?!!), Chemical Brothers, Interpol, Beck, The Hives.

That is odd that Beck missed the cut. Come to think of it, you'd really expect to see something like Loser in there (I don't think it's one of the best 100 songs post 1993, but I suspect I can easily imagine a lot of people who would).

Loser isn't even close to being his best song, but that is a bit surprising, considering the audience.

I think the fact there were three voters for Debra in this thread got me excited.
