Oh my god no. That was a 0.5 star song if I've ever heard one - and today I've already fucking listened to Eminem's "Ass Like That", Eamon's "Fuck It", and Billy Ray Cyrus's "Achy Breaky Heart" as part of an RYM project to listen to the bottom 100 singles of all time. "Mercy" was no better than any of that shit. Couldn't wait for it to stop grating on my ears. Now Seth Sentry, "My Scene", this is an obvious improvement. More interesting - and more coherent - lyrics, that's for fucking sure.

Apart from "Gasoline", none of my votes made the top 200. Damn. I was hoping "Obedear" would show up at least.

Imagine a lot of people will be surprised Cloud Nothings still didn't show up today. Some surprises in the 200-101 list but in general it's about what I expected, and definitely better than the 100. Some bands will be a bit bummed their vote got split by two songs that both showed up in 200-101, rather than having the vote focused on one song that would've definitely cracked the Hottest 100; Haim in particular, with #101 and #106. Combine the votes for those two and I imagine they'd be very high in the 100.

So, Cloud Nothings weren't in the top 200? Could have sworn I heard Wasted Days but then again that might have been... yes, it was yesterday morning. I'm losing my mind.

I'm not going to say it's a great song, but I still love it. The beat alone makes it better than Ass Like That and Fuck It, and Achy Breaky Heart is better left not spoken about.

I will admit though that My Scene is a good tune though. One of the better Aussie hip-hop tunes out there. Along with this one, which was in the Hottest 100

If Aussie dad-rockers The Reubens start spelling their name the way I do, I will, not retract, but look more kindly upon, my outrageous slurs.

'My Scene' is an ok, I say ok, track.

Sorry, but it's been a while since I've had such an immediate, visceral negative reaction to a song. It just sounds like some kids doing stupid voices.

Oh I totally get why you hate it. Very understandable. I didn't like it much first time I heard it either.

Grinspoon and airbourne... Two bands I haven't thought about anytime recently, and was not really looking to be reminded.

I don't think Grinspoon are all that bad to be honest. A couple of decent songs.

I couldn't even tell you what grinspoon I've heard, i don't remember at all. I just remember the name as something really boring.

Grinspoon had a couple of okay songs. Not worth anyone's time.

Airbourne deserve to be bashed to the very pits of existence, however.

Yeah, the more Airbourne slagging, the better.
