Of the two embarrassing horrifying weird choices remaining, I think Radio Free Europe should win.

These songs aren't anywhere near the top of my list, but I've gotta stick with voting against Driver 8.

Lulz. For the ultimate REM survivor song I have to pick between Radio Free Europe and Driver 8?

To be fair, these tournaments only really determine the least objectionable song in a band's catalog. And I think this is a fair representation in that sense.

Also, they both fucking rule.

GO DRIVER 8!

Driver 8, of course.

I'm glad with this result (if Radio wins), cause for a long time Radio Free Europe was my favourite R.E.M. song, but I must say that the rest of the results are horrifying to me.

Very true.

Actually, I'm pretty sure that several of Stipe's stated favorite songs through the years didn't even make the finals. "Get Up" comes to mind.

As much as I love Driver 8, I think I've gotta go with RFE.

Bizarre final two, but somewhat understandable given the band is REM. So much diverse material to choose from. Least objectionable indeed, a bit like Radiohead survivor.

Driver 8, so I'm hoping Radio Free Europe wins, and it would be good to see a MurMur song win!

Least objectionable. We should start calling these games that instead of Survivor.

Driver 8 losing? Radio Free Europe wouldn't even make my top 20. This final should of been between Driver 8 and Find the River

There is no way in hell Driver 8 should win this.

RFE shouldn't either, but at least I'd respect that choice more.

I hope this ends with a tie so we can consider both songs eliminated.
