Alright, guys. Kenneth's good and all, but it's time for it to go.

Fall On Me/Driver 8 for the win.

Looking at it now, I think Driver 8 is my least favorite here.

Fall On Me is far and away the best song remaining, and I think it would be a worthy winner of the whole thing. So I'll try to help save it.

Seriously.

According to the poll results as they stand right now, the two best REM songs are Kenneth and Radio Free Europe.

.... I think I'm going to cry.

I will openly weep if Driver 8 or Fall On Me gets the axe this round.

Do the right thing, Interference. I trust you.

Kenneth's the only song I know here! I knew I was in the minority in thinking it was good at best, but I didn't know it was this loved. R.E.M. are one band who I'll never be into I guess

For what it's worth, I just discovered this poll series. I would have been campaigning for "I Believe" and "Don't Go Back to Rockville" before anything that's left. It boggles my mind that "Kenneth" stuck around this long.

*insert long string of curse words here*

Fall On Me is gone? It is laughable to suggest that any of the 3 remaining are REM's best songs.

Driver 8 is great, but it's not even in my top 10 favorite REM songs.

Agreed. I can't believe it is still here.

The poll became laughable long back when B&C decided to oust songs like Losing My Religion and Man On The Moon before anything else.

"Losing My Religion" isn't that great of a song. It's "Man on the Moon" you should be bitching about, and I'll be right there with you.

"Leave" would still be here, if it were up to me.

Personally I like ..Religion but I guess I can kinda see why it may not be that preferred here (ZOMG! Grammy winnar! no wai!!!).

But songs like Man On The Moon, Nightswimming, Find The River, Great Beyond... none of them are here! They're all Top 10 material as far as I am concerned.

I also think Low Desert is Top 10 material but few would agree with me.

Fall On Me is definitely one of my favorite R.E.M. songs and Kenneth would be high on my list, but yeah, these have been weird results.

I have no idea why Driver 8 is here.

I'm not arguing that "Losing My Religion" isn't a good song, just that I don't see it in the upper-echelon of their discography. You could say that any group of huge fans of a particular band don't find their more popular tracks to be their finest, and vice versa.

these are the top 4 REM songs? Really? Fall On Me (which is about to be eliminated ) I can see but the other three? I didn't vote in these finals because I honestly found it too difficult to choose and I don't like only voting for a couple of rounds because I feel it kind of messes with the results.

But yeah, this is pretty bad...

...which frankly I don't get. Actually I get it but don't share that elitist sentiment that a true music fan does not like the stuff that thousands around the world do. We like what we like. It shouldn't change depending on how popular something is.
