Gone is a good song, but I wouldn't rate it as one of their top 8 from the whole decade.

Gone should be gone.

Holding on to my vote to protect LWTSH, one of the best songs of the decade.

I'm happy to pile into anything that's not Gone, Zooropa, or The Fly - though One or UV really should be next to go.

My vote went to UTEOTW - won't make a difference. I do think this song is over-revered on this forum though - a great rocky song that probably isn't in the top 10 of the 90's.

I think this might be it for Larry With The Spinning Head.

I'd be sad to see it go, but on the other hand, we should be happy that a b-side lasted as long as it did against such strong competition.

I don't entirely disagree. It's incredible live, but the studio version is wanting. The guitar is mixed horribly - the one great part of the song, neutered.

Interestingly, it lasted longer back in the previous tournament in 2009. It was the seventh song to depart from the nineties finals, outliving Slug, Miss Sarajevo, YBR, LNOE, Lemon, and Mysterious Ways.

You get 10000+ awesome points.

I have the Robert Tepper - No Easy Way Out vinyl album because I could never find the Rocky IV soundtrack.
