Best Song Survivor: 2000s Quarterfinal, Round One

Electrical Storm and The Ground Beneath Her Feet received the most votes in the 2000s non-album round, and advanced to the 2000s quarterfinals. And the 2000s quarterfinal begins now. Nine songs are in quarterfinals, and four will progress to the 1990s/2000s semifinals. You have twenty-four hours to vote against your least favorite song. For anyone just joining us, rules may be found here.

I would have said Electrical Storm, but one of the myriad versions is cool.

Vertigo for sure.

What a crappy list compared to the 80s & 90s.

Vertigo. Once it's gone, I'd like MOS, Kite, and BD to follow, in that order.

My easy top three here is TGBHF, Electrical Storm, and Fez. Since four songs make the finals, I'd like NLOTH to join them.

Voting ground beneath in a likely fruitless effort to save Vertigo. Otherwise I'd have voted for fez.

Beautiful Day for me, although I rate Vertigo basically the same.

Top three - The Ground Beneath Her Feet (the only song from this era I would call a truly great U2 song), Kite and City of Blinding Lights

I voted for TGBHF forgetting that Vertigo was on this list. So, uh, I guess I'll change my vote to Vertigo. Not that it needs any assistance.

Electrical Storm is a B-side at best. How the heck did that even make it here? It's not bad, it's just not that good either.

Vertilow and Electrical Shitstorm are easily the two worst here. Slabs of banal dad rock, the sound of a band desperately clinging to the relevance they had recaptured, terrified they might lose it again. I fear ES is all but assured progression, but at least the yeah yeah yeah yeah song will get the bullet.

Fez having 6 votes to Electrical Storm's 2 is proof that opinions can be wrong.

I don't know, I like all of these. Vertigo, I guess.
