Original of the Species was eliminated in the last round. Remaining are seven songs from How to Dismantle an Atomic Bomb, competing for two prizes: slots in the 2000s quarterfinal round. You have twenty-four hours to vote for your least favorite song, the next song to be eliminated from this contest. For anyone just joining us, rules may be found here.

hmm, tough, either SYCMIOYO or LAPOE would be my choice now. But I've a feeling Crumbs is about to die so I'll hold my vote for a bit.

Yup. Still sweeping those Crumbs off that table.

Crumbs is still here? What's this? Chalk up a win for the champions of sub-mediocrity...in a song dressed up with sanctimonious sincerity supposedly about third world debt delivered unconvincingly.

The recent tie indicates that perhaps my decision to abstain from voting this round was in error.

So Crumbs is barely mediocre, but Miracle Drug isn't?
Again, I'm missing the hive consensus here. If there's some performance of Miracle Drug that makes it really great, I'd like to hear it. Seriously. Right now it doesn't do much for me.

Almost all the songs on this record hover somewhere around average...Crumbs just stands out because it's just a rare truly awful song floating around in a sea of mediocrity. Neither Miracle Drug or OOTS are stand out U2 songs, and would be B-Sides on any other record but they're practically Streets when compared to Crumbs.

Sometimes what you say drives me crazy, and sometimes I think that it is spot-on. This is one of the cases of the latter.

Sometimes I like Crumbs. Sometimes I don't.

I like it enough this morning to vote for A Man and a Woman.

With a leedle bit of cooperation people, we can contrive a triple elimination and get through this sea of shite album a leedle bit quicker.

Yeah, I went with LAPOE to encourage a multiple-elimination.

Clearly COBL and Vertigo are most likely to win, though Miracle Drug has a dark horse chance...maybe.

Love And Peace Or Else... terrible title and a song that is not even near the greatness of great political songs like SBS, Pride, Please etc.

Love and Peace or Else. Really want Crumbs to hang around for another round or so... But I will vote for Crumbs if Man & Woman is threatened in the next round.
