Best Song Survivor: Atomic Bomb, Round Three

Yahweh was eliminated in the last round, leaving nine songs from How to Dismantle an Atomic Bomb competing for a lowly two 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.

ABOY doesn't do much for me, it's kind of always annoyed me.
I kind of like Crumbs, I'm not even sure why.

Will be voting to save Crumbs it seems, so I'll hold off for now...

Want City Of Blinding Lights and Sometimes You Can't Make It On Yer Own/Man and Woman to progress.

Crumbs is probably the first U2 song that I truly disliked, though that might have been because I discovered it during my libertarian phase.

I like both Crumbs and ABOY less than everything else here, so I'll be voting for one of them.

We're not doing a Sufjan Stevens album survivor here, Gaf. Duh.

OOTS and SYCMIOYO need to piss off. Horrible songs. One's a plodding bore and the other is twinkly saccharine crap.

Crumbs is one of the top two or three albums here and shouldn't be under threat.

All Because of You is poorly executed, has those double tracked vocals and has a weird chorus melody in that Bono cannot hit the one note.

Crumbs, to save All Because of You. That opinion does go against the grain, yes. I've always really enjoyed All Because of You, the only thing I really dislike about it is the godawful production.

Voted All Because of You because it's my least favorite on the album.

I really like the guitar work in Crumbs. And I don't mind the lyrics. Sure, the production could be better I suppose. But I still don't think it is anywhere near the worst song here!

Also like the guitar work in OOTS but geez, Bono does ruin it with his sugar cmon show your soul nonsense!

I actually wish we could all vote Vertigo off together.

ABOY is one of their worst songs ever.
