Most Overrated Song Survivor: HTDAAB // Round 7

Most Overrated Song Survivor: Round 7
How To Dismantle An Atomic Bomb
----------------------------------------------------

Please vote for the LEAST OVERRATED song.

So basically you are voting for the song you think is MOST UNDERRATED.

This Poll will Run for 1 Day

How to Play
Each album will have a series of rounds of voting. In an album's first round, all songs from the album will be listed and you vote for the song you think is the least overrated (ie, you vote for the most underrated). The song with the most votes is eliminated. This continues through the subsequent rounds until we are left with just one song from each album. These victorious songs proceed to the final, which will be conducted in the same manner until just one song is left, which you can consider to be the most overrated song from that album.
If there's a draw, for most rounds, both songs are eliminated. If there's only 2 or 3 songs left, I'll leave the poll open for another day, when there'll hopefully be a decisive outcome. Thanks to Axver for this text

Round 5: Fast Cars
Round 4: Yahweh
Round 3: Crumbs From Your Table

Oh, you didn't get the memo that we all hate you? Yeah, that's right, every single Interferencer is out to get you!

Now you know.

It's usually trashed, more than Fast Cars for sure and I'd say more than Miracle Drug too (though, to be fair, Miracle Drug takes a hammering for "freedom has a scent ...").

I did get the memo, but it was just swearing!

I was surprised at Miracle Drug, but then by going in the middle it suggests it is fairly rated.

Actually I think Sometimes is the most overrated. It's the new One: just an average song, but because of the 'emotional content' everybody loves it.

But OK, we're supposed to vote least overrated: ABOY again.
