Most Overrated Song Survivor: HTDAAB // Round 1

Most Overrated Song Survivor: Round 1
How To Dismantle An Atomic Bomb
----------------------------------------------------

Please vote for the LEAST OVERRATED song.

Overrated in this context means "Which song is over-rated in general, by you"

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

I got a Premium Membership to make this poll, how (un)cool am I!
Could one of the Moderators please make this sticky?

So, the poll makes sense? I've never done it before so I looked at Axver's before making it.
How long do these things usually stay open before a result is declared?

I think you've got this nailed. I kept all my polls open for just a day (when you make the poll, you can specify a time limit), except for the very last round, which I left open for two days.

And as far as my vote, I chose One Step Closer. It's not even rated!

Wonderful...I voted AMAAW personally, but I can see this will be quite a tight one.
I personally think "COBL" will win (ie, lose)

OOTS.
Everyone talks about the big 3 (Sometimes/MD/City) or the rockers yet this is some of U2's best songwriting.

My vote goes to A Man and a Woman. It's not only *not* over-rated, it seems to be hated on this forum.

Oops, I'm an idiot, I voted on thread title alone. Please delete my vote for "Crumbs" which is the MOST overrated song, not the least. Sorry.

Replace it with OOTS.

Definently One Step Closer....That or AMAAW, they're both underrated.

I voted for Crumbs.

You need to change the wording of it to most underrating song rather than least overrated. It could get confusing for some people.

It is confusing, for me as well, but they imply different meanings. Most underrated isnt neccessarily the inverse of least overrated. argh, makes my head spin, maybe ill do it that way for the next round lol
