Most Overrated Song Survivor: HTDAAB // Round 4

Most Overrated Song Survivor: Round 4
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

Fast Cars

For starters, only half of the people owning HTDAAB, have this song. And of the ones who do have Fast Cars on their copy, few proclaimed that they think it's fantastic.

So definitely not overrated.

Fast Cars is the best song off the album. At least it has balls and a personality. Blows the other songs to smithereens. Yahweh? Yah-right!

Fast Cars

"I watch them channel hop
Check the stocks
I'm in detox
I want the lot of what you've got
If what you've got can make this stop"

"underrated, overrated" -the album is still relatively new in the grand scheme of things. Let the album live a life longer than one year for God's sake. Let's try this again in 5 years. I'll make tang.

most of the people on this forum will have heard fast cars. and on that basis i included it.

And, all the previous survivors have had Bomb in - hence this does. It has after all been released for 15 months almost.

I really wonder how this sort of things can be said.
Vertigo is *not* underrated. I don't like the song all that much myself, but lots of people do. In fact, many people claim that it's the best rock song U2's ever made and that sort of nonsense. That's not underrating. That's overrating.

For Love and Peace goes the same. That song is not underrated. Look at all the 'alternative tracklists' at this forum. Many of them list Love and Peace as track #1, saying it's the best rock song ever, it's 'experimental' (man I hate that word ). That is not underrating, that's overrating.

And OK, maybe Yahweh isn't overrated. But certainly not less than Fast Cars.

Remember people, a song is not 'least overrated' if you think it deserves better. It's 'least overrated' if there aren't many people claiming it's the best song ever.

Could something between those lines please be included in the start post of next round's thread? Some people seem still not to get it.

I agree some people aren't getting the idea, but you can't dictate their choices. The poll is to find out the differences in everybody's opinion. By your fashion, everyone would vote for the same things...lets just see what the result will be.

Any predictions for the HTDAAB winner?
