Most Overrated Song Survivor: HTDAAB // Round 8

Most Overrated Song Survivor: Round 8
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

Okay....well at this stage we can see that only songs in the first half of Bomb are left and that all of the singles are here.

This can tell us the first half of the album is more overrated than the second, but is it better than the second?

I think people are having trouble with "over-rated". Well actually if A Man and A woman was already voted off before AboY, then I KNOW people are having a problem.

I.E. ABoY was an early single and yet does it compare to songs like origional or a man and a woman?

Its not vote for your favorite song or vote so your favorite song stays on, its getting rid of the songs that EVERYONE (forumers, radio, general public, the band) seem to like but in your opinion DONT deserve the praise.

Aren't those the types of songs that we don't vote for? Since it's Most Overrated Song Survivor, the most overrated song should ideally be left on the list after all the others are voted off, correct?
