Where the fuck is this pole? I'm very upset about this. Fuck you Rainman!

So I'm going to the lake today, a little chilly outside but not bad. You think when I get back this poll will finally be finished?

Print this poll out, and think about it when you're on the lake. Please consider musical composition, musical originality, lyrical poetry, lyrical meaning, and performance quality for both instrumentals and music.

Lots of good ones in this heat.


Obviously, Born to Run is in. It's iconic.

I'll also go with Mr. Sandman by the Chordettes. I realize it probably doesn't quite fit the image of rock and roll, but it's a forerunner and it's one of the most awesome songs ever.


I have one more spot, and pondered all of them.

Okay, both songs by AC/DC are horrible, just loud music. Hell's Bells started out interesting, but devolved into the sound of drums and a guitar falling down a flight of stairs. Live Wire was better, but still was never something I'd buy for my itunes. Too shrill.

The REO Speedwagon song was fine, but not noteworthy.

Dream Police is very interesting in part because it's unique. I would have no issue voting for it or seeing it advance. It didn't get my vote only because this is a strong heat.

Vertigo is the same. Very interesting sound, very unique. I'd be fine to see it advance, too, and it's worthy.

I voted for Landed. It's probably a protest vote because it's not really rock and roll, but wow, that's a great song. It's smooth, it tells a story, and I'm a sucker for songs that don't just use the traditional guitars and drums.

Springsteen is more overrated than the 2007 Jayhawks.

Cheap Trick and AC/DC for me. :thumb:

That and Dream Police are the only songs worth voting for.

We must have a software problem or something. I'm looking at the results, and it seems as if not everyone is voting for Born to Run. That can't be right.

This is a brutal lineup. It's going to be hard to pick just three. The people voting for the "Wow" option should be banned from the rest of this process.

My top 4 are listed below. Send me a rep message to tell me which one I should drop to help me make up my mind. The one that gets the most rep votes will be left behind and I'll vote for the other three.

I agree that Born To Run is iconic and it definitely deserves to make it out of this round. I'm not sure it's in my top 3 though.

I think the ipod commercials made Vertigo kind of iconic too. It's a great song from a band I'm not that big on.

Dream Police is a high energy song that I've always liked from an awesome band that doesn't get enough recognition.

Hell's Bells is the first song on the first vinyl record album I ever owned and I played the heck out of that album. Unlike Rain Man, I like the sound of drums and guitars falling down the stairs. In fact, this list seems to have been designed to draw out differences between RM and myself as we've got almost diametrically opposed opinions here. The only people who have worse takes on this list than Rain Man are the people who voted "Wow" (who, btw, should be banned from the rest of this process).

P.S. Golden Country would have easily made my top 3 in a few of the other heats.

Vertigo iconic? Pssh, it shouldn't even be up there.

Hey Rainman, to save you some time you can just type AC/DC instead of AC/DC and then the song title since all of their songs sound exactly the same. Thank me later.

I disagree, but if you feel strongly about it, you should tell me so in a rep comment so I won't vote for it. Comments like this in a regular post will carry zero weight in my decision making process. :)

Oh, that's an excellent idea. I'll start doing that.

Mr. Sandman isn't getting the love that it deserves. Tell me this isn't the quintessential sound of America in the 1950s. Tell me that you can't hear the primordial sounds of Elvis and the Beatles in this song. Tell me that you aren't bobbing and singing along as you listen to this.

Tsk tsk, someone didn't follow the instructions of my rep vote. You're supposed to vote on the one you want me to leave behind, not the one you want me to vote for. Please resubmit your input. Thanks. :)

Dang. Now I'm going to have to find five other people to rep before I can come back.

Okay, who else voted for Springsteen? Let me give you some rep.

For you Rain Man, I voted for Born to Run & Mr. Sandman. Both good songs. I voted for Cheap Trick as well for my kids giving me a CD of them one year for Xmas.

Landed by Ben Folds is the best song here by a mile. Not really a rocker, though.

AC/DC, Cheap Trick and then I had to go old, old school with Mr. Sandman. Just never been a fan of Springsteen (sorry, RM).

At least we got Springsteen in there with one of the best songs ever performed.
