I voted with my ears so it's Tracey & YYYs. I could name at least a dozen Pretenders songs that are better than BIP.
In space no one can hear you clash!

Must say that I'm surprised by the lack of support for "Y Control." I thought Hoy had picked one that would go to the next round.
2 votes for my picks is what I expect. Anything more is a pleasant surprise. So par for the course for this one. It's a great, energetic, dirty art punk track, but whatever. I was hoping to add Maps, but that didn't happen and that should have gone far, but it probably wouldn't have.
Fever to Tell is a fantastic album, one of the best of that brief post-punk revival in the early 00's. Fucking bizarre to think that it's been almost 20 years now.
Back off, or I'll blow the roof off—with sound!

I have to say Hoy's choice was pretty decent. Id never listened to them before.
See? We aren't that different after all...
Yeah I fell kind of bad for not voting for it. I certainly prefer it over... ahem... some of the other options :shifty:

Voted for YYY's and Tracy. I forgot how crazy the video was for Y Control.

I'd do a poll but I'm sick of talking about it now.
There's a tiny, tiny hopeful part of me that says you guys are running a Kaufmanesque long con on the board

I've never liked the Pretenders. Her voice just kind of sets me on edge. Message of Love is ok but all those hit singles do zilch for me..

This surprised me. So many great tracks. Lots of melody and energy.

I guess if you don't like Chrissie's voice then fair enough but some great music.

I like them but as per a previous comment, i think they've a few better songs than BIP. Also digging the new album, nice solid retro guitar rock, sticking to the well worn formula.

Yeah, on paper they should be made for me.
