Default Re: All 147 Foo songs ranked

I don't see how anyone can really comprehend ranking 147 songs, I mean taking the time to listen to them all and then deciding exactly which order they should go in seems a bit of a no brainer. Anyway there's much I don't agree with in this list, particularly how high A320 is ranked, I mean to put that anywhere near the top is ridiculous, let alone putting it above All My Life and all those other songs. I expect it is purely because it was on the Godzilla soundtrack. One thing I do like about this list is how I'll Stick Around made it to number 5. It is usually forgotten about these days despite being one of their greatest songs. As for Everlong at number 1, well that was a bit predictable.

While everyone's list here would be different, I reckon we'd all be fairly close. Plus it depends on how you feel at the time. I'm not sure I could accurately rank all of the songs because I like some better at different times.

I haven't read anything on Spin for ages, the quality of their stuff is laughable. I've seen a couple of their other top lists and completely disagreed.

EDIT: Mind you, at least they put Make A Bet higher than Overdrive. They got that right...

I'm only on page one, and I'm already offended.

146.) Deepest Blues are Black
143.) End Over End

Not only are they towards the wrong half of the list, but how does Deepest Blues are Black end up NEXT TO LAST?

This was one of the few rankings that I agreed with. A320 is a majorly underrated song.

Thanks. Reading over that again 7 or 8 months later there are only a couple songs that I can see where I would definitely move quite a bit. Outside goes into the top 5 replacing The Pretender, and I would move Rope down quite a bit.
