The songs with "Time" in the title.
I use my sig to pimp some bands from Italy! Check out Elvenking (Power / Folk metal), Folkstone (Rock / Medieval metal), Arcana Opera (Gothic/Noir/Heavy metal) and the beautiful voice of Elisa!

I really hate that first match - super hard choice.
As a basic rule, if you hate it, you must solely blame Portnoy. If it's good, then you must downplay MP's contribution to the band as not being important anyway, or claim he's just lying. It's the DTF way.

Top seeds.
People figured out that the white thing that comes out of cows' titties could be drunk, and the relation between sweet desires and women's bellies growing up for 9 months. It can't be THAT hard to figure out how a trumpet works.”

Never understood where the love for OAMOT came from.  It's the only song from WDADU that I could never get into.  A very disjointed and unstructured mess of an ending to an otherwise fairly decent album.

TKH and Sac Sons, but these are all great songs, and I wouldn't be upset about any result here.

They played it at the first DT concert I attended in late 1992.  I wasn't familiar with WDADU at the time, so I was going in cold.  My friends and I all really loved it, and we dubbed it "the pirate song" because we thought the intro had a pirate-y feel.  Love everything about the song.

Hef is right on all things. Except for when I disagree with him. In which case he's probably still right.

I even get that many people like it more than me, but to see it squeezing out TKH (which is usually held up as the fan favorite of the entire album) is a bit surprising.
