i agree with "kool thing" wholeheartedly. the rest of the overrated list doesn't make sense at all.

"swimsuit issue" is one of their worst songs, but i can get behind 2-4 on the underrated list, even if i think they aren't that underrated amongst SY fans. i don't know where "the diamond sea" came from. i would have actually expected it on the flipside, maybe.

For me Murray Street is overrated.


greatness (Teenage Riot and DDN) can never be rated high enough!! like girls in fuzzy bikinis

When I get back home on Monday, I think I may have to break this apart.
I wish people would keep in mind that SY songs aren't like Beatles songs; a
"Lee song" is not like a "George song" in that he and he alone composed it.
