Re: Overlooked Songs 2: Nominations

Already pushed The Past is a Grotesque Animal to the 2nd round of the 00s poll, and don't want to depress everyone with "No Children" so my pick for the 3001-4000 section is :
Mötorhead - Overkill (3730) (could have gone to AC/DC - Let There Be Rock as easily)

Re: Overlooked Songs 2: Nominations

My favorite song in the 1001-2000 range is by far Between the Bars, but it got close to the top 500 last time so not sure it needs the spotlight as much as :
