Aw, that wasn't so bad. The Futurama Amazonians would've appreciated it.

#139 Purulent - I Hate Your Dreadful Harelip
Rating: 0.3/10
Have I heard this before?: No
Nominator: @rwlh (5/5)

Starting off with that ear-splitting screech, this song can go a number of ways. Okay, heavy drumbeat, this is cool and… oh no. Here come the vocals. Admittedly I've never been the biggest fan of Death Metal (with a few notable exceptions), but that EURHGGEHGEHGRGHGHERHG just sounds so goofy that I can't take any of this seriously. At least with other Death Metal it can maintain the consistent “brutal” feel it has to it, but this ends up sounding more funny than it does heavy.

Good call on ranking Death by Sex last place.

#138 Schmoyoho - Can't Hug Every Cat
Rating: 1/10
Have I heard this before?: No
Nominator: @Raka_Putra (5/5)

I love cats as much as anyone else (except my roommate's cat who hates everyone), but this song just doesn't do it for me. This is strongly reminiscient of YouTube meme culture circa 2012 when everything was about Nyan Cat, Rage Comics, and slapping the Impact font onto any image you can find. So yeah, neither the humor value nor the heavily edited audio is really impressing me in any way. It just feels like a relic of a bygone era of the internet, one that I felt was a low point at that. The real cherry on top though, that gets this such a low ranking, is how shamelessly they plug their phone app at the end of the video. I could've really done without that.

I don't get it. I've never played TF2 myself, so I've never really understood its fandom and its esoteric references, in-jokes, and memes. This is very short, and the melody is kinda catchy, I guess? The whole context behind any of this entirely flew over my head, so this is just kinda “there”. This reminds me of in high school where there'd be those situations when one of my classmates would be bawling laughing saying “Hey dude, check out this hilarious song!” then I'd just be standing there completely expressionless wondering why this suddenly became the subject of our conversation. Also, apparently Xarlable was involved in this to some extent (hi)

Well, I was willing to listen to that entire song. I guess that does make it significantly better than the other three?

(It being 35 seconds long may have helped.)

#136 The Chipettes - Put Your Records On (Cover)
Rating: 2.5/10
Have I heard this before?: Yes, but not this version
Nominator: @Fluttershy_Pony (5/5)
Link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E7P19Ec5uY4

I was both excited and dismayed to see this nominated for my topic. I'm actually a fan of Corinne Bailey Rae and love the original version of this song, but man this does not stack up. The original would've placed much better. “Chipmunking” a song is really just the OG Nightcore. Bump the pitch up a bit and you get a fun little novelty, but this mix doesn't really add anything. It's a lot like Kidz Bop. This does score a few points from good source material, but I don't really see myself going out of the way to listen to this specific mix.
